Curious what would be considerd the pros and cons of using a Race Cut, wider rear notch Heinie sight (.140 or .156) compared to a standard width sight (.125). And would those points apply to both a standard black and Straight Eight tritium sight?

I've used the standard Heinies and straight eights for many years and like them a lot. I understand the race cuts wider rear notch allows for faster acuisition of the front sight which is certainly a pro. I would imagine in theory though one may be giving up a slight amount of precision.

This would probably be a good question for the folks over at the "play pen" (glocktalk), as I believe there are many over there who use the Race cuts from CGR and I know he posts there as well.

I've used both and prefer the race cut . The wider rear makes shooting quickly easier. I have standard Slant Pro rear on my G34, but I have a very narrow front sight. If I were using a standard width front sight, I'd definitely opt for the race cut. I don't think that there are any drawbacks.

When I buy my Heinie's I will go with the race cut due to my aging eyes.
