    Does anyone know if it's possible to purchase the TFO front sight only? I've looked at Glockparts, Glockworld, MidwayUSA and Opticsplanet, but it seems they're only sold as a set.

    If I have to buy the set, that's fine, but I just want to try using the front only first.

    Thunderbolt56 you might check out AmerGlo if I remember right they have front night sights available.

    I know. I've already got this one and like it, but figured I'd like to see a direct side by side comparison.

    I looked into this back in 2006, for my then new 3rd Gen G17...

    What inspired me was the SIG Sauer Equinox, which has the sweet set-up of a TFO front sight, with a matte-black, markerless rear sight, which has the usual two tritium lamps. The result is a great daytime sight picture, with that front FO really popping in that black rear sight notch, and the familiar three glowing markers for nighttime use. Very cool! :cool:

    What I found is that you can special-order a replacement TruGlo TFO front sight through Brownells or Cabela's, but it will cost you more than the best price you can find on the net for the complete TFO set. :upeyes:

    Also, at that time, TFOs were fraught with problems--more so than any other sight brand discussed here--and I decided it probably wasn't worth the possible aggravation... :sigh:

    I ended up going with Dawson Precision target sights from Custom Glock Racing, and I like them a lot! :thumbsup:

    Definitely do look into AmeriGlo! Their Operator sights, as well as Thunderbolt56's suggestion, are a excellent alternatives! ;)

    Thunderbolt56 I'm still waiting to order a set of those sights for my new Glock. I called and they told me a couple weeks, they hand do each one of those. Sorry for my confusion thought you just wanted a single front night sight...Bru
