    Is there really a significant difference between these?? And, if so, which ones do you favor?

    Thanks!

    I just bought a G30 - Gen 3 with faded (or dead) Glock night sights, It's an older pistol w/o the molded-in rail.
    I'm replacing these faded sights with TruGlo TFO sights. The fiber optic part really lights up in the sun and they glow well at night.
    I have green front and yellow rear on 2 pistols and green/green on 2 others,
    If I had to pick from just those 3, I'd go for the Glock Sights.

    Of those choices, I like the Ameriglo. They have a great website with many different styles. The I Dot is good if you like front and rear night sights, but I like the Hackathorn with the wide notch blacked out rear.

    IMG_20160517_110645_001~2.jpg I like the Ameriglo Pro I-Dots in orange.
    Easy to pick up the orange up front in daylight, and just stack the two glowing dots on top of each other in low light.
    I find these quicker and easier to shoot than the typical three dots in a row. YMMV.

    Mustangman40, I agree. I like the I-Dots much better than the typical 3- dot set-up. I also like their Hackathorn sight.

    I just installed a set of Ameriglo Classic and they are in my opinion much better then the Glock or Meprolight. I bought a couple sets of the Glock Night sights a few months ago and they appear to be very similar to the Meprolight. I have all three installed on my Glocks so I have a direct comparison. I needed a new set for Gen 2 G17 I recently purchased and was not happy with the Glock or Meprolight so I thought I would give the Ameriglo a shot and I am glad I did. The white outline is much brighter then the other 2. In the dark they are similar but I wanted something brighter then the Glock or Meprolight in the day. I like them well enough that I just ordered another set today after I installed and compared them to the other 2 brands.

    The Ameriglo are very similar to Trijicon but less expensive.

    Wow, $65 is a lot of money to install sights. Good decision on doing it yourself.

    Im up in the air on deciding which sites to replace the white glock sights with...

    Intrigued by the TFO's.... Ameriglos look nice, Trijicon seems overpriced...

    I would go TFX instead of TFO, the TFX is an "upgraded" version of the TFO and are supposed to be more durable, I have both and the TFX are worth the difference in cost to me.

    I just purchased 2 sets of Ameriglo's and to me they look almost identical to the the Trijicons at a much lower price.

    I love my Ameriglo. All my glocks are kitted with them. Same sight picture across all my guns. :)

    It's really hard to beat the value of the Glock factory night sights. They perform and are half the price of some others. What's not to like?
