I have a set on my G19. They give me a hard-on everytime I look at them, lol. A friend of mine works for Trijicon and hooked me up with a set a month or so ago

Ok, so to answer your question. No, it is not anywhere near as large as the XS front site. It is definitely a little larger than say a standard Glock front site post. I have not noticed any difference in my accuracy since changing my sites out, but I have noticed a significant difference in how quickly I can acquire the front site and how much easier it is to follow the front site during rapid fire drills in comparison to any other night sights I've ever used. I love them, in case you haven't noticed.

Hope this helps.

Do you find it hard to see the rear sights?

I really like the look of them, but the black rear sights is the only downside.

Also do you have the orange or yellow? I'm looking at the orange ones.

Ameriglo makes something similar, if I'm not mistaken. They call them Hackathorn sights, or something.

I guess it is personal preference (isn't everything with pistols?) but I prefer a more subdued rear sight. The fantastic thing about these sights is the u-shaped rear. It is really unnecessary to have the sights there at all since the front sight sits in there perfectly. And, truth be told, the self-defense shooting I do really doesn't require pin-point accuracy. Using the Vicker's shooting method, 5" groups are a bare minimum standard at fast speeds, and I can quite easily keep to that standard inside 15 meters assuming I do my part.

The rear sights look like normal night sights during low-light conditions, however.

I have the yellow/green. I was told by my Trijicon friend that the yellow are quicker to acquire, and that's why he got me these. His personal testing and a few police departments that Trijicon had testing them all said the yellow/green were quicker to acquire. I haven't tried out the orange, so I can't speak from personal experience, but I'm sure I would love to try them out myself.
