Strike Industries Center Axis Targeting (CAT) Sights

    Strike Industries has introduced a rather unusual handgun sight called CAT (Center Axis Targeting) Sight. It is an auxiliary aiming device designed to aid faster sight picture acquisition in dark or low light conditions. This sight is supposed to be a rough but quick aiming measure.

    As you can see in the images, CAT Sight is mounted right behind the front sight of the handgun. That makes it (at least SI says so) to be universal to nearly any firearm. Which is probably the case unless you have narrow slide top geometry or compensator ports cut on top of the slide.

    The CAT Sight is made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). It is available through Strike Industry’s website at MSRP of $13.95. I suppose this sight simply sticks to the slide using the provided rectangular stickers (see the image below).

    It is pretty hard to form an opinion concerning this product without trying and testing it. This is a really unusual system, to say the least, so unless you try it you can’t really have a solid opinion on it. It will probably feel awkward at first and will need some time and practice to get used to.

    I think it may work as a replacement for a shotgun bead sight as well.
