Do the 2017 proxduction Guns have three dot sights, or should I expect to have to have them installed if I buy one? Thanks very much!
I personally would look at a Custom TLE, for a little more money you get night sights and frontstrap checkering. I found a couple with a quick search and you can probably find one even cheaper if you look hard enough. The TLE also comes in stainless if you prefer.

Jeep,

Thanks again for the kind comment on my Custom II, I decided to make one more change, I am adding a black grip safety like I did to my U. C. II's. The silver just looks out of place to me. It will arrive from the "Mother Ship" saturday, will post pix later.

Here is a pic of my Ultra Carry II's showing how the Custom II will look.

Here is the finished product, I think the black grip safety is a huge improvement!
Before I tore it down to insert the safety I ran another 200+ rounds through it, not a single issue! That around 700 rounds through it at this point. Such an accurate and reliable piece!
