Dave asked a great question that I have never thought about addressing on the blog concerning holster fit issues when using Big Dot’s on a Ruger SP101.  Our experience has been that this isn’t an issue.  While they are a big front sight, they are not so big as to cause holster fit issues in most cases.  Since we started doing the conversion several years ago, we haven’t had anyone inform us of an issue.

In fact, we install almost as many of these sights on Glocks as we do the SP 101’s, and the experience has been the same.  They seem to work out just fine.

I would like to hear from some of you on this subject.  If you have been using Big Dots on your SP 101’s and have good holster that works for you, post it in the comments.  Also, if you are aware of any holsters not suited for this combo, let us know that as well.
