    Any GP100 owners change their sights to something a bit easier or bigger to see? Theres nothing wrong with the originals. Just curious about other options.

    I checked out the site. They look interseting. Says only front site and needs a smith though?

    That sound right? I thought the front site came off on the GP100.

    I got these for my XD carry gun and am very happy with them..

    check'em out.

    I will be getting them for my Ruger(s) a P90 and a GP-100.

    they are worthless in low light situations ,but so are the o.e.m. sights.
    Guns don't kill people , compounded interest kills people

    Fixed-sight GP100s have a pinned front sight; I believe the XS product is that type. Ruger sells a replacement GP100 front sight for the adjustable models that has a red insert. As for rear sights, look at Bowen's custom stuff at Bowenclassicarms.com. I have one of the Rough Country sights mounted on one of my 4" GP100s, but have not yet dialed it in at the range, because I think I want to buy one of the click-adjustable models for that GP100, and put the Rough Country on another sixgun.

    The XS sight has a non-drilled tab, so you have to remove the factory sight, place the XS part and spot-drill using the hole as a guide, then pull the sight, and drill through, then place-n-pin.

    If you have a drill-press, it isn't a challenge, or if you take your time, you could do it with a hand-drill.
