Ameriglo has really shown themselves to be innovators in the realm of handgun sights. They have been able to create unique and functional sights of their own design and from designs developed by some of the biggest names in training. Their newest collaboration is with Dave Spaulding, designer of the CAP (Combat Applications Pistol) Sights.
The CAP Sights offer some very unique features. The most obvious feature is the heavy use of highly visible colors. Nearly the entire front sight is covered in either fluorescent green or orange. The green option is actually glow in the dark paint. This front sight is paired with a rear sight that has a horizontal bar of the same high viability color located directly under the rear sight notch. This configuration is designed to allow the shooter to quickly align the high viability colors which aligns the sights. The front sight is further enhanced with a tritium vial for low and no light situations (there is no tritium in the rear sight).
While other sights seem to be getting taller and taller, the CAP sights are going the other direction. They sit very low so that they can be close to the bore and low profile.
Todd Green has already put several rounds through these and shared some thoughts on his blog. They look very, very promising.

Hmmm… I almost purchased a set of tritium Ameriglo sights for a Ruger SR9 back at Christmas time… just didn’t get around to it… may have to wait and see…

I just installed a set of these on a Glock today for a costumer. I really like this setup. The fluorescent green is easy to pick up.
