    Thinking of getting "Truglo Tritum Night Sights" for my G33. Looking for feedback from anyone who has them.

    Thanks all.

    Aging eyes here also. I like them. My oldest set is well past a year and a half on a G26 that has had more than thousand rounds through it since the sights were installed and is carried a couple times a week, another on a gun carried daily during the week. Both are fine.

    I have them, when your outside they are so bright you would think they have electrical power lighting them up,

    From the muzzle end they are invisible. I plan on putting them on all of my guns . I just wish the front sight was slightly narrower

    The down side is that they are as delicate as a flower for CCW. The tubes can & do break easily and there is NO guarantee for this. For CCW you want something a little more rugged.

    My last 2 sets of night sights have been TruGlo TFO. Very bright in the day.

    You only get the sights. No tool.

    I have TFOs on 5 or 6 Glocks, including every Glock I carry. From a brightness standpoint, day or night, they can't be beat.

    From a QC standpoint, they are all over the place. The finish can instantly wear off. Some slide into the dovetail while others are almost impossible to fit.

    TFOs here too. Never had an issue, and I use them for IDPA and carry. I have heard some talk about them being fragile, but have not experienced that myself at all.

    I run them on my EDC Glock 19 and they've made it well over 2k rounds now. I love them. I really think you can't beat their brightness day or night. I'd buy another set in a heart beat.

    I put TFO's on nearly all my pistols. The first ones I got was over 3 years ago. Put them on a Sig P226 and have used them weekly for IDPA and they are still going. My grandson has them on the Model 17 and 34 and loves them.

    They worked equally well for old eyes or young and inside or outside.

    I put them on a G17 and a G23 and loved them. I used the yellow front/green rear and like the contrast. Note that they might affect the fit into your (kydex) holster because the front sight is considerably longer than the standard.

    As others have said during the day, the FO makes them very bright. They do stick up on the slide higher than factory, and the front sight is pretty thick which makes it harder for super fast sight acquisition.

    Just so you can get an idea, here are bright sights on my G23 in daylight. They don't offer the red/green in Nights Sights or I would have gotten them.

    TFOs are great for picking up the gun's sight picture, nice and bright. But the tubes--especially the front one--are still prone to premature failure. Over time (1500-2000 rounds or so), don't be surprised if the front FO tube falls off the mount, often disappearing into oblivion...or well into the shooting lane. Just happened to another customer on his G22.

    Aging eyes here too. I put them on my 36 a couple of years ago and most recently on my 30. They wink at me from a dark closet too!

    I haven't had any issues with breakage. The 36 probably has the most rounds through it. Maybe 1,500-2,000. I haven't dropped it.....yet.

    Well I'm a fixin to find out. Ordered a set for my G30 just this week. I'm like some of the rest of you and have 'old eye syndrome' :)

    I'll keep you posted on how they work out.

    I put a drop of clear epoxy on each rod to help them survive any abuse.

    G22 for house gun has had no issues.

    G19 been to half dozen matches with usual bumps and bangs showing no problems.

    Really helps 71yo eyes.

    YMMV

    Good Luck
