    Those aren't Glock sights. They look like TruGlo fiber optic sights on a Glock 17 or so. Pretty heavily Photoshopped pic, too... probably to accentuate the sights in the shot. TruGlo fiber optic sights don't actually glow. They aren't night sights. The fiber optic tubes gather light along the sides and are nice and bright out the ends (in the daytime). Lots of folks like them, others complain that the tubes fall out with the constant impact abuse a gun naturally receives.

    Now, TruGlo does make some tritium night sights, but that's not what's in the photo you linked.

    Those are HIVIZ sights in the first pic. They are not that bright.

    OK, at 1:40 of the video, you will see Glock night sights on the left, and the TruGlo on the right. It's a daytime shot, so the TruGlo's are brighter, soaking up the sunlight along the sides and concentrating it out the ends. Then, at 1:49, you see a scene where night is falling, and you have glowing sights... those are the Glock tritium night sights. tnoutdoors9 has, I think, six different Glock 19s, and many different sight setups.

    I have Glock night sights on my Glocks and find them very effective - day and night. The tritium tubes have a white ring around each tube for daylight sighting, and the inner tubes are visible glowing brightly at night. Next Glock, I might try Meprolight night sights because of the availability of a wider slot in the rear sights... but I'm nit picking now.

    Take a look at the Advantage Tactical sights. I have them on my carry G 32.

    Wow. Those are crazy! Do you like yours? Are they as quick as they say? I know folks tend to shy away from things that are new and unusual, but those have some appeal.
