Best Glock Night Sights?

I am looking for a set of night sights for my Gen 4 27. I have trijicon's on my 23 but thought I would try to do some research. The TRUGLO TFO's seem to be pretty sweet but didn't want to jump on any without some recommendations.

I have the Green Truglo TFO sights on both my Glock 23 and Glock 27. I haven't had any issues with them and they are holding up very well. I got them from B o t a c h T a c t i c a l for a reasonable price.

I have Trijicons and Tru Glo and am pretty happy with both...Tru Glos are a bit cheaper

I've shot glocks with the factory night sights, big dots, and the TFO's. The TFO's are my favorite. The big dots were the brightest at night, the factory and TFOs were similar in brightness, but for daytime the TFO's really made up for it.

I got the glock night sights. They're very bright and nice and white during the day.

I know they are meprolights but I was told they have the tennifer coating on the sights themselves. True?

I have installed Trijicon, Ameriglo, and Meprolight and I like them in that order.

I'm a huge fan of Ameriglo. I have the lime green (green tritium) pro glo front sight & the pro operator (yellow tritium) rear sight on both my Glocks. Perfect setup for me.

I had a set on my PX4. Great CQC sights, but very frustrating at the range if you want to try for any kind of accuracy.

I shoot warren precision sights. Personal preference but I cannot stand 3-dot sights. I'm a front sight shooter, and the two dots on the rear do nothing but distract my follow thru and slow my target aqusition down. Warren was the only company that offered a solid rear with a tritium front.

Hiene also has a good set of 2-dot night sights. The rear sight has a smaller slightly duller dot than the front.

Might I ask what caused you to go with the one brand that got “meh” reviews here? Were you already entertaining the Big dots?

Yea I was considering them on the 27 due to self defense. If it was something I shot targets with more I would probably go with something different. At least that's where I'm with it now I haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet

I bought my first glock last week (26) and I have been contemplating the same thing. I have been leaning towards the TFO's mainly because I am a shot gun shooter first so I am more comfortable with the TFO style set up from my shotgun. Has anyone had any draw issues with the TFO's being slightly bigger than the stock sights? This will be my CCW so I want to make sure they aren't going to snag anywhere. Does the holster make a difference with the TFO sights?

You may want a bigger sight channel in your holster, that's all I'd think would matter. However, those are alot of sight for such a small gun. Also, I'd never put FO sights on a carry gun. I've seen them fly out at the range. More than once. They're easy to replace - because they fly out. It's lame, because someone turned your sight off. Never seen them lose a tritium vial though.

I have heinie's. I like em, but I looked at about a dozen different sights before I settled on these. A sight preference is very individual.

This is my carry gun, and I use it for IDPA. These sights do well for IDPA, I imagine they'd work for CCW as well. When I slow down to take the shots, I do fairly well. It's not the gun, that's for sure.
