XS Sights Installed On My LCR

As most everyone knows, the front sight on the LCR is invisible to the human eye. Although it is an occasional carry pistol and not a range toy I had to add sights I could actually see. I chose XS standard dot sights over fiber optics because of the Tritium insert that shows up in low light. Easy install.

That's a big improvement over the little white stripe!

That looks nice.

Did it change the POI vs POA much?

Exactly what I have. Good choice!

Very little. The instructions tell you how to aim using it.

(sorry to the OP for jumping in)

I've considered one of these. When I started looking at LCR, it had the plain black sight that was only good at high noon, unless you painted it. When I took a second look, I found (and bought) my LCRx because the factory wisely put a white stripe on that same sight. I would think the XS would be a valuable addition, over all. I believe it was also an option with Ruger, as well.

I have the LCR in the 22 and 357. On the 357 I have the XS sight, on the 22 I have placed a dab of "white out" on it.

The XS is cooler looking but I can see the white out very good.

You do have to know how the sights impacts the point of aim. I learned that aligning the center of the dot with the top of the rear sight on a bench rest gives me a good 2"-3" grouping at 7 yards.

Using IDPA scenarios I drew from the LCR my holster, fired two rounds, holstered, drew again, fired two rounds to simulate a self defense situation. It was point and shoot at 5 yards by just sighting the big white dot on the chest of the silhouette. I would hit the target within 3"-3 1/2" of that point of aim, which for me is acceptable in a threat situation. Bottom line - I can finally see what I am shooting at and that's a good thing.

I replaced my LCRx front sight with a green HI VIZ one, makes a world of difference.

Nice sight.

I installed a green TruGlo on the wifes LCR. Which, at that time, was about all that was available. She likes it.

Ur right. The factory sight left alot to be desired.
