New night sights for all my glocks

Hello guys, I have a G17, a G19 and a G26, all gen 4. I want to install on them the same night sights (since I use the all 3 for defense purpouses).

In the classic line, I was watching the OEM Night sights, the meprolight and the trijicon.

In the other hand, I was watching a most modern set up, especifically the ameriglo idot pro and the trijicons hd.

What do you think? What sights would you choose to all your glocks?

You can suggest other sights, maybe I loose someone in my search.

Thanks a lot.

I like the three dot Trijicons or XS Big Dots.

I really like the truglo tfo's. I have them on my shield and my g23. Very good glow in lo light or no light conditions. And not bad priced.

I use aimline sights. http://aimline.com/


No need for expensive nigh sights unless you can get your intruder to pause for a few seconds while you get your slights aligned. Yeah, right. $75 including shipping.

I tried the Truglo TFO, but they doesn't work for me. I don't like the lack of an edge in order to solve malfunctions with one hand, and I see them very fragile. I want something tough.

I have trijicon, meprolight, and truglo (not fiber optic).

The truglo are 2/3 the price of the others and just as well made. For my money I'll be putting them on the rest of my defensive handguns.

I have Trijican HD's on my XD45,and like them a lot. That said, XS big dots are easily my favorite sight on a defensive pistol. My 26 is fitted with Big Dots and my new 23 will be next week. That big white dot is very fast to acquire, and the wide rear notch makes the fact that, I'm right handed and left eye dominant a complete non issue.

New night sights for all my glocks

Here's a thread I just posted comparing the standard Trijicons and Ameriglo Hackathorns if that helps.

http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1534657

Lots of choices out there.

Hi, these sights look interesting. What color set up did you choose? And another question: they glow in the dark? As far I can see, they don't have tritium inserts.

Glock-brand OEM Tritium sights satisfy MY shooting needs perfectly. They are corrosion-resistant, durable, and bright. The only drawback voiced by some shooters is that the sight picture doesn't give you too much visibility on either side of the front sight (in other words, either the rear notch needs to be wider, or the front narrower). To understand this concept, you need to compare Glock OEM to something like the AmeriGlo CAP (which allows for more visibility within the sight picure). I like the AmeriGlo sights on my G19, but am just as happy with the OEM tritium setup on my G26. For me, it's not a big deal, and the downrange difference is negligible. "Your mileage may vary".

Actually, my Glock "guilty pleasure" is the steel Glock OEM rear (white outline) combined with the Glock tritium front. I run this on my Gen1 G17, and prefer it to all other set-ups. The white outline is perfect for daylight shooting, and the tritium front covers low-or-no light very well.

I have these on all my Glocks. What really stands out is the front sight no problem in day or night time. Ameriglo also has great customer service.

The info below is all about the sights I use. Got this info from one of the glock forums.

I run the Ameriglo GL-212-GR-C ProGlo Green front (http://www.ameriglo.net/catalog/sigh...s/front-sights) sight with the GL-229-OP-R Pro Operator Yellow rear (http://www.ameriglo.net/catalog/sigh...ts/rear-sights). Got one set to try on the G26 and liked them so much I didn't even carry my other Glocks until I ordered the same for them. LOVE these sights.

The green front just jumps right in your face and the Pro Operator rears don't have the white outline around the vials so in daylight you don't even notice them, looks like a plain black sight. The front comes in orange too (both glow green at night) but I didn't want to be used to seeing a different color front sight depending on the lighting conditions.

The green front with the yellow rear makes for a good contrast at night too.

I have had good service for a few years now from TFOs and from one set of Big Dots.

I have the I dot pros on my 19 and I am going to order a set for my 26 on Monday. They have been great for me and would highly recommend them.

As I've aged with declining vision, I have installed XS Big Dot sights on all my carry Glocks. I find no other sights as easy to get on target as the Big Dots. Of course they are not meant for target shooting.

One style NS is not enough

NS are all about personal preference.
You need to shoot with them and choose for yourself.
Had Ameriglo I-Dot Pros on my Talo EXO G27.
They are sweet.
But I'm a perfectionist and switched to XS 24/7 Express Big Dots.
They are not target sights.
But for CQC they are hard to beat.

I run Big Dots on most of my handguns.
But went with Heinie Tactical SlantPro QWIK Straight on my HK45CT.
And adjustable Meps on my HK USPT45.

I'm particular about sights and triggers.

After seeing the Ameriglo I-Dot Pro (GL-201) sights on Talo guns in the shop, I put a set on my 34 and fell in love with them. Subsequently bought a Talo 27 for EDC with them installed and plan to put them on my 22 and 23.

I have Trijicon on the 27 and I like them

However

Glock night sights, $57 for each pistol, installed at Glock, not a bad deal IMO.
