February 24, 2008
While DefenseReview was at SHOT Show 2008, Alec Wolf, President of GlockWORX, showed us a cool DocterSight a.k.a. Docter Sight setup he performed on a Glock 19 (G19) pistol, where the DocterSight is embedded into the rear of the pistol’s slide (replacement Glock 19 slide made by Caspian Arms Ltd). Alec told us that this sight setup allows for extremely fast and accurate multiple target engagement (MTE) at combat distances. We believe the Docter Sight model GlockWORX is using is the DocterSight II Plus a.k.a. Docter Sight II Plus (unconfirmed/unverified). Also, the barrel appeared to be either a KKM Precision or Bar-Sto Precision Machine replacement Glock 19 barrel (we forgot to ask). Both the KKM and Bar-Sto barrels have fully-supported chambers. We’ll try to confirm exactly what brand of barrel it was.
GlockWORX can perform lots of cool custom modifications to your factory Glock pistol. Two GlockWORX custom modifications that Defense Review previously saw and examined were…
performed on Mr. Wolf’s personal competition Glock. Mr. Wolf resurfaced the pistol’s grip for enhanced grip on the weapon during fast multiple-shot strings during competition and replaced the standard Glock trigger with a proprietary GlockWORX drop-in light trigger kit. I used this pistol during an impromptu IPSC-style pistol class that was conducted for us in April 2007 by National Tactical 3-Gun champion shooter Taran Butler, and we really liked it (GlockWorx custom Glock pistol with modified grip and drop-in trigger unit).
We also enjoyed the pistol class, and highly recommend Taran Butler as a technical shooting skills instructor for pistol, rifle and shotgun. Military Special Operations and general infantry personnel, law enforcement SWAT operators and 1st Responders, PSD/Security Operators, and civilian tactical and competitive shooters can all benefit from Mr. Butler’s shooting instruction services.
We highly recommend that you enlist Taran Butler’s shooting instruction services, and you can do so through DefenseReview. Just email us at defrev at gmail dot com to set up a pistol, rifle, or shotgun class (or 3-Gun Tactical class) with Taran Butler for your team/unit (Mil/LE) or group (civilian).
Just FYI, Mr. Butler is currently the best 3-Gun tactical shooter in the world, and has proven himself to be the best 3-Gun Tactical shooter in the world for the last 4-5 years . As it happens, Mr. Wolf was with Mr. Butler when he showed us his DocterSighted Glock at the show (SHOT Show 2008).
Now, getting back to the Glock 19 pistol with Docter Sight Alec showed us at the show, the slide had compensator holes cut into it, which Defense Review doesn’t like on a tactical/combat pistol. We don’t like compensator holes cut into the slide on combat guns for a number of reasons: 1) They’re unnecessary on a combat/tactical 9mm, .40 S&W, or .45 ACP pistol, since 9mm, 40 S&W, and .45ACP pistols already exhibit low-to-moderate recoil, and should therefore already be adequately controllable for any moderately proficient shooter. 2) They reduce the muzzle velocity of the bullet. 3) They direct hot gases upwards from the gun and can temporarily blind the shooter or negatively impact the shooter’s vision during nighttime or low-light conditions. 4) If you have to shoot near someone’s face, the escaping hot gases can burn that person–for instance, if you’re in a car and have to shoot past the passenger’s or driver’s face.

Docter Sight II Plus Info and Specs (Company/Product Literature):
The revolutionary DOCTER® Sight II Plus, absolutely the smallest "tubeless sight" available.
* tough and splash proof or waterproof
* automatic electronic brightness regulation
* compact and lightweight
* exact windage and elevation adjustment mechanism
* power saving mode
* easy mounting
The DOCTER® Sight II Plus is small 46 x 25.4 x 23.7mm and light weight 25g. The DOCTER® Sight II Plus is designed to be a high quality, extremely rugged precision DOT Sight that is adaptable to any firearm. The DOCTER® Sight II Plus is extremley rugged and shock proof, designed to withstand 1000 G’s of recoil. The DOCTER® Sight II Plus is designed to withstand the elements and is offered in two levels of Water resistance; the sporting model is splash proof and the Military / Law Enforcement model is designed to be Waterproof.
Precision engineered using anodized Aluminum for the main body, blackened Stainless Steel for the optical lens housing, chrome plated brass for the windage, elevation adjustment and locking screws and gold plated electrical contacts.
The DOCTER® Sight II Plus utilizes two highly polished, optical quality glass lenses sandwiched together and solidly set in the frame of the sight. A specially formulated DOCTER multi-coating is applied between the lenses, which protects the coating from scratches and abrasions. This coating assures a bright, clear sight picture, greatly reduces distracting, over-the-shoulder glare on the lenses, and eliminates parallax out to 40 yards.
Windage and elevation adjustments are made through the use of two unobtrusive screws located on the frame of the sight. The settings then are locked solidly in place with two set screws, assuring that they do not "shoot loose" during recoil of even the largest handgun calibers. A generous adjustment range: Elevation 720cm/100m, Windage 540cm/100m with an adjustment value of 1.0 MOA 3cm/100m facilitates mounting and sight-in adjustments.
For Handgun, Rifles or Shotguns
While the DOCTER® Sight II Plus is perfect for all types of handguns, it is also an excellent choice for quick handling, relatively short-range rifles and carbines where shots will be within 150 meters. The shooter does not need to align the rear sight, front sight and the target. He simply places the red dot on the target and fires. Mounted on shotguns, the DOCTER® Sight II Plus is a superb choice for deer or turkey hunting guns.
The Ideal CQB Sight
The DOCTER® Sight II Plus is well suited for Law Enforcement and Military applications as a primary CQB sight. For close quarters engagements the DOCTER® Sight II Plus provides one of the fastest target acquisition sights available. The DOCTER® Sight II Plus is used with both eyes open. Custom mounts are available to meet the demanding requirements of Law Enforcement and Military applications.
Overall Dimensions: 46mm L by 25.4mm W by 23.7mm H. Weight: 25 grams.
Operating and Storage Temperatures: Fully functional in a temperature range from -25ºC to +40ºc. The sight can be stored in temperatures ranging from -40ºC to 70ºC.
Shockproof to withstand 1000g recoil force.
Sporting model 3.5 MOA (3.5cm) DOT @ 100 meters

The optical system of the DOCTER® Sight II Plus consisting of two polished glass lenses helps to avoid parallax errors.
*The DOCTER® Sight II Plus has been adjusted for 40 meters of parallax free distance. The cleverly devised two-component optics made of glass deliver a brilliant image and ensure perfect target acquisition.
Automatic Brightness Adjustment
* An integrated brightness sensor automatically adjusts the illumination of the aiming Dot to the environment. The sensor automatically adjusts the intensity of the sight’s Dot so that the Dot does not flare in the darkness and, is at the perfect illumination level in darkness, in low light, in daylight and in bright sunshine.
Sound and Sturdy
Electronic and mechanical components of the DOCTER® Sight II Plus are designed to be splash-proof. Waterproof on the LE/Military models. High-quality material such as stainless steel and high strength hardened aluminum alloy is used for manufacturing the mechanical parts.
The small overall height of the DOCTER® Sight II Plus enables the sighting line and the bore of the barrel to lie closely together, thus reaching particularly high accuracy of aim at different distances. The large lens segment and the cleverly designed narrow frame facilitate an error-free and relaxed aiming.
For adjusting height and lateral position the position of the sight mark this can be sensitively adjusted backlash-free by means of set spindles with end stops. The wide square adjustment area of 720 cm in height at 100 m is guaranteed.
Long Rifle and Small Arms
The use with small arms enables an extremely quick shot sequence because the sight can be attached far more at the rear as compared with conventional reflecting sights. The benefit of being able to take aim with the two eyes open becomes particularly evident in sports or stalking game – the large real visual field creates reserves of reaction speed and sureness of aim.
Different mounting plates, specially manufactured for each of the different firearm types, enable a large range of applications for the DOCTER® Sight II Plus on any long rifle, shotgun or handgun as well as special application systems such as the ARWEN Less Lethal System.
Custom manufactured "Tandem" mounts are available for optical sights such as the Trijicon ACOG family of sights.
