    The STEYR PISTOL M-A1 Sights - I like them!

    I just saw these pistol sights for the first time yesterday.
    I don't think there are any other pistol sights exactly like them.
    I could be wrong about that though.
    I love the way the human eye would tend to want to naturally make the visual geometry perfect & they seem like the would be very accurate and VERY QUICK to align. Just my honest artist~type opinion.
    I really like these sights.

    "Fast and precise target acquisition due to the innovative triangular/trapezoid sights and the unique lockable safety system make this semi-automatic pistol what a handgun should be in modern times."

    Scratchy

    Yep, Same Principle.
    In fact...THANKS for providing that link.
    They might even be a little easier on older eyes.
    Luckily I do not a Front Sight vision problem....yet.
    The SureSight look like they would be real easy & natural to grab a perfect sight picture.

    QK, I have several (as in 3) Steyrs in .40 S&W that I purchased from CDNN within the last 2 years and I love them!
    The front sight is WAY easier to aquire than with any 3-dot system I've tried.
    Steyr ergonomics are top notch, also

    Hmmm - reckon that sight picture would work nicely with my old eyes - very ''intuitive'' and even if fuzzy probably quick to aquire.

    Good to know about QK, thx.

    Steyr

    Well, they have only been making guns for what??? about 200 years.
    VERY high quality pistols.
    I would like to buy one just to shoot those sights!
    My curiousity is peaked on natural eye alignment pistol sights.

    These pistols might look a little different, but they point very well and allow you to get a grip directly under the bore line which helps with recoil management.
    I took a full-size M-40 to a 2-day class with Andy Stanford last fall and fired over 500 rounds without a single hitch of any kind...

    I think they look great & have a nice ergonomic style or design.
    So many fantastic guns...so little time to own them all.

    I had a M9 for a while and it functioned without a hitch. Grip angle and the sights always had me shooting way low when I pointed it.
