I am looking into acquiring the XS sights for my pistol and wanted to know the differences between the BIG DOT and the standard dot variation. Those who have used them please chime in.

I have the standard dot versions on six of my handguns and I love them. Early on, I had the BIG dots on two of my handguns then changed them to standard. The BIG dot is very quick to pick up for combat situtions, but is a little tough for trying to get any real accuracy when target shooting. I tend to do both and the standard works better for me.

Big dot is great for close, fast acquisition. It was a PITA for further out precision.

I went with the Standard dot on my Sig 228 and 220 and very happy that I did. I know some friends who prefer the Big Dot on their wheel guns.
