I have the Tru Glo F/O on my G34 then went and bought a LWD 4 ported barrel. Put it in and was so happy how it looked. I then noticed that the 4th port was sitting directly below the front sight tip. I immediately thought that it would melt my front sight. So I call the guy I bought them from (Glock Certified) said hey man do you think that I will have an issue with melting that front sight. Of course he says no unless you shoot rapid fire. So needless to say DO NOT use F/O front sights if you have a ported barrel. It melted the F/O tip within 5 rounds. Going with the T.A.S Sights and I will let everyone knows how those work out.

Ok so I shot some before and after. You can see how bright the front sight tip used to be. After 5 rounds with the ported barrel it was melted. This last pic is after using light CLP and brush to clean it just to make sure it was not carbon coating. You can also see from the first pics how close the last port is to the front sight which led me to believe there was a problem in the first place. But you know how Marines are. Shoot it first then reassess. Yep it did exactly what I thought it would. T.A.S sights are already in the mail. Lol

Yeah I just let them of the issue to maybe let there customers know that it will completely defect there sights if they have a 4 ported barrel like mine. Not really big on collecting a refund especially if I knew it would happen. But like a Jarhead I did it anyway lol.

What model do you have because the 34 looks like a longer slide so that would def. work if you have a shorter slide than mine that would give it ample space. The TAS sights will be here fridat so I'm gonna test those out first. Heard and read some mixed reviews so we will see.
