post to talk shop about everyday carry pistols, specifically sights.
Those of us who appendix carry know the pain of having a sharp rear sight jab you in the midsection, particularly when bending over, crouching, kneeling, etc. Not only that, but those sights would tear up that are of my shirts.
For the last 6 Year’s, I’d carried with some of the sharpest rear sights on my Glock and just accepted this fate as the price of being armed.
About a year ago, a contemporary of mine turned me on to Dawson Precision sights. The fiber optics definitely made it a lot easier to get fast and accurate hits on target, but still had the same sharp, rearward slanted rear sight.
Then I got curious. I noticed Dawson made a sight that was originally designed for MOS Glock and therefore had a shorter footprint in order to not protrude over the end of the slide as well as has a forward slanted, less sharp geometry for them.
So I traded a hair’s breadth of sight radius for comfort.
So glad I made the change.
If you’re an appendix carry guy but also want to alleviate these issues, heed my caution and buy the MOS rear sight and your prescribed front sight separately. Your gut and wardrobe will be glad you did. 😎
