    There are no shortage of good sights available. I personally like Ameriglo Operators and Ameriglo I-Dots. The later can be bought brand new for less than $60. My 20sf/21sf/30sf all run I-Dots

    For self defense I am partial to the XS Big Dots. They are not "range sights" however for quick aquisition of target, they are awesome.

    I have heard of the Big Dots but Never seen them but on the Internet, I might have to see if I could find someone local that uses them and see how work and all.

    I checked out the Ameriglos they seem to have great reviews.

    Maybe I'm a simpleton, but I ordered my G29SF with factory night sights. They're sturdy and bright with plenty of sight picture in daylight conditions.

    I have Meprolights on my G29SF, my G20SF and my G30.

    Good sight picture, rugged and bright.

    That's the brand I use! If they last 10 years, I am pleased to have night sights for $5 a year!

    You can do it yourself not hard at all. I have a sight pusher but it is easy to do without one. Most sights come with the front sight tool and you only need a non marring punch for the rear.

    IIRC Glock uses Meprolights as their stock night site. Good endorsement for them IMO.

    Kimber uses them too.

    I have TFO, Mepro and Trijicon on several different handguns. All work very well, within their respective designs, but I prefer the TFO with contrasting front/rear, very fast in any lighting. I like dot sights, but that's me. YMMV. If you don't like the dots, or the holographic (sailboat) sights, choose either the OEM type, or a blackout type. You can "test" your appeal toward a blackout. Just tape over the white (carefully cut with a hobby knife) and shoot some rounds. If you don't have black masking type tape (or any flat, non-reflective), use some flat black spray paint on some regular masking tape. A dry-erase marker may work, but I haven't tried it (DON'T use a Sharpie!). If you like it, go with a blackout sight. If not, go back to OEM or dots. Keep it simple, and use what works for you.

    I have a 23 with factory Trijicon, I prefer Mepro in daylight as I have them on 2 G20's and 2 G29's. Both seem the same at night. I ordered mine from Glockmeister for less than $70 and you can mix colors. Mine are all green front ,yellow rear.Buy the tool and you can do it in acouple minutes, plus make easy sight in adjustments at the range.:cool:

    I just installed Ameriglo pro I-Dot's. In my opinion, these are the best of all worlds. At least for my AGING eyes...allows for very quick acquisition in all conditions. Big front sight jumps out in bright daylight, and tritium is excellent at ight. But then again, I prefer the 2 dot sight over the 3.
