    So I just bought myself (and my wife) a Springfeild XD45 for our home defence weapon, now I want to upgrade the sites, would anyone have reccomendations for sites and a smith to install them?

    I regularly have the Truglo TFO fiber night sights in stock and can install them for you. Changing the sights on an XD can be a nightmare. If you are interested give me a call.

    IMO the XS big dots are junk and force you to learn a different site picture. For very up close and personal work they are fine but for target shooting or anything longer than about 15yards forget it. I'd stick with Trijicons or Meprobrights or if made for the XD Heine Straight 8s. I bought a set of the big dots for my M&P 357sig last March and when I got them they looked and felt like cheap plastic so I sent them right back to Brownells. Do a search for XS Big Dots and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    x2 as someone who also had and disliked the XS Big Dots (on a Para-Ord). I should have tried to sell them before they got too dim!

    I love my trijicons but I'm eager to try out the Truglo TFO fiber sights.
