    I've been running Trijicon's on various guns for years. They work OK. But on Glockmeister's website I see something called TruGlo TFO. Are they better? I need good sites in all light conditions because age is creeping up on me.:crying:

    What's the going rage? Opinions.

    I think you can't beat the trijicons tbh. I don't care at all for the big dot sights and all that new stuff but to each their own. I love the Triji's on my G.20.

    I have Meprolights on half of my Glocks, I went night shooting with a group of friends, One buddy had Trijicons on his Sig 229. My Meps on my Glocks were twice as bright as my Buddies Sig 229,

    I do not know how fresh his sights were I know he just had them installed and said he was going to look more into the Meps, I am sure this is a Ford and Chevy argument, I am sure either are fine, Mine are close to 10 years now and are about ready for replacing,

    Oh I forgot to add Truglow has a sight it is very bright but really big, I tried it but removed them right away.

    I love my trijicons, I don't think any of the big name companies ( ameriglo, meps, or Glock night sights) would fail you though. Good luck with your choice.

    I had a set of the Truglo TFO's and could not keep the front site tight. It was constantly getting loose from shooting. I had the shop where I got them tighten them twice and then I did it, used blue Loc-Tite and let it dry 24hrs and it still came loose.
    They were good sites just the front one kept getting loose, traded them for Trijicon's.

    I almost bought some TFOs for my G29, but didn't. I kept hearing about the front sight coming loose on 9mm and .40S&W guns. I bet that sucker would fly off in a hurry on a G20. I wouldn't use them.

    Doesn't Kimber use mepro sites on their 1911s? I've had several of them and they seemed plenty bright I guess.:dunno:

    Both my G20 and G29 run the fixed Trijicons.

    I had a set of TFO's and the front sight went dead after a year and a half. Mepro and Ameriglo for me from now on.

    I prefer the Meprolight or factory Glock night sights. The dimensions of the front blade and rear sight channel vary depending on mfg. The Meprolight measure .160" wide front sight, and .140" wide rear sight channel, same as a stock Glock plastic sight. The Ameriglow front sight I have measures .125" wide, and I don't have a set of Trijicon to measure. I remember the front thickness and rear channel opening both too narrow on my former G27 with Trijicons.

    The Trijicon HD and Ameriglow equivalent are very easy to pick up, and might be worth looking into.
