    I don't think anybody does that kind of sights enhancement locally.

    ;F na din pala.

    ganun po ba? what other option can you advice sir, gusto ko po sana na maging functionable din ang sights ng unit ko at night or in poorly lighted areas. Thanks, glad to be a member of BOG.

    Final Option has TruGlo BRIGHT SIGHTS. They are not made by Trijicon and are not night sights. They only use ambient light to enhance your sight picture. In short, kailangan may light parin around you because they do not emit their own light. They don't have tritium inserts. Tritium night sights like Trijicon and MeproLight are pretty expensive. Trijicons were something like 8500 a set sa FinalOption and Mepro's went for 7500 sa Stronghand.

    Your best bet is to get have a good gunsmith custom fit night sights for you. Buy a set that closely matches your sight slots and pa fit mo nalang sa smith.

    Good luck bro! And welcome...

    unlike other bogs here, i dont like the 3 dot configuration, i takes too long for me to know which is which(rear or front dot) in low light, sa horizontal ako nahihirapan, try mo rin, plain rear with tritium fronts. its faster, coz your eyes are drawn to a single dot and lastly, even in low light tritium or not, you can still see your rear sight, i you could identify your target(friend or foe) that means you can see your rear sight.

    MEPS is a better choice. But if you want an adjustable, Bomar makes a rear sight with a TRITIUM outline.

    +1 to this observation. I've retained all the stock rear sights on my guns and have only changed the front sights. For me, the bright front sight is easier to acquire on its own. Of course, YMMV.

    bikethief,

    Thanks sa info sir. medyo mahal po pala ang tritium insert night sights, i think i'll have to dig for something na medyo mura, kulang pa po sa budget.what about the fiber optics thing that i once saw at the range? i also heard that it costs less than 2k including gunsmith fee, is it true? does it also help in low light situations? Thanks again.

    I have no idea regarding the front sight installation cost since I did all of them by myself. It's an easy operation with the Glock.

    Also, I don't think you'll be able to find just a front sight locally, as all the night sights I've seen come as a set (front and rear).

    Regarding fiber optic sights... these are useful when there is enough ambient light to illuminate the fiber optic element. In total darkness however, you won't be able to see this type of sight.

    Another option that you could explore is the use of luminous powder similar to that used in wrist watches. The concept is discussed in this thread: http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=497308

    I shoot at night/darkness at least a couple of times per year. I agree with adding the tritium to just the front sight. If you're going to get it in the rear too, you should get a contrasting color (if two dots), or get a bar in the rear or another dot like the Heinie sights.

    Having tritium just in the front works exceptionally well when using a flashlight. In low light to complete darkness, you should be using both anyway.

    What I have on mine is an orange front and green rear. Works pretty well. Specially in really low light conditions.

    To all BOG sirs,

    Thanks sa mga input na ibinigay nyo, nagkaroon ako ng good insights regarding the use of sights in low/no light conditions, and i finally narrowed my option in using /inserting night sights on my full size combat 9mm tanfoglio. any store/ place where i can find one which suits my gun? paki na rin po ng price kung may info. thanks ulit mga kuya.
