    Call Sara, she is the one who usually answers the phone, and ask. They will be open first thing Monday morning. I have straight 8's on a custom 1911, they are the best. R. Heinie is the best for a reason.

    I do, and I have them on my Glock. I prefer the 2 dot verticle set up to 3 dot sights.

    I have brand new 3 dots on my Kimber TLE...to tell you the truth, in fast aquisition, they can be a bit distracting,....When these fade, I will probably replace them with straight 8s...they are much quicker to pick up...in the mean time, I may just tape over the rears..I have a single front on my P7 and I like how quickly my eye goes to a single green...

    I like Dick's Staight Eights. I have a Star 38 super from the '50s that has a red dayglow dot on the front and one one the back that gives me the same sight picture. I do not care about nite lites becuase I have done a lot of shooting in the dark. I love them for the neat idea factor, but have gotten rid of all of them except for the front sight on my LWGI and that was a left over from a trade. We offer them as an option in black on black in the Online 1911 Class and they are very nice sights. His lo-mount fits a Novak cut. We use all of his front sights on the Class1911's because they are just the right height.
