That is cool.   And I hope not "gimmicky" cool.

I'd have to have hands on before I make a decision on it. I happen to think the standard P365 with or without a manual safety is pretty hard to beat.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

That looks very interesting. Looking forward to seeing it up close and personal.

That's an interesting development.  I was wondering who will be the first to put Meprolight's Bullseye sight on a stock gun.

I've played with it a little at SHOT and thought it was an interesting idea that seemed really fast at close ranges.

Because I am not the sharpest ball in the drawer: it is a rear ring and a front dot that must be aligned, correct? Given it is a shorter "radius", it is a far more demanding alignment, I would guess.
If the gun indexes well, it should happen pretty quickly and naturally. The windows look to be fiber optic. When something breaks or fails, I wonder what that looks like.

One downside I see with what Sig has done is by making it near flush you loose the ability to rack the action using the rear sight for one handed drills. 

I nearly bought one when I bought new sights for my XD, but ended up with traditional sights.

Sorta.  It is not quite the same thing as normal sighting radius, but you are generally correct.

The nice thing for speed is that if you see the dot, you can pull the trigger and get center of mass hits out to reasonable ranges very fast with a very low profile sight.

I really need to try it on a gun with proper holster presentation.

Wonder if it will be the same pricing, $500ish.

I ordered one of these sights last night.  I will post what I think after I have shot it a bit.

I was really skeptical of the Meprolight FT when I first saw the ads for it, but after watching a few video reviews, I'm really intrigued by it. It looks to me that despite its short size, alignment precision is comparable to a much longer sight radius. I'd be interested in trying one out to see how fast it is to acquire the "bullseye" sight picture and how it compares with conventional sights for shot precision.

As for the P365 SAS, I really like how they recessed the Mepro FT into the slide. Very slick! If I like the sight, I might give some thought to machining a pocket for it on my P365 to duplicate that setup.

Will be looking forward to hearing your impressions of the Mepro FT, Jason!
