So what are the differences between a QWIK and LEDGE from Heinie Slantpro sights?

Your inputs are greatly appreciated. :)

QWIK just means the rear sight has a wider .156 notch which allows faster acquisition of the front sight at the cost of some precision (in theory). The ledge has a more aggressive face profile over the gradual slope of the standard slant pro which allows a catch point for single handed racking of the slide if necessary. They are not mutually exclusive, you can have the ledge profile sight with a wide notch.

The QWIK has a wider rear cut for faster sight alignment, the Ledge is a modified classic leaning forward so you could crank it easier with only one hand if you needed to.

I just have the old Classics... No trick sight is a substitute for learning how to shoot correctly.

Got it. Thanks Pipboy and Highlander51. I think I will go with the classic :)

Edit: I meant the LEDGE, the second picture.

Sight pictures are the same. Ledge has an extra feature where you can rack the slide one handed easier. I like the ledge, will install ledge if I were to chose from the two.

^^ Yep. I like this added feature. Going to order straight from Heinie.com. Thanks.

I've got to say Heine makes great sights the thing I didn't care for though was I received 2 sights with the rear tritium dot was off center. It still shot great because I don't use the rear dot but it kind of turned me off for my next sight purchase for another gun. So I went with the Trijicon HD's and I honestly think these are the end all sights for my application.

As Sterling Malory Archer would say, "Phrasing"...
(sorry, I couldn't resist)

I have a Trijicon on my HK USP also and I shot best with it so far. Since I'm wearing prescription glasses, I like to try the Heinie sights and definitely without the dots. Thanks.

I like it with front night sights. The slight contrast helps a lot for me.
