    I am in the market for a set of night sites for my glock. After research I feel that there are 2 different sights that look as if they would work well for me. Trijicon HD, truglo TFO. I would be using them for range time and personal defense/carry. Unfortunately I don't have any friends or family thAt use these sights to try out before I buy. I have heard good and bad about both sights. I was hoping for some feed back or advise about which sites would be better for my intended use. Thank you in advance.

    Truglo are about 80-100 and the trijicon are about 125-150

    If your entertaining the thought of the HDs you should check out Ameriglo which also use trijicon inserts and are cheaper.

    Ok I am contemplating trijicon for $80 installed at the local shop but the ameriglo I see on cheaper than dirt and other places are 70 with the trijicon tritium inserts but are they older so won't have the same life? Just a thought... But I hear rather than paint its white plastic around the tritium insert on the ameriglos so it won't fade. Any thoughts?

    Not sure what your getting at. Ameriglo uses new trijicon tritium inserts. I can assure you mine are bright in the dark.

    No not the tridium I realize those are the same. The color around them in your pictures are plastic not paint if I understand correctly but the trijicon sights are paint around the inserts and the paint fades over a year or two unlike the plastic

    After extensive shooting just put a little alcohol on the tip of a q-tip and swirl it around the circle.

    So paint doesn't fade it just gets dirty and you're saying clean them?

    I just bought some Truglo TFOs and those things are bright. I had a scary experience the night before I bought them and realized I could not aim for crap at dark and I stopped procrastinating. The thing I like about the TFOs is that it is fiber optic/ tritium so during the day time, the sun shines into the fiber optic portion making them glow bright green even during the day. I could acquire a sight picture much faster than the stock sights at day and night. I absolutely love them.

    Just put xs big dot sights on my 19. Really quick target acquisition. Will be putting them on my 26 and 27 next.
