Anyone have one of those new 45 HK USPs with the fiber optic front sight?

I thought I read a while back somewhere on this site - some neg comments about this version of the USP... Something about people finding the stock sights more accurate than the fiber optic front sight - something about the fiber optic being too fat or something...

Can anyone comment on this?

Looks like we share > 1 common interest: FN (over at your board) and HK. I have XS big dots on my 45 USP but I haven't shot it yet. However, I have shot the same sights on my Glock 32 and I'm very pleased with the results. For me, they present a very fast and accurate sight picture within reasonable defensive situations.

The front sight on the XS is quite a bit larger than the stock post and in an pure accuracy shoot out, the stock sight would probably prevail due to the smaller FSP profile. But then again, I didn't buy the HK or Glock to shoot MOA at targets out to 75 yards :)

Well, I tried XS sights on a 1911 before, and I hated them. I don't think the fiber optic front sight is as large as the XS sights, though...

And, glad ya like the FN Forum :)
