    I have always had night sights on my Glocks. I really don't like the factory standard sights. I usually just order my Glock's with them, but this time I got a really good deal on a G26 with standards.

    What are some good substitues for 3 dot NS's. The 3 dot system is more important than the glow. I seen some on Brownells that only the front one was a NS and the others were normal. I was interested for sure and wanting to know some more alternatives for no more than about $60.

    Thanks guys.

    Personally, I have been converted AWAY from 3-dot after getting Warren Sevigny carry sights on my 32, and I love em. The only night sights i have ever used that my blind eyes can see and use in the dark without glasses.

    I'm really digging the TruGlo TFO sights I got for my G19 last week. They are very bright in the light because of the fiber optic part, and decently bright in the dark. You can get the rear in either green or yellow. The front is green.

    I've read some concerns about the fiber elements coming loose, but so far so good for me with about 450 rounds through with them in just a week.

    I prefer the XS Big Dot 24/7's on my Glocks.

    Fiber Optic + Night Sights is a cool combo.

    I agree, this is a very good set up.
