I have recently purchased my first glock and have narrowed my choice of night sights down between the trijicon fixed sights, or the meprolight adjustable ones. It seems like it would be nice having some that are adjustable and both brands have great reviews. One thing someone said about the trijicon sights is that the tridium have a white circle around them wich makes aiming during the day time much easier. I will be target shooting quite a bit, but if i ever were to have a break in night sights would be great to have. But first and foremost, i bought this pistol for a new fun hobby to go to the gunrange about once a week. Thanks!

thanks alot great info! so do you think i should just go with fixed night sights as opposed to the adjustable ones? and it does seem like it doesnt really matter too much as far as the brands go people really like ameriglo, trijicon, meprolight, etc. thanks agian.

For a carry gun, home defense etc, I would not go with adjustable. If I was going to do a competition gun only, I might consider adjustable, depending on what kind of shooting I was going to do. The thing that sets Ameriglos out for me is the Orange Front sight. In the day time, it's all but impossible for your eye not to be automatically drawn to that bright orange front sight. They'll get all my future sight business as long as they continue good customer service.

Look at the TFO's they are even better.

It's orange! That's the one I was telling you to check out. It's AWESOME. If you can see, even barely, your eyes will be drawn to the front sight. LOL

sweet. yeah i saw that one a while back. that's definitely the one i would go with. vol's pics helped out too getting an idea of the sight picture it provides. glad to see you like it. i should be able to pic up that giant dot at the indoor range lol. just wish they had that in a rear sight as well :)

Vol and JL run the solid black rear. Wider notch than normal. I like the sight picture their setup provides. I went with the wider rear, but did have them put in yellow night sights. The thought process was that the yellow are much dimmer than the bright front green, so I can have a frame of reference for the rear in low light situation but still have my eye drawn to the front sight.

I'll tell you this. In the last pistol class I took on Dec 20 ... there were several of us from here in it ... I was standing behind the firing line by 10-12 yards during on string of fire (we shot in two squads) and could clearly see NTA's orange ProGlo front sight from that distance. It was clear as a bell to me.

I do remember you telling me this after the drill. 5 of my 7 Glocks have the orange ProGlo . They're fantastic for my aging eyes. I will be updgrading my G26 to same sight but will keep the Dawson Fiber Optic sight on my 34, which I use only for IDPA. I like it a lot too but dont rely on it for my carry guns.

Both Trijicon and Meprolight sights are good quality. I'd just go on their web site and pick the sights you like the best. I don't think you could do wrong.

I would probably pass on the adjustable sights, though. I have them on my 17L and am in the process of replacing them.

I also like the AmeriGlo sights, but choose the models with tritium tubes in the rear sight... I get them without the white rings on Glocks that are mainly for target shooting and with the white rings on Glocks that are for self defense and carry.
