Sight

Nobody likes the big white dots? At 75 my eyesight is not what it used to be. The big white sights help me in target acquisition. Liked them so well had a set installed on my kimber target.

I love big white dots. I can see them in direct sunlight, I can see them in really dim light.

The newfangled sights with all their fiber and tritium don't excite me all that much. Yellow is good. But I'm a bit colorblind, so green and orange are just plain bad.

I have just standard white dots that came on my Micro 9, and they have pretty large dots. I like them a lot!

Large orange dot front sight seems to be a popular these days. When I was at Glock Smyrna Georgia a few weeks ago they asked my if I wanted standard night sights or Truglo night sights with an orange front dot.

I have Ameriglo sets with a version of this front sight on most of my pistols...not my Kimbers, because I like the way they are.

I liked the large white dots on my Pro Carry, but over time I have found while I can see them pretty good, I don't seem to shoot them quite as well as the smaller night sight dots on my Glocks.

Since the Pro Carry has turned out to be an awesome weapon, I am wanting to convert it to night sights and would like something like Bigdog posted above. But the only ones I have found for Kimber so far are Tritium/Fiber combo sights. I don't think I would like the fiber sights honestly. Something in a standard night sight with an orange front would be perfect.

I have liked the white dot but now I have dabbed fluorescent orange in it and like it better.

Trijicon makes one for Kimber that has a white luminous ring around the green night sight dot.
