the ghost ring looks like somthing that would be good for fast sight alignment in a selfdefence situation. no lining up dots just look through the whole and if you see you front site that is probobly close enough for hitting center mass. and probobly faster follow up shots to. I sure it isnt somthing you want to use if you are for instance "hickok45" and you are shooting @ 200yards LOL!!

what do you think? is it worth $57?
if you have seen them b4. how big r they? (ok for CPL)

thanks a bunch. keep it glock and you save your c$%#

I have a set on an issued G18C, and for that purpose I like them. You have to get a little creative with a standard sight tool to install them as they are so tall. Also, there may be issues with some holster designs (duty style holsters anyway).

As for the dots on sights, they are for reference only. You should NOT be lining up the dots. You should be using the sight bodies. Please refer to my blog entries for a full explanation.

ghost ring sights do offer some folks quicker target acquisition but at the cost of some aiming precision.

since you'll most likely not have time to acquire sights in the first place during defensive scenario, i'd rather just stick with standard sites.


use the $57 for ammo to practice point shooting. that'll serve you far better than ghost ring sights :)

I vote NO. I've shot them before and didn't feel particularly quicker on target. In fact, I prob spent too much time trying to make sure I was on target. I would stick with traditional dots myself. Ameriglo is my preferred brand.

Funny story, I was in class yesterday and the 20 students were split into two squads of 10. We rotated through, one squad was shooting while the other was re-loading mags. Anyway, I was standing behind NTA while he shot. He is running the ProGlo from Ameriglo with orange. I was at least 10-12 yards behind him but could clearly see his front sight the entire time. It was that easy to pick up even from a distance and an odd angle.

If you absolutely must try something "different" (I've tried most of them myself, it's part of the learning curve) I would suggest the XS Big Dots. That's about as non-traditional as I would feel comfortable with at this point.
