After a lot of time researching on what I want, I just put trijicon HDs on my new G26.
Low profile/ snagfree Meps for me on my G27, did a lot comparisons and one thing I found out is that the white circle around the Trijicon sights rubs off over time, where the Meprolights are sealed and don't. $80 and guaranteed for 10 years. Glow really bright.
Does anyone know if Truglo TG131GT2 sights will fit on a glock 23? I know I should have bought the TG131GT1 sights but the store clerk passed me the wrong ones, I didn't check, and now I'll have to drive two hours back to the store to exchange them. How different could the sights be?

I did some research for you, and it appears that the ones you have TG131GT2 Fits Glock 20, 21, 29, 30, 31, 32 & 37
and the TG131GT1 Fits Glock 17/17L, 19, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 33, 34, 35, 38 & 39. If it dont' fit, don't force it.
Dude, I would call the place where you made the purchase, and tell them what happened. Have them ship you the right sight set, with a return lable, so you can send the others back.
I am looking to replace my old Glock 27's factory night sights and noticed that Meprolight has a new, adjustable model for the subcompacts called the Ad-Com.
Do any of you have any experience with this model that you are willing to share?
I like those
$18. for shipping---- Ouch
i dot pros are my new favorite

Just put the green/green Tru-Glo TFO sights on my G17 - $84.99 from Amazon Prime. Unbelievable!!! In bright sun they absolutely POP! And in the dark, they still pop! By comparison, I just bought a NIB Springfield Armory TRP with factory Trijicon night sights. While they are nothing to brag about in daylight, at night they're nice and bright. BUT... side by side in the dark the TFO's are noticably brighter! In the daytime, no comparision! For my old eyes, the TFO's are the best I've found so far!
I am really hooked on Heinie Straight Eight sights. I've been using them on my Glock 30 for some years and now I just installed them on my new Glock 34. Might do a hat trick and install the Heinie sights on my Glock 19 also. To me they are that good.
I have XS Big Dots on my 43. I really like them.
Warren Sevigny comp rear. Dawson .125" wide tritium front. That's right, one dot only.
If your skills stink because you don't have nighthouse training, you might prefer 2 dot:
IMO, 3 dot sights are cluttered and messy under most low light conditions, which slows me down. Pretty much obsolete due to newer quality single and 2 dot setups.
Ps: XS big dots are garbage. I gave mine away for free. Great for close ranges. But at close range, I don't even need sights. At 25 yards+, they are extremely slow.
Yes turglo is the great choice, you should also check meprolite they are also known for perfect illumination.. here you can find a little comparison http://www.riflescopeguy.com/5-best-night-sights-glock-pistols/
This was a nice write up, thanks for passing on. I just made the choice of going with Meprolite's on my G27. $62. Via Amazon is hard to beat
I'm going to order a glock from my blue label dealer soon. Did they give you the option to order one with night sights on it?
G17 XS Big Dot(a) by Kennydale posted Jan 9, 2016 at 5:12 AM
XS Big Dots are my preference.
Trijicon HD's! I have them in yellow... awesome!
If I've missed an answer being given to this question somewhere along the way, forgive me...
I'm weird. I like the stock Glock sights (the U shape rear sight works well for me). I also want a fiber optic front sight that doubles as a night sight because I like the increased visibility during the day along with the glowing in the dark. Is there a set of sights that would combine both the stock size/shape with the fiber optic/night front sight?
If not, is there at least a fiber optic / night sight front sight that is the same height as the stock front sight so that I could use it with the Glock branded steel rear sight that is luminescent?
Guess I should mention I have a Gen G19.
Thanks for any help.
Yes, but I'd recommend just getting another G19. One perfectly setup for day, the other for night.
Pretty sure Dawson and Ameriglo have stock ht front night sights and FO sights.
Try the stock rear sight on backwards with a really bright front to see what you think of that. Easy free test.
I probably wasn't very clear with the way I worded it previously. I know Glock makes a luminescent rear sight that has the U shape. I'd be ok with that if there isn't a true night sight U shaped rear.
Is there a front sight that is stock height that is the combination fiber optic night sight?
