    ive been looking into a set of nightsights for my glock 19 and have a few questions..
    1.. i am considering either a 3 dot (2 in the back 1 in the front) or a 1 dot set up (just the front). i realize it will be more difficult to line up just the front sight. but it also wont look like a pistol laying on my nightstand at night. any pros or cons about either of these setups?
    2. what brand of night sights. im new to this whole pistol thing so i was looking for recomendations or warnings from you guys.. what do you use.. how do you like it.. would you buy it again.
    3. pricing. where is a good place to purchas esaid sights?
    4. instalation. i have anew glock 19.. manufactured in 2006. how hard will it be to install these sights myself. either front or front and rear. Will i need any special tools to do this?

    im sure this has been gone over and over and over on this thread and i realize there is a search feature. but doing it this way will allow me to check your responses from my palmtop while i am out all day..

    Thanks in advance for any information or direction you can give me

    With all the great night sights out there, each has its proponents. It's amazing how "personal" sights are. Then again, we live inside our heads, and see things somewhat uniquely... :freak:

    Great tritium sight choices include:

    Meprolight
    Trijicon
    XS

    We have all of the above, and they're all great; the latter (XS) being a more specialized sight for most people.

    Newer sights that are getting good reviews include TRUGLO TFO & Ameriglo; the latter allows you to buy sets or separate components.

    All require similar steps to install. Are you inclined and equipped to do fine mechanical work? It isn't rocket surgery, but some savvy is required, and a sight pusher is desirable. Some warranties require professional installation... I've always had our armorer do it.

    Here are three links to get you started:

    Do that search when you get PC time! ;)
