    I have 2 brand new Glocks, A G33 w/Glock steel sights(ordered that way) and a G19 with stock tupperware.

    I want to put night sights on myself(maybe)

    What are the BEST(brightest,longest lasting) and How hard is it to do it?

    Thanks in advance

    Not very hard to do at all, so long as you have the hex driver and a brass punch.


    I went with Meprolight, but like guns, everyone's different. You can't go wrong with TFO's, Meprolight or Trijicon.

    You'll need Loctite for the front sight usually.

    If your work well with your hands it should be manageable.

    Best is up to the user. What kind of sight picture do you want?

    Tritium has a half life of 12 years. As long as you get fresh sights the life span should be pretty much identical. I don't know any manufacturers that have figured out how to bend the laws of nuclear physics.

    Invest in a rear sight tool if you want it done right. You're taking a chance driving rear sights in with any kind (brass or nylon) punch. The ampule will break if you hit it wrong. If you must, I'd go with a nylon punch.
