    It was a toss up between the I Dot Pro's or Hackathorn, I chose the later and should have them in a few days!! :rock:

    Hope you love them as much as I do mine. I recently bought them for four guns, including my G19 and G32. They are awesome! I wish these things had been around way back when I started shooting - they would have saved me a ton of money from buying different sights! They are definite keepers.

    I have I-dots on one of my G19s (came that way) and I just put Hacks on my other G19. I really like them both.

    I have Pro Operators on my G17, I-Dot Pros on my G21SF, and Hackathorns on my G34. Theyre all great sights. You really can't go wrong with Ameriglo's!

    Picked them up today, I chose not to pay the guy the $25 fee for installing the rear sight. So I get the front sight installed easily with a tab a blue loctite, then using a brass drift and small hammer I removed the OEM rear sight. (destroying it in the process) I am now reconsidering having the rear sight installed by the dealer, $25 is not worth the slip of a brass drift on the slide finish. Yeah, I chickened out!!!!!!:embarassed:

    I have to admit that I actually just ordered a set of Truglo TFOs for my Glock 19. I have done 2 local IDPA style matches and the weather here in PA has been gloomy and rainy. I have found that in transition, dusk type lighting the Ameriglo sight loses much of its luster. I prefer to shoot with both eyes open and have found that in this transition type lighting it is very hard for me to pick up that front sight. In bright daylight and dark they are great, but this transition lighting just hasn't been good for me with these sights. I am hoping the TFOs solve that issue and I'll give you guys an update.

    I'll probably give the Hacks a try the next time around--they look like something I'd like! :supergrin:

    I like the Operator set up too, though... :cool:

    AmeriGlo is a quality product and a class act company! :thumbsup:
