    I'm wondering if anybody has tried to cut the rear notch so there would be more light on the sides of the front sight? Shot my Caracal C last Monday and I'm liking it enough to order a F Model, but I need to see more light on the sides of the front sights to shoot it at speed. I like the "dot the dot" sights as they are much like the Heinie NS in concept.

    Have either of you, or anyone else for that matter contacted Caracal about the availability of different sights? I emailed them a couple of months ago and never got a reply. I agree with both of you regarding the width of the rear sight channel. Maybe a narrower front sight would be an easier solution? Anybody seen the FO front sight that is supposedly available? Is the width the same or different?
