View Full Version : What sights do you use for IDPA?

Just trying to get a concensus on what type, make, model of sights everybody uses for IDPA.

I shoot my carry gun: Springfield PX9109L 5" parkerized in .45ACP with the standard fixed night sites. Simonich Gunner Grips, 3M 'stair tape' on the frontstrap and under the trigger guard, S&A magwell, 18# recoil spring from ISMI, shockbuff. Wilson 8-rnd mags, KyTac Sooper Hooper (although I usually carry in a BraveHeart...which I will shoot sometimes too, depends on how tough the competition is and how badly I want to win that day :) ), Comp-Tac single mag pouches.

You're gonna get a crazy range of answers unless you specify a platform.

Me, I shoot a wheel, and use a Millet rear and SDM fiber optic front.

Plain black rear, red fibre optic front. Various brands, but all the same color combination except I have tried one with white spots beside the rear notch.

Oh...you only asked about the sights... Palin Jane notch and post with green tritium inserts.

Heinie Slant Pro sights on either a G17 or a G26.

I like a Heinie rear, and .100" wide fibre optic front.

Heine custom cut rear, Dawson optical .100 front. It's my favorite sight combo, and lives on all of my iron-sighted guns.

XS 24/7 Standard dot.

Works perfect for everything except stage 3 of the classifier. :)

Meprolight 3-dots on my 1911.

Bomar adjustable on a 1911. Simple post front sight.

I have a Heinie SlantPro plain rear and a .125" Dawson FO on the front. Love it. I tried them all before I settled on this set up. Tried all black, 3 dot, tritium 3 dot, black rear with white dot. Didn't like any of them.

Bo-Mar rear with a green fibre optic front post, either an EGW or Brazos Custom.
