View Full Version : Ashley Big Dots anyone?

I've searched the old threads for any info on Ashley Outdoors Big Dots and I've found few hits.
Either they are really new or folks just don't use them (or they're a secret). ;)
They sure seem like they'd work well on my rifle-sighted 870. The stock sights point really great for me but I like the idea of a bigger front sight and then, of course, I'd need that shallow V-shaped rear to go with it.
Please share some of you opinions.

I've seen zero bad stuff about any of the Ashley stuff, Mike, but before you grab the plastic and the phone to get some....

Remember the Pragmatic Engineer's First Rule:

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it"...

You say the sights you have work well. Catch my drift?....

I have the Ashley standard dot tritium sights on both my AR and on my Vang Comp. I like them.

Question are you interested in tritium N/S or non N/S sights?

If N/S - go with the standard sized dot. Why? POI will be much closer to POA at night as compared to what you are used to in the daytime.

Did these guns come with the AO sights or did you buy them yourself? I am looking for the best source. Any photo's of that Vang? I sure would like to check that out.
