The Advanced Mini Sight from Shield Sights is an enclosed pistol sight with a great co-witnessing capability that works with standard height iron sights and still mounts to the popular Shield footprint.
The AMS has a small built-in rear peep sight and provides a very nice sight picture, far better than other co-witnesses setups.
In the picture above you can see the front sight inside the rear integrated peep sight. Since this is at the base of the optic window, the red dot is unobstructed. The standard rear sight is still installed on the slide in this setup. The AMS is designed so well I would remove the factory rear sight completely.
