Truglo Tritium Fiber Optic sights

I am not one to hate any one particular set of sights. Meprolights, XS 24/7, and Truglos I'm fine with any of them.

Last night though, I heard a genuine bump in the night in my field house, one that my Chow Chow standing guard outside my bedroom door also heard and we had to do a night search with my G31 and gunlight. I awoke with the bump around 2 am, and was very surprised at how the TFO's glowed. The rears are yellow and glow a bit less, which was a nice thing. They are excellent sights in the daytime and of all the sights that contain tritium, they are actually the dimmest. But they were sure bright after being asleep for so long.

Just a short story to share, great sights.

Thanks for sharing glockbuster. I am in the market for some night sights and think that I will go with the TFO's for my g26. Having a dog does help in the effort for hd. I have my gsp that helps me out.

Very welcome. Make sure you specify if you want the all green or yellow rears. My original TFO's were all green and after a rear dot went bad on me Truglo replaced them free of charge after sending them back. I asked for and was given a set with the yellow rears. I am not sorry of the choice as they provide some difference with the front sight which I always like. Excellent service and warranty from Truglo BTW.

There have been a few times when I heard something in the night, and when I opened the drawer to get my TFO-sighted G19, the sights lit up the inside of the drawer.

TFOs are my favorite night sights, by far.

Good point. I donīt think the dots by themselves are the brightest of the bunch but, they are bright enough and they are the only night sights (that I know of at least) where the full pipes that are exposed on top also light up, providing good lumens.

I have TFO's on a G19 and a G27 and love them. I like them so well that I am thinking of changing all of my Glocks to this sight.

I have TFO's on my G23 and think they're great! The combination FO and Tritium glows bright in any or no light.

I have had TFOs on my 17 and 21 for the last 6 years and love them. My G21 is my home defense weapon and I rarely open the gunvault next to my bed but any time I do they are glowing right back at me. Awesome during the daytime too.

These reviews sound pretty good. I was gonna order some tfos for my new 19 locally until a few people made them basically sound like garbage.
