I haven't had a chance to play with them yet. I'm still stuck on whether or not I'm changing my sites to fibers or not. I'm still kinda wary of night sights. Someone pointed out that in the dark if someone gets behind you they give your position away so I'm on the fence for those.

If you are talking the Truglo TFO, they have the tritium/fiber optic sight so they glow in the dark.

I have them on my 19... Love them. As for giving away location, they won't 'tell on you' unless someone is right on top of you already. Mine are TFO.
That's is awesome! I would like a set of tfo's but maybe the yellow rears for faster front sight acquisition.

Just a side note, for anyone who values a simple opinion. A buddy of mine has Trijicon sights on his Springfield 1911. They are bright, but standing behind him from roughly 3-4 feet they weren't visible. It's not like an Indiglo Timex or anything where it beacons your position to enemy forces.

Besides, hopefully, should you ever need them your target will be in front of you. If they are right behind you, with or without night sites, you have much bigger problems than sight light. :D

Exactly! They're amazingly bright to the user, but after several feet of distance, they essentially disappear. One would need to possess feline-like vision to see these from anywhere but in my personal space.

I have try-glo sights on my G23. Didn't want them but had waited months for the standard tritium type and decided to give them a try. I find they function well, especially around dawn/dusk. I don't like that they feel kinda "plastic-y" and I doubt the rear would hold up to a one-hand reload. The front sight also rattles a bit. Would not buy them again

I have a set of Truglo TFO and I like them. They are metal bases. They glow in the dark as well as in the daylight. They are very sturdy, just make sure you put a little loc-tite on the front sight screw. That way they won't come lose or rattle. Good luck and hope this helps.

I was gonna say the same, but I'm glad someone beat me to it. If someone's behind you in the dark, you're screwed either way, but if they can see your night sights, you'd better start making whatever final thoughts/prayers/whatever that you'd like to make before you reach your end.
