    I am going to put night sights on my G17 and was just curious who puts out the best night sights for a Glock that is going to be fired a lot and used for home defense?
    The brands I am looking at are TruGlo, Trijicon, and Mepro. Right now I kind of like the look of the new TruGlo tritium fiber optic sights any opions would help.

    I thought about getting the Glock brand night sights but I kept reading post after post about them falling off.

    I like Trijicon, they are sharp, bright and give enough room between front and rear sight when sighting.

    I have the TruGlo tritium fiber optic sights on my G23.

    I carry open and am in many different lighting situations inside and outside of buildings. I like these sights very much. I have just put a set on my new G26. Jury is out on the G26. I have only been to the range with it one time and still evaluating.

    It really is personal pref on what you like but I can recommend the TruGlo's. They are dead on at 15 yards with Fed JHP 180's in my G23.

    I believe that Glock is now using Trijicon viles in thier night sights now that Kimber has bought out Meprolight.

    Heinie Straight Eights ARE THE BEST here's why. You merely put dot over dot into a figure 8 somewhere in center of mass and squeze. They are perfectly outlined for day use also, same theory dot over dot. there is no dealing with putting front in center of rears and then going for both vertical and horizontal alignment....too sloooow. AND there's always the danger in using a 3 dot that you may actually line the front up OUTSIDE the two rears. it will look like a perfect site picture but front will be too far left or right. If you're shooting in the dark, things are bad enough, go for the easiest sighting system and that is HEINIE!!

    I have Meprolight's on most of my Glocks. I've had excellent luck with their product and would buy them again.

    That said, I'm very curious to try Ameriglo's "Operator" sights for myself. A buddy of mine has them on his G17 and commented that his shooting has improved greatly since their installation.

    Can someone post pics of the sight picture of their night sights? It would be great to see some comparisons of the different brands.

    I did a search for Ameriglo Operator, and came up with this:

    Looks like they say Trijicon on them, to me... so what would be the difference?

    Trijicon uses a synthetic saphire lens to focus the light and employs a more expensive, silicone mounting system.

    I've had Trijicons on my USP and thought they were allright, I then read so much about Heinie's and bought some for my G23 a few years back and loved them but never did much low light shooting. This year I went with the CGR Race Cut Heinie's and like them even better than the Standard Heinies, excellent day time sight picture... But now that I've done more low light training and shooting I realized that I find the 3 dot system to be more natural for me, so I have some Ameriglo Operator sights on order and will try them out and report my findings.;b
