New Sights on the Shield.

This is an update.  I left this here for a couple of hours this morning, and went about other business, like installing the XS DXT2 sights on my SW M&P Shield.  I needed the video to get my grandson on the right track.

Grandson is a school-trained 91F (Small Arms Repairer).  The conversation went something like this:

Me: "Hey, Slick, want to put some sights on a pistol?"
Him: "Yeah, we did that in school."
Me: "Great!  Sit your butt down here and weatch this video so that you can see the process for this pistol."

Ten minutes later we were out in the shop, putting soft jaws on the vise.  Thirty minutes after that, the sights were installed.

Now, I have the same sights on my 1911 and my little Shield.  Serendipitously, after the tools were put away, we were able to enoy a noon meal of Red beans and rice, fried squash, and cornbread.

Now, I'm in for the afternoon.  We have another proect planned for tomorrow.

I run XS Big Dots on everything I own that they're made for. They're the most effective fast-acquisition irons I can imagine -- after all, they're adapted from Express rifle sights that dangerous game hunters have been using for more than 120 years -- and I don't understand why they don't dominate the HD/CCW market.
