Our GRIP FORCE RTS Rear Sights are .244" High from the top of the slide to the top of the sight face, and are compatible with front sights from .215" through .245" High.

There are two different U notch widths available for the GRIP FORCE RTS, .156" Wide and .146" Wide.

Through extensive testing and evaluation, GRIP FORCE has designed the U notch widths on our rear sights to be compatible with the most common width front sights that are currently available on the market.

Our .156" Wide U notch (2 Dot Tritium and Plain) rear sights were specifically designed to be used with the high visibility front sights that are currently offered by Trijicon and AmeriGlo. The shooter's Speed and Accuracy are optimized when our RTS (.156" Wide U notch) is used with the OEM Trijicon HD and AmeriGlo Pro-Glo front sights. The .156" U notch width offers the best sight picture and balance of light when used with those specific front sights widths (Trijicon HD .144" Wide), (AmeriGlo Pro-Glo .140" Wide).         

Our .146" Wide U notch sights are compatible with any tritium sight that is .125" Wide, or any fiber optic sight that is .125", .115", or .105" Wide. Personal preference of the shooter will dictate which front sight width is chosen. Through the enhanced design of our angled rear sight face, combined with our .146" Wide U notch, we have experienced excellent Speed and Accuracy results with all three of those fiber optic front sight widths.
  

*We highly recommend the use of a Dawson Precision Fiber Optic front sight. They are excellent quality and they offer a wide variety of different height and width front sights.


Dawson Precision Fiber Optic Front Sight 019-024    


Trijicon and AmeriGlo are producing two new high visibility front sights. The new Trijicon HD XR front sight is reportedly going to be .122" Wide, and the new AmeriGlo "FBI Contract Submission" front sight is going to be .125" Wide. Both will still have the high visibility neon orange or green ring on them. 

Our .146" Wide U notch (2 Dot Tritium and Plain) rear sights were specifically designed to be used with these new thinner, high visibility front sights that are being produced by Trijicon and AmeriGlo. As with our .156” U notch sights, the shooter's Speed and Accuracy are optimized when our RTS (.146" Wide U notch) is used with the Trijicon HD XR and AmeriGlo "FBI Contract Submission" front sights. The .146" U notch width offers the best sight picture and balance of light when used with those specific thinner front sights widths (Trijicon HD XR .122" Wide), (AmeriGlo "FBI Contract Submission" .125" Wide).            


 

Zeroing:     Point of Aim/Point of Impact
  

Point of aim/point of impact may vary due to weapon, caliber, ammunition, sight height, and sight radius.

Not all pistols, shooters or ammunition impacts in the same place. Pistols vary, in that even two different versions of the same model may not shoot to the same point of impact.

Ammunition and the individual shooting add an additional variable to where a pistol could impact.

GRIP FORCE PRODUCTS recommends the following front sight heights:

.215" High front side for 15 yard POA/POI using 115 grain and 124 grain ammunition.

.230" High front sight for 25 yard POA/POI using 115 grain and 124 grain ammunition.

For those end users shooting 147 grain ammunition, a slightly higher front sight is recommended. Depending on weapon and ammunition, that height can be .225", .230", .235", .240", or .245" Tall. You will have to test your specific duty or match ammunition in order to find the proper front sight/rear sight combination for your desired zeroing distance.


Important!
   

After installation and prior to Zeroing your pistol with GRIP FORCE RTS:

Verify that the front sight is properly installed and secure on the slide. Push or tap ONLY on the base of the rear sight dovetail. Do not try to adjust a properly installed front sight blade or damage WILL result.

Proceed to range for test firing. Before making any sight adjustment, verify the pistol/shooter/ammunition is holding a consistent grouping.

For elevation changes, consider installing a different height front sight to adjust point of impact:

If you desire your shot group to move upwards, install a shorter front sight blade. This will cause you to raise the muzzle end of the pistol to properly align the tops of the front and rear sights, resulting in your point of impact moving up.

If you wish for your shot group to move down, install a taller front sight. This will cause you to lower the muzzle end of the pistol to properly align the tops of the front and rear sights, resulting in your point of impact moving down.

For windage adjustment, tap the dovetail of the rear sight in the direction that you want your shot group to move in.

Note: It does not take much movement to make a difference in sight adjustments. Shoot multiple groupings to make sure you are shooting at the same point of impact. Make corrections accordingly.

Once your sights are adjusted to your liking, use a fine tip marker (with the color of your choice), and put two small witness marks near the front of the sight body. Part of the mark should be made onto the top of your slide, and the other part of the mark on the two “sight zero” dimples that are on the top front edge of the sight body. Periodically check sights to make sure adjustment stays tight and there is no movement of the front or rear.
