My name is Chaim Stein, and I'm the inventor of the SureSight.
Mr. Yeager has not yet had any direct experience with my sight, and he was basing his assessment entirely on speculation. I offered him a set free of charge for his evaluation, but he never responded.
For those interested in reading reviews of my sight by people who've actually used them
, check out this thread over at Glocktalk: http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread....ight=suresight
Below is my entire response Mr. Yeager's above-quoted post, taken from the same thread as Mr. Yeager's post:
You seem to be basing your analysis of my sights on the mistaken assumption that because the Steyr sights contain a triangle, and my sights form a triangle, they are the same concept. This is false, in the same way that asserting that a Dodge Viper is a “knock off” of a Ford Model T, since they both have round wheels.
In point of fact, SureSight functions completely differently from Steyr’s triangle/trapezoid sights, and the experience of aiming with one is not at all similar to the Steyr sights. While they both use triangles, the Steyr sights are aligned in precisely the same manner as notch and post sights. It's just that the sides of the rear notch are turned in at about a 45 degree angle. This leads to many of the shortcomings you explained, but your assessment does not apply to SureSight.
With SureSight, alignment occurs vertically, with the front pentagonal shape visually “stacked” atop the rear sight. The end result is that when the sights are aligned, a triangle is formed, with the tip of the triangle being point of impact.
Some of the advantages of this setup include:
* A simplified flash sight picture whereby the rear sight is not emphasized at all.
* A much larger, more visible, faster and easier-to-acquire front sight. (By far the largest of any front sight on the market)
* Increased speed of sight acquisition and better sight visibility during both the arc of recoil and while shooting on the move.
* More easily seen for bifocal wearers and those with "older eyes".
* A more intuitive sight alignment. People are hard-wired to complete shapes, as in turning the front and rear sight shapes of SureSight into a triangle. This phenomenon is known as the Gestalt Principle of Closure. (see www.suresight.com for details and diagrams—it may not be up yet, but will be shortly. We’re currently re-working our website. If it's still not up, you can see a quick description HERE) If you have normal brain function, you were born with the ability to do this.
* Another unique advantage of this setup is the ability to focus intently on one's target and still have the ability to align the sights--intuitively. Out to at least 7-10 yards, (and well beyond for some people) this is a very effective technique with SureSight. Functioning in this capacity, several people have aptly described them as “point-shooting sights”.
Finally, I’m sure you’ll be happy to know that SureSight is most certainly ON ALL my self defense Glocks.
I’d love to send you a set so you can draw your own conclusions. If you hate them, that’s fine, too. I would just like to get your honest opinion after you’ve actually tried them.
Please PM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
Hope that helps,
