So the AMERIGLO i-Dot Pro Sights are some of my favorite iron sights out there. And I've been using them now for about four-plus years. And as far as high-vis blacked-out sights go, they're some of the best on the market. So I wanna go over some of the features that they have.

They have a tritium ampule in the center of the high-vis front sight, and then they have a single tritium ampule in the rear. And while I'm not a real big fan of night sights for the traditional application that people think night sights are for, I like them under night vision. It does give you a way of somewhat accurately shooting a pistol under night vision, kind of seeing where your sights are. And having two ampules, basically what you'll see under night vision is you'll have the brighter ampule, obviously, depending on your lighting conditions, and you'll have a dimmer one, which is in the rear because of the focus that you set with your night vision. So you literally just put your bright one sort of inline with the more blurry blob that you have, and then you can somewhat accurately shoot. So I like the ampules for that reason, but I don't use night sights like the way people think night sights should be used because as soon as I activate my SureFire X300, everything's a silhouette at that point.The night sights do nothing for me if I'm just doing white-light.

So, blacked-out rear, I have a square notch, which I really like. I've used the other types of notches out there, and the square notch has just worked better for me. It's just a little bit easier to split the difference, in my opinion, with speed when you have a square front sight and then you have the nice little orange bullseye. Thing to note on the front sight, because of the tritium ampules, this nice little bullseye in the center, when you're shooting accuracy or distance, instead of focusing on the entire orange, you can focus on the center, little dot where the tritium is, and then use that to aim. But the big thing I like with these, because I have a high-vis front and I have a blacked-out rear, is it allows me to shoot with a hard-target focus, much more easily, where I'm focusing on the target, but I'm still aligning these. So I see bright orange, dark right behind it, and I can shoot accurately.

So let's go ahead and shoot this target we got right here. All right. So first off, we'll do some hard front sight focus. So I'm just gonna shoot into this little dot right here. Put the orange inside the black. All in. All in, a couple on the line. All right. So that was all hard-target focus. So I'm focusing on the target itself, and I'm just seeing this orange dot inside the valley, and I'm shooting with that. Now I'll do some hard front sight focus bottom, right circle. All in. Try to go a little quicker. All in, one on the line.

So yeah, these are my favorite irons out there. Extremely fast, very accurate. They allow you to do a hard-target focus, hard front sight focus, and shoot them with night vision, if you're into that sort of thing. So definitely check 'em out. They're also, obviously they're metal sights, so you have the advantages, in my opinion, of a fiber optic sight with a high-vis front, but you have the durability of having metal sights and not relying on a little fiber optic that can fall out. And that's why I really like these duty-grade irons. You can run for concealed carry. I've used these in competition, and then obviously you can use them for just range shooting—doing this right here. So, check 'em out.
