    C-More sights?


    I've been shooting USPSA for about two years now, in Production (G34) and Limited-10 (G35) divisions. Being "over 50", like many others I've struggled with my vision, so I'm now using Dawson adjustable competition sights with a fiber optic front sight, and bifocal shooting glasses made with the "reading" lens placed well up so that I can focus on the front sight through the bottom lens. It works, but there has to be a better way.

    Open guns have interested me because the older shooters I know in that Division swear that the red dot sights make a huge difference to them. I've stayed away from Open guns because I just don't like the idea of using one of those weird Ghost-type holsters, and the cost of Open guns has been a concern.

    One of the local guys did very well at a big USPSA shoot, and I noticed he was shooting what looked like a pretty standard G35, with this neat C-More sight mounted right on the slide. With this setup you can use standard holsters, and because it's a Glock, the overall price is reasonable. It looks like I could just add the sight to my Limited-10 G35, buy a couple of magazine extensions, and I'd be ready to go. My expectation is that if this sight makes that much difference, my shooting will improve some, and it will be more fun. I don't expect to suddenly become competitive in Open, I just want to improve.

    I thought I'd check with the forum to see if anyone has direct experience with them, owns one, and if you do I'd like to hear your thoughts about this particular sight.


    Thanks,
    Chris

    I've heard that one advantage to the red dot sights is that you only have to focus on one focal plane... I don't know much more than that... I've never tried one on a pistol...

    I'm interested in your glasses... Did you go to a gun specialist or have them made at a local optometrist?

    The local optometrist did it, nothing special (see photo for results). They just grind the bottom lens higher, a LOT higher, and I can focus on the front sight through it without tipping my head back. Works OK. If you can't see the lens in the picture, let me know and I'll post a bigger one.

    Yes, I can see it... Thanks...

    So, it's a true bifocal, not a progressive?

    I wear progressives... When I line up a shot everything is blurry... Then I tilt my head back to get the front site in focus... Not the fastest practice...

    Yes, true bifocal. I tried progressives, they made me dizzy, couldn't adjust to them. With these glasses, the front sight is sharp, the target is a hazy outline out there, and with steel I see "about" three poppers instead of one: one on each side of the real target that's sort of grey, and then I see pretty much the center of the real popper.

    It's hell getting old, but it beats the alternative.

    I can see where a bifocal would be better for shooting...

    I have an adjustable-reticle red dot sight on my "slightly" midified Taurus PT-99 (pic link)...and on a Ruger Mark II (pic link), set up for target shooting.

    I know everyone's opinion of them is different but, for me, I can shoot more accurately, and acquire the target faster with them.

    I did run into something recently with them, though.

    I bought a new one (el-cheap-o version off of Amazon) and, when I installed it and looked through it, the reticle was fuzzy...just slightly out-of-focus. I tried cleaning the glass (both sides), alcohol q-tip on the little projection screen. Nothing worked.

    Then, for some reason, I got an idea...I looked through the sight using my LEFT eye (I'm right eye dominant) and the reticle was perfectly in-focus!

    Turns out, I was wearing my glasses (I usually wear contacts), and my eyeglass prescription is a few years old (I don't wear them very much so I don't update the lenses in them as often as I should).

    So, if you're thinking about this type of sight, I'd recommend finding a store that has them in stock and take a look through one, holding it around arm's length...make sure you can focus clearly on the red dot. When it's only a little bit out-of-focus, a 3 MOA dot gets very big, very fast.

    Try One Source Tactical / Gabe Suarez's team are "huge" proponents of these.

    Never used one myself so no first hand info. But interesting.
