Did a search and came up empty.

Anybody use these sights? Pros & Cons?

I tried a set on my G23 and found them very fast at close range but my accuracy suffered at extended ranges so I removed them in favor for the three dot. Also because my issue 17 had three dot and I wanted the same set up. However I have a friend who can make solid hits at extended ranges with his and I have read some good reviews by some reputable people. So I am thinking of giving them another try.

They work great, IMO.

Close up - dot on the target

Distance - target just above the dot

Just a matter of using them and practice.

It is personl taste...I have some and took them off my 21..I went back to trijicon but with yellow rears and green front.
I plan on installing them on a G30.
They do work as advertised and for real world combat distance they excell.
Just don't work so well for ME as a paper puncher...Maybe alittle more practice with them.

I have a set of big dot 24/7 on my 23. I really like them. Sight alignment is very fast but not recommending for bullseye shooting. My rear bar went dead after a year. I called XS Sight Systems - I had a free replacement in hand in three days - great customer service. Buy a set - my .02.

Bought a set, didn't dig them to much. Just like knowing exactly where my shot is going to end up.
Am now using Ameriglo Operators.

I have a pair of big dots on a G23 and a pair of small dots on a G30. I probably have too many guns and like them to be set up alike.
Switching from regular sights over to the Express sights takes me always a magazine full until I am close to where I am with Meps.
I decided to take them off again but if you have this as your main set up and get used to it, I can imagine that it will work very well for you.

They are bright and good quality.

+1, Have a set on a 19,takes a little practice to get use to at extended range.But once you get the hang of it you can make soild COM hits 25+ yards.

I have the big dot on my G26. It took a couple of magazines to figure out where the sight goes but now I can hit the steel plates at 25 yards most of the time.
