    I puchased my Glock 19 with what I think are factory night sights. On top of the rear site is has "MH3." What are, if any, difference between the factory sights, Trijicon, and Mepro?
    Thanks!

    Good question. I was told my G27 would come with Trijicon NS but when it came it had the Glock NS instead.

    There isn't much difference except the Glocks are cheaper than the Trijicons and, according to Glock, a little brighter. They even have the same guarantee.

    Im happy with mine I was just a little perturbed that the dealer didn't know what he was talking about.

    The "M" is for Meprolight (they supply the tubes), the H3 is for Tritium. The most significant difference between factory and aftermarket Meprolight: the factory front MAY be crimped on, rather than attached with a screw . Mepros and factory night sights have a white plastic ring around the tubes; Trijicon uses (or used) cheapass white paint.
