At my age I have problems focusing on ramp sights so I've had to steer clear of any that do not have a pinned sight (my M19 has a patridge so no issue).
FYI and Jimmyj's too.... for my "self-defense/concealed carry/utility stainless (and blue guns)..... where fast "accurate" shots inside 15 yds are more important than small groups out to 50..... I've painted the whole ramp..... with (first a white base coat and) florescent red Testers model paint..... for a fast flash sight picture.
