    So recently I posted a thread comparing my DW CCO to my G43...ran them head-to-head in some Bill Drills to help finalize an off-duty carry piece. I noticed that the front sight on my DW CCO was a bit dim and had no white outline. All my non-competition guns have 3 dot night sights with white outlines for consistency with my duty gun (competition guns all get red fiber optic front sights).

    In running the head-to-head test, I had a difficult time picking up the front sight so decided to swap it out for a newer one. KUDOS to "605atthewheels" (George)....he mailed me a front sight from his ECO and it's perfect!

    Here is a quick pic (sorry, fuzzy from my cellphone) of the newer front sight installed....old one on the right - you can see how dim it looks compared to the newly installed one!
