    hello guys

    whats the difference between fix and adjustable sights?

    kasi My G has a rear adjustable sights, so Im planning to buy Truglo TFO (anyone tried it? any feedback or comments?) and I think it only comes with fix sights, is it ok? how about accuracy with the fix?

    thanks

    an adj. sights simply give you the flexibility to adjust as needed:cool:

    the disadvantage is that, the chosen adjustment maybe jarred from time to time, eye cutter and gundog experienced this unfortunate event during level 2 ipsc matches,hehehehe

    fixed sigths, once adjusted to your satisfaction are okay, not easily jarred as adjustable ones.

    btw, my G17 has fixed mepros on them. 2 years had gone by, i have no complaints.

    Reliable in Ali Mall has a good supply of Mepros. They are priced P3-4T last time I checked. Hindi ko lang alam kung pundido na yung mga night sights nila.

    Actually, darwin is not joking. Tritium has a half life of 12 years. That means after 12 years, a tritium night sight will be half as bright as it was brand new. Reliable had mepros since 1995 when i bought a set for my g17. If what they have currently are still the same stock then the night sight will only have 1 more year before it dims.
