ARO-TEK'S GHOST RING SIGHT SET
Ghost Ring Sights have been
available for shotguns for a few years now, highly recommended by professionals
and instructors such as Col. Jeff Cooper and Clint Smith. Any shooter from any
of this century's wars and conflicts will remember the fine peep sight provided
on the '03 Springfield, M1 Garand and M-14 and M-16 rifles used by our
infantrymen throughout the world. Now that same sight system is available for
Glock pistols from Aro-Tek, Ltd. of Pacific, WA. Phn (206) 351-2984.
I recently had Aro-Tek Ghost Ring Sights installed on my Glock Model 22. I
couldn't wait to get to the range with it and both I and my wife worked out the
small changes necessary for its use. I have always concentrated on a very
distinct sight picture, usually of the three-dot variety, with the front dot
sharp and the rear dots and target area "fuzzy," per standard training and years
of "do this and you will hit the target "from every instructor I have known.
Best use of the Aro-Tek Ghost Ring Sight will result when you put your focus
on the target and let your eye center the Aro-Glow front sight in the rear ring.
My wife Teresa noticed how much quicker the sights were to pick up when shooting
knock-down plates, hitting five for five the first time she used it. Not her
normal performance and a surprise for the both of us. Just for information, 8"
plates or an 8" ten-ring found on the NRA D-1 target just fit the rear ring of
this sight at 10 to 15 yds.
The Aro-Glow sight deserves some mention here, too. Using a fiber-optic
element of red, green, orange or yellow, the dot facing the shooter glows in the
light much the same as night sights in the dark. The element is exposed to
sunlight from the top and sides of the sight. The more UV light available,
either sunlight or other sources, the brighter it glows. This is a great
improvement over standard front sights.
With the Aro-Tek Ghost Ring you let
the eye and brain do what they do best: automatically center a dot in a ring
over the target. They work best if you go on automatic and remember to squeeze
the trigger (of course!), and give a real performance benefit to those who are
in the IPSC/USPSA game and other combat shooting sports. The shooters focus can
now go to the target and shoot at it through the sights and gun, greatly
increasing your speed of engagement and accuracy. They are available from
Aro-Tek for all Glock pistols (1911's and clones soon) for $79.00 as a complete
set and front ($29.95) and rear ($59.95) are available separately.
