Rear Sight A Minus!

 

I never saw the reason for a black rear sight for NIGHT sights! And I still don't. The front sight is very good and easy to see in the dark, but it is hard to determine when the gun is correctly aligned. This is the ONLY part of the new model which I don't like and I haven't been able to find a place where I can order a real NS for the rear of the gun. I think the well known designer of the Carry missed the boat on this aspect of his design.

I have trouble aligning theses sights in transition lighting where I can still identify my target. In my opinion, there is no point of making night sights if you can't align the front and rear sights. You're doing little more than practicing point shooting with these sights. You don't have time for that in a defensive situation, nor do you have time to turn on the lights. Blacked out rears are for competition, not personal protection. It literally makes no sense from a strategic standpoint. I can only imagine it was due to politics that the decision was made to go with this sight design. Unfortunately, the only alternative is the thicker Trijicon HD sights where the front sight is 0.144" wide. Although I prefer the Ameriglo 0.120" T-CAP sights (such as Ameriglo model GL-212-165-120-OR-Q for Glock pistols), I'm going to buy the Trijicons because these do not work well in certain transition lighting that is more prevalent than you might think. Moreover, they should have been thinner.

Disappointed

 

Beretta installed these sights less than 6 months ago. The sight picture is very good. I've had many other Ameriglo sights and I'd say these are my third favorite from this company after the Bold and Agent sights they make for Glock. In fact, if they had rear serrations (for better contrast) and a single rear tritium vial in the rear (or a double set) they would be better for two reasons. One, the square paint on the front is very easy to pick up because it fills in the otherwise black corners. Second, they didn't add any more metal than necessary to the rear sight to show more of the target than most sights (only XS shows more. Lacking a rear tritium vial, however—as bad as it is—isn't the worst thing. THE TRITIUM IS SO DIM compared to my newer Ameriglo i-Dot sights on my Shield. I think Beretta either gave me VERY old stock or the tritium vials are smaller (I'm not sure), but if you want a bright front night sight, I'd check with Ameriglo fist or just get Trijicon HD's instead.
