    For SD use!

    1. XS Sight Big dot/small dot
    2. TFO
    3. Trijicon
    4. Meprolight
    5. AmeriGlo

    They all seems to be pretty close, but which one of them have "the last touch"?

    And of course quality/durability is also a desired factor.

    BTW: Does these sights come in "one size" or is it like GLOCK OEM 6.1, 7.1, 7.5 etc.??? And if they come in different sizes, then "HOW TO CHOOSE"? I prefer the front sight is below the target.

    All of those you list come, as I recall, in two heights, corresponding to Glock's 6.5 and 6.9 sights -- though I could be wrong about the XS sights.

    Sight picture is a matter of personal choice. All of those sights have been praised by some folks on GT, while some have also come in for some criticism (e.g., Truglo TFO warranty and durability have been questioned).

    Of the brands listed Ameriglo. The size needed varies by manufacturer. Just tell who you buy them from what gun it is for.

    Most tritium are warranted for 10-15 years. But is that the time from dealer receive them or when the customer receive them?

    Just thinking about the chance for buying sights which could in theory be 8-9 years old!

    Trijicons have a "born on" date, if that is a concern.
