    Thought I would try out a set of Ameriglo's new I-DOT style sights. They are comparable to the Heinie Stright eight sights. The fit and finish is excellent, nice coal black color and they went right on with no issues. The front sight is the typical white outline green tritium dot 140x220. The rear is a single smaller and a bit subdued green tritium dot without an outline. The rear sight has a nice 90 ledge to facilitate one handed drills. The rear of the back sight has a slight upward cut to reduce glare. Overall a very nice set of sights The Trijicon name is on the sights as Ameriglo manufactures the bases and Trijicon installs the tritium. I have shot with these a couple of time so far and I find that I can aquire them a bit quicker than my three dots. I ususally prefer the three dot system, but these may have changed my mind. These may stay on my g23 duty pistol. here are a few quick pics I took. TXPO

    I ordered them directly from AmeriGlo. Great folks to deal with. Super fast shipping. These are new and they just received the front ones from trijicon. I will try and get a picture looking from front to back. They are set up really well, the back sight has a wide cut and the front is a little thinner than the standard front. This allows a wide view on both sides of the front side. They are a bit taller than standard sights. They have not caused any clearance problem with any of my holsters on or off duty. Seems most combat sights are a bit taller which aids in picking up the sight picture more efficiently. TXPO

    I have the Ameri Glos on one 19 and the Tru Glows on another, Either one seems to be better than stock, But I tend to favor the Tru Glows over the other,

    I seem to pick up on the front sight better at the range, I guess its a easier find on the gun

    Good to hear. I just bought two sets of Ameriglo's "special combination" of red/green front and black rear to replace the polymer sights that came with my two Glocks. I find that the white outline of the rear Glock sight is a bit distracting. They go on the guns in a week or so. I hope they improve my GSSF match results.

    I'm getting a set of these as well in the next week or two. Glad to hear you like them and thanks for the pictures - better than just seeing the sights on their website. I hear they may be coming out with an orange painted front for the I-dot like their "Hack" sight (GL-433 under Special Combinations).....:whistling:

    I just bought a G17 Gen4 and I really want to try these sights. I dont know if its my old age or something but I am not liking 3 dot sights lately. I hope these work for me.

    To the Op. How are they now that you have had some time on the range with them?
