Do the Glock Night Sights have a tennifer treatment? Are the tubes made by mepro or triji? Thanks.

Tritium has a half-life of 12.26 years. So after approx 12 years, the lamps will be half as bright. After about 24 years total, they will be 1/4 as bright as when they were new. So you can see that the lamps will still be visible long after we can see.
Personally, I don't like new lamps. It can be difficult to find the target over such bright lights. In addition, they are much too bright for my personal safety. For instance, if the perp gets around behind you a bit, you'll stand out like a sore thumb...

Seriously? :rofl:

I've never had brand new night sights like you descibe, they aren't that bright. If a "Perp" get's behind me, he already knows I'm there, the sights won't make a difference at that point, and if he see's the sights and not me, he has one heck of an eye.

The steel sight casing is tennifer treated, and the tritium tubes are from Meprolite. The sights have a 15 year warranty with Glock.

Best, Jon
Awesome. My G27 and brand new G36 both have them.

QUESTION: My FFL/Gun store guy told me Glock will soon no longer sell new guns with night sights, it will be an aftermarket option only. Is this true?

I believe the guns with factory night sights are going to be LEO only, I've been thinking about picking up a G19 with them and most online dealers are already out, going to see if I can find one at a show tomorrow.

I got lucky, I guess... just got my G36 with perfectly aligned night sights. This gun just points.

I just purchased a Gen4 19 two weeks ago and asked if the gun came with night sights. Before looking in the case, the dealer told me that Glock is no longer making them with night sights. I then decided to buy the gun and when he started ringing it up he noticed that there was in fact Glock night sights installed already. He was pretty surprised so it sounds like there is some confusion out there for sure on this issue.

I recently picked up a G27. My local dealer said his distributor had them with stock sights and night sights. I chose the night sights - all my Glocks have night sights, some factory, some aftermarket.

My G27 front sight is screwed on, not staked.

LOL, the HK night sights are way to bright, but then again you have to charge them with your flash light before they will work.

I had a Kimber TacPro with factory Meprolight night sites that you could easily read with in a pitch black room. At arms length you could see the green glow on your face when walking by a mirror. They were the definition of way too bright.

Glock front sights are now screwed on, night sights as well as standard sights.
Standard for Glocks now and have been so for approaching a year (?) or so.
