Hey All, Hate to start out with questions but I need oppinions. Just wondering if anyone had tried the meprolight of trijicon front sight for a Ruger SP101? Was thinking about purchasing one and was curious to anyones experience, such as ease of installation and do they seem to be pretty much regulated with the stock front sight or did installing it change your point of impact? Any experiences shared would be appreciated. Thanks, stay safe

Hey rycher, I don't yet have an SP101 but will be going through Gemini Customs for it when I do. I thought I would turn you on to there SP101 stuff along with sites. Give you an option anyway.

the wife and i have xs big dots on our 649's. didn't really notice any poi change, but then we (the wife and i) are not super target shooters. the smith in town installed them. they do help to get on target quicker, especially in low light, plus the guns are easier to find in the dark,lol.

Craig, you gotta pick? Don't think I've seen XS big dots on a wheel gun yet. I'd like to see what they look like!

I have night sights on my two Glocks, and on my wifes HK. In low light they are a big help finding the sight picture. At some point I will put one on her SP101.

It may not be as effective because the rear sight is just a standard sight. But given the rear sight is sliver in color, and not black it should be an improvement.

As far as insulation, it should be a snap. Push out the pin holing it in place, out it should come, new sight in. Put the pin back in. Unless you have the correct size punch it may be cheaper to have a gun smith do it. I would say around $10. At least that is what my local smith charged me to press in the back sights on my Glock.

ti carry... sorry, webtv can't do pics. the sights are bigger than the stock sight and much easier for these older eyes to find. they're not for target shooting, but work fine at defensive ranges. i think they make one that's pretty close to stock size for more precise target shooting. the big dot still fits in most carry holsters with no problem, but check with the holster maker to be sure
