ah can't answer for everybody but we members that live close to one another hang out and drink beer and eat pizza a lot!Is that how it is around here? Of course I googled first, how do you think I found this forum? Well if questions aren't welcome then what good is a forum?
Thanks so much, that's exactly what I was looking for. Any chance you'll look at making some front dot over rear bar type sights in the future? I have come across your website and I love that SOMEBODY is making aftermarket stuff for Taurus' lol. May look into getting a steel guide rod for the TH9C if you come out with one for that model too. Thanks again!The dovetail is a Taurus version of a Novak dovetail. It doesn't match other versions. I don't know what arrangement Taurus and Novak had on them. We do have some night sights and almost have some fiber optic sights. I was at the shop making them a week ago, and they are almost done. They were meant to be out months ago. The dovetails do have significant variation, and fitting can take some patience. Thanks.
I don't know. So far TH series stuff isn't moving very quickly. Sights are expensive to make. When they have to be made in small batches, they are even more expensive. With tritium night sights, we don't want our stock getting old, so we can't make them efficiently unless we can make a bunch of them. The night sights we have we actually had Novak do, and they are still very difficult to fit. And, they understand that dovetail really well since they came up with it. Taurus is known among the sight manufacturers as having quite a bit of variation in their fit. This is one of the challenges. With fiber optic sights, it isn't such a big deal since they don't really have a shelf life and are somewhat less expensive although small batches still are much more costly than if we can run (sell) more. So it seems more likely when we do more that they would be a blacked out rear (u-channel or otherwise) with some front options as they are more popular than the bar-dot type.Thanks so much, that's exactly what I was looking for.

So I got an $8 florescent orange paint pen on Amazon and painted the front blade edge (leaving the white dot of course) and just that easy mod is a big improvement in picking up the front sight and not losing focus to the read sights etc.
I filed down the front site blade to a height of .180" on my TH9 (full size). This is how I learned what sight height was needed. Now the dots are lined-up when the tops of the sights are lined-up. With a 'center hold' the rounds fall right under the front dot.I guess I got lucky. My TH9c is spot on with 115 grain bullets at +P velocities and shoots ball ammo well, also. If it shot low, I'd break out the file for the front site.
Ahh, Fingernail polish is cheaper!
just curious why you would leave the front white dot though?
personal like I guess but if the orange is easier to see and pick up why the white dot?
after all in a self defense scenario you just trying to find the front blade anyway.
shoot I don't blame you for using that I mean 180 rounds at 10 yards through a 1 inch circle--color me impressed!Well the dot is indented anyway so it wasn't difficult to leave the dot, and as you said in self defense you're just trying to pick up the blade, but I also want to line up the dots at the range. I was originally going to mask off the front blade and just do an orange circle around the front dot, kinda like some of the TruGlo sights etc. but just went with the whole front blade. I guess I got lucky too cause when I line up the dots the POI seems to be right on top of the blade. First time out to the range with this thing was the first time I'd shot in almost 20 years, put 200 rounds into a target at 10yrds and 90% of them went right through a 1inch whole in the middle ring so I can't argue with that, lol.

Yeah, I was pretty impressed myself, like I said, I hadn't shot in almost 20 years. I mean, I was taking my time, no fast shooting, but still pretty good. I don't know how much my archery experience transfers over or if it was just beginners luck or maybe I finally found something I'm talented at, lol, who knows. Believe me I'm not trying to brag or say I'm some hot shot, I was as surprised as anyone with that result, lol.shoot I don't blame you for using that I mean 180 rounds at 10 yards through a 1 inch circle--color me impressed!
I can't do that with my Tanfoglio Elite Matches or my CZ Shadow -2.
