    Big Dot sight for 442

    As an old timer i seem to go through phases as it relates to various firearms. A "gun nut" has been used to define me on more than one occasion. You too I bet.

    Anyway, being on this Forum has refired my gun fervor, but as a forced retiree money has to be watched closely. So, rather than go on a gun buying spree, i decided to spruce up what i have already for a custom look and feel. I have a nice clean S&W 442. i have a set of "FBI" wood grips coming for it. I ran across a story in a gun mag that showed a snub with a "Big Dot" front sight. Seemed like a good idea for older eyeballs. Has anyone had any experience with the dot? If so, lemmeknow and thanks!

    XS Dot Tritium Night Sights

    I have a M&P 340 that comes standard with XS Dot Standard sized sights. I like them a great deal.
    They can be retrofitted to X42s but I think XS on their website states that they must be installed by a "trained professional. I think you have to grind the blade sight down substantially to fit the dot.

    You might like trying laser grips for point shooting. I don't find snubs target revolvers and although at 10-50 feet the sight can work to attain some ok groups.
    For personal defense I would rather be profficient at point shots in a 10 inch COM a laser can provide that training "feel" for the time when you need to point and shoot w/o them.
    Goal 5 rounds, five seconds at 5 yards.

    Essentially it would look something like this upon completion.

    I have a Colt Defender with XS Bigdots and once I got used to them they work great. Looked at some on a Ruger LCR this weekend and I think if I got a snub nose ,it would have to have them.
