This will be a CCW gun and I'm looking for a good all the way around combat vs. precision shooting sight. I'd love to get some suggestions on the correct dimensions. Help me fill in the blanks
Best Notch Width ____ ? As wide as you can get U-notch. Larger rear notches are better if you even get a chance to get sight alignment in a defense situation. 10-8 rear is great. Not sure about height.
Best Width _____ ? HiViz' standard green.
Best Height _____ ? See above. HiViz SW2007.
I really like the HiViz overmolding as it protects the fragile fiber.
My teaching and 'smithing partner has these on every gun he can. Never a problem.
On sights that don't have this feature, I use clear silicone to protect the fiber and keep it from coming loose under recoil.
On a fighting gun, the small amount of error from a slight sight height mismatch should not be a deal-breaker.
