XS big dot sights?

Anyone have any first-hand experience with XS sights on handguns? I'm a little intrigued by them but haven't ever used them.

SAVE YOUR MONEY!
Have a set on a Hi Power, not for target use, hard to get a good sight picture. And to install them you have to cut their dovetail, both front an rear. And to use something else, you have to weld slide up. Would be ok on a double rifle for fast shooting.

They have them already sized to fit existing dovetails/holes on glock & M&P, which are the two guns I was thinking about; so the installation isn't my biggest concern. I was wondering if they might not be good for short-to-medium-distance fast pistol shooting, since (as you mention) they're often used for that type of shooting on big, dangerous-game double rifles.

I do okay with normal sights, but these have gotten enough positive reviews for the past few years that they piqued my interest some.

Close fast shooting. Past 10 or 15 yds, forget it.

Anyone have any idea how many organizations that issue large amounts of handguns use anything other than plain black iron sights?

As soon as FordPerfect gets down here, will have him take a couple pics of them on my HiPower.
