Default SDM Super Sight vs Dawson Fiber Optic?

After taking about 20 years off from pistol shooting (I've been shooting sporting clays shotguns) I bought a S&W 627, 8 shot .38 special.

At 60 years old the first thing I did was replace the gold bead font sight with a Dawson Fiber Optic. It was a huge improvement.

Then I saw the SDM Super Sight. It's literally twice as long as the Dawson, and the fiber optic is twice as big.

Man, what a difference !! Almost like when I had cataract surgery.

Any of you guys using one?

I had an SDM sight in my 625. Damn thing wouldn’t hold a fiber for very long at all. They always popped out.

I only use Dawson fiber sights.

Those manly .45 loads are hot. I'm using .38 specials from Wal-Mart

I'll third Dawson. I put a set on my G17 and they made a world of difference. Well made, and excellent customer service.

As I said, I have both. The Dawson is too small for me.

ICORE targets are big enough, the I don't need a small front sight.

Always nice when a product is everything we hoped for and more.

I have no experience with that brand of FO, but have several guns sporting DP. It’s a great company.

I have the Dawson on my Glock M19, and it works well. But on my double action only revo (s&w627) I prefer the SDM.
