For father’s day this year, my wife got a set of Aimline Sights from Shiloh Shooting, and I’m hooked.
The original M&P sights are the standard three dot arrangement. Put the front dot on your target lined up between the two rear dots, and your target is going to have a hole in it where the front dot was lined up. They aren’t fancy sights. They don’t glow in the dark, or do anything else fancy or neat. They simply tell you where your bullet will hit if you pull the trigger. Just like any other sights on a pistol, they are simple, and they just work.
The Original M&P Sights
I got an M&P Pro earlier this year, and the sights on that pistol are much better, both for casual shooters and for competition shooters. These are a fiber optic front sight, and a blank rear. (There is just one point of focus for your eyes, so focusing where you should is easy.) The blank rear can be disconcerting to some users at first, since there is nothing to “line up.” Once you get used to them, and realize that you don’t focus on the rear sights when you shoot, these work very well. My shot grouping with these sights improved greatly.
The M&P Pro Original Sights
Now on to the Aimline sights. I got these last weekend and got a chance to shoot with them this weekend. In a word, these sights are fantastic. They are very easy on the eyes, and work with your eyes natural tendencies.
Now the pictures that I have posted do not do any of these sights justice. I am not a professional photographer so these are pictures with my cell phone (No depth of field). My shot grouping with these sights impressed me, and I will definitely recommend these sights to anybody who has a Glock or an M&P. (They also have sights for a Sig Sauer, but being a Southpaw shooter, I don’t care.)
If you really want to know about these sights, check out their website, http://aimline.com/, but even the website doesn’t demonstrate these sights effectively enough, you need to see them for yourself.
