Dawson/Heinie sight combo for G17

Recommended Posts

Can't think of any Steve, off the top. In case you haven't, take a look at the Warren/Sevigny Competition set with the fiber optic front. Lots of daylight on both sides of that blade.

I got mine from http://www.cpwsa.com/ He's in our vendor tent.

Why the Heinie SlantPro rear, just out of curiosity? I find the slanted forward face of that rear sight design really picks up distracting light glare. I much prefer the backdrafted (i.e. the top of the sight comes further to the rear than the bottom) face of the WTS rear sight since, in most angles of light, the rear sight face is always black because it's always in shadow.

Hey Koski!

(Yeah...it's Z from GP.com....). Dawson Precision sells the Heinie Slantpro rear and you can buy either their thin FO front sight or wider ones depending on your taste. I was running the Heinie Slantpro with a .125" Dawson FO front. Plenty of daylight. I shoot both indoor and outdoor and never noticed any glare on the Heinie rear sight.

C ya!

Hello: Try the Warren rear sight and the Dawson 0.105 fiber front. This is a great combo for those small steel plates at 30 yards :cheers: I think you can get them from Shooters Connection. Thanks, Eric

Duane,

The forward slant makes on the Heinie's make them better for carry IMO. Less obtrusive, less sharp of a surface pointing out into space. I see no glare on them. Serrations may be helping.

Nice blurb on overhand vs slide release BTW.

Thanks, Steve. I appreciate the compliment.

On the other topic, I'm not sure there's really a right and wrong answer there, just different experiences and opinions maybe. I've never had a problem with the back drafted WTS sights hanging up on anything in concealed carry, or during a draw from concealed carry. And I find the serrations on the SlantPros, which are supposed to cut down on glare on a forward slanting rear sight face, to me just catch and reflect light and make the situation worse. :lol:
