    What's the concensus on Tritium and Trijicon night sights? Do they help and I guess they're worth it if they help.

    Thanks.

    I have Trijicons on my 30 and all but one of the rest of my Glocks. It's a range gun with DP adjustable rear and FO front. I think Trijicons are nice but Meps, Ameriglo or other quality night sights are a must for a carry/protection gun.

    Get the Ameriglo Operator sights. They have Trijicon tubes, but they are cheaper, than Trijicons. Only the front sight has the white ring. Draws your eyeball right to it.

    I don't have a problem with Trijicon. I have them on three of my guns, but the Operators are pretty impressive. The oldest set of Triji's are from 1997 and they are still at about 90% glow as the rest of my newer sights.

    I like Mepros' the least. Tall blocky profile, the front sight is too thick, and the tritium glow is too fuzzy. Makes me constantly try to blink the fuzzines away. Making me lose concentration.

    NS is the first mod I make to any new Glock. I have Trijicons on all three and love them. IMO if you are going to CCW you should have NS. :)

    Have Trijicons on the 21 and the 30 came with Ameriglo.

    Whatever you do, do not get the yellow/amber rear. Get green front and green rear.

    I have Mepros on mine. Dont know if they will help, but they sure look cool from my night stand in the dark.

    I have Trjicons on my G30 too. The only complaint is that I think it would be better if the gront site were a different color than the 2 dots on the rear site.

    It looks as though that's what the white circle around the green front site is designed to do. The rear site does not have the white circle around the green.

    I've replaced my Trijicons with XS sights. I love the Trijis, but I love the lightning fast aquisition I get from the XS 24/7 w/ standard-size dot. My accuracy hasn't suffered, either.
