Anyone looking to purchase a set of HD or HD XR sights for glog, be aware that 95% of the product photos online, and that goes for Trijicons site themselves, show the front sight as being small. For the past couple of years the HDs and HD XRs ship with a 5/8in long front sight post. Thats rediculously large, especially for a 26, on top of looking absolutely rediculous.

I spoke wth Trijicon today and they said they'd send a memo out to inform thei vendors of the new size (only a few years late). Asked why the change, they responded with, "...Production".

After ending the call, I decided to check their own site, and look at that, the same small front sight post on the manufacturers website...WTF...

I called back and was met with a lack-luster attitude about they must not have updated the site yet...again, WTF.

Pics attached of what is advertised on trijicon.com and all Trijicon vendors, with exception of TrexArms (as they use their own photos).

Made for an easy decison on who my goto is for MRDS and irons from now on. Holosun and Ameriglo.

To a $57-million company, do Fu&%ing better...

I guess their overseas web developer was out sick for the past two years...or it's the supply chain...or covid...or inflation...

No I didn't, still not the issue...
I understand. It would be nice if the pictures matched what they’re producing. Things do change, and there may still be some of the other version out there on the shelves. Anyhow, they’re still good sights, though I tend to buy Ameriglos myself as well. Just because I like them more.

Im going to keep them and just use them on a 17 or a 19. They look rediculous on the 26...lol

Which ameriglos are you using now/like better than the HDs/XRs?

Im glad it only took social posts and emails to corporate to have a simple thing done @ trijicon...


"Thank you for your feedback Chris!

Our marketing and product management team has been made aware of the image discrepancy for the newer designed Glock sights. They are actively working on creating new photographs for our website as well as for our retailers. We hope to have this project completed soon.

Thank you

Im going to try those for the 26. Thanks!
Keep in mind there are two different versions of those. The Gen 1-4 sets are set up for more of a center hold with the top of the sight being the point of impact. The Gen 5 sets are set up for more of a combat hold where the dot is the point of impact. Either set will fit on any generation of Glock pistol.

Good to know. I'm after a combat hold specifically.

So Ive noticed that the rear portion of the sight is longer past the screw hole going to the rear. Its not equal distances on the front portion and the rear portion. Not like they used to be. To the point of not buying new trijicon sights. I cant stand the looks if thats what you are saying.

I think we can blame the HUGE influx of new shooters for this trend...

New shooters are not so discriminatory until they 'earn' more knowledge...

And Knowledge is earned in the shooting community thanks to hundreds or thousands of dollars spent by new and evolving soon to be educated shooters!!!

(said the 40 years of shooting student who just learned that night sights can be 're-lamped) :oops: :D :cool:

I have Ameriglos on my Glock 17 Gen 3.
