Went to Bill Jackson's shooting range to shoot my G17/4 with AmeriGlo Pro Operatpr sights for the first time today... took along my sight pusher and made a small adjustment while I was there.

My friend Mike loaned me a gun rest to stabilize my G17 while I tested the sight alignment. I'm not sure what the real name of this gun rest is, but it really held my G17 steady. I took a picture of it with my cell phone (see below).



The gun rest really stabilized my G17 and let me determine whether the rear sights were aligned correctly. The biggest advantage of the gun rest is that it neutralized all my bad shooting habits and let me focus on the real accuracy of the gun. Turns out my G17/4 is much more accurate than I am... :(

I like the Pro Operators and plan to shoot them a lot more. The tritium only rear sight might be better suited to outdoor shooting rather than a dimly lit indoor range. I had some trouble seeing the gaps between the sides of the front sight and the rear sight in the low light. I have poor near vision, so it is not the sight's problem.

My new G19/4 was a joy to shoot! The only thing I did to it was remove the slide and lubricate the trigger/connector area with a little Shooter's Choice... other than that, it was right out of the box...

I shot pretty good with the 19. I'm thinking about getting a set of the AmeriGlo Pro Series sights for it. I want to compare how I like the rear sights with and without the white circles around the tritium tubes... Fun day!

just curious what kind of grouping did you find with your G17 in the rest and at what range? and if you also shot the G19 in the rest how did the .5 inch shorter barrel compare?
I shot the G17 at 25 feet and had groupings about 2 inches in diameter.

Didn't shoot the G19 in the rest...

The Pro are tritium night sights which is what I would consider Ameriglo as being known for. They do make a fiber optic front sight. There's a couple of us on here that are loyal to Dawson Precision for FO due to their customer service.

Sounds like you had a fun day with your pistola's.

I'm liking Glock tritium sights. They work in low light and darkness real well. Their casing not much to look at in daylight hours though; their casing is not pretty at all. But, they do work good. I had the chance to compare them to Meprolite and a set of Trijicon's. At night/low light, the Glock tritium look just like Meprolite. The Trijicon seem to be smaller, but they look like their fine tuned if that makes any sense. Considering cost, Glocks are the best bang for the buck so far that I've found.

I had thought about Ameriglo. I am thinking next summer when I do my MOS pistol, I will get a set then for a 40 or 41 MOS.

But some of weren't here then.
Soooooo.......
I just put Truglo's TFX Fiber Optic / Tritium sights on my G22. Although they are green on green the front sight has a white ring around it to make it stand out. I'm very pleased with them. $99 plus shipping from Amazon.
