    I love fiber optic sights. In the daytime. Since I rarely am out and about after dark these days I find them very useful for daytime excursions. For night sights I like Sig's XRay3's. Having that green circle around the tritium really brightens them during the day. I even added some green sight paint to the white ring around the outside of my front ECO night sight, making them much like the XRay3 sight. But my favorite are Fiber Optic/Tritium sights. Best of both worlds. My PM45 came with them, and I wish all my carry guns had them.

    Yes! TFO's are the best of both worlds in my opinion. And those fron sites that have a green or orange surround are icing on the cake.

    Got my P365 to the range and in my hands it groups well.
    But hits low with the OEM X-Ray NS
    I'm having them swapped out for the new XS DXT2 Optic Orange Big Dot sights.

    Also having an OEM stock put on my Galil ACE 308 pistol.
    It appears the tube and buttstock maybe out of specifications?
    Gunsmith, twice, tried to jam it together and pass it off to me as functional?!?!
    It's frozen (buttstock) and will not move.
    Supposed to be collapsible/adjustable.
    I finally pitched a fit the second time.
    And had them replace the brace and give it back to me with no charge
    Unbelievable.

    Contacted IWI and I was past their 15 day window for returns.
    They did admit some buttstocks were indeed out of spec.
    And sent me a second buttstock free of charge.
    They stated that this one would work.
    I hope the tube isn't damaged as IWI doesn't have any more tubes.
    Looks like I'll be looking for a new gunsmith for the second (actually third) attempt.
    This is my baby (wanted the same adjustable stock as my carbine).

    Other than that stock issue, sounds like you've been having some fun actually shooting lately Barth. I know some of us tool around with them a lot, but shoot very little. As of late, I fit that bill unfortunately.

    and I'm not sure it's less expensive to tool around with them than shoot them anymore. Parts ain't cheap!

    Agreed! All around more expensive these days.
    Just picked up something you and I have been talking about 😁
    Got the Garison Commander 9mm. I know yours is right around the corner. From 1st fondling at least, I love it! Pretty lil gun!

    Yes they are purdy aren't they? Looks like a nice thick thumb safety too! I have a feeling we're really going to enjoy these.

    I swear they broke out their old school specs on that safety. Looks just like the one I love so much on the CCO.
    I think we will indeed enjoy them. Now that Iím going to be broke for a bit, I might just go shoot this one, rather than break it down for modification. Put some ammo through it and the RIA at the same time. You gonna get right into your mods? I just donít have everything I need yet, but I do have ammo!

    I'm going to swap out the barrel bushing for a black one. The trigger for a black one. And the grip bushings for standard size. And at some point checker the frontstrap in either 25 or 30lpi, and then reblue it. That's all I have planned. No magwell for this, but I will use magwell grips on it. Wait, we're supposed to shoot our guns?
