I'm interested in putting tritium night sights on my G17.

Looking through the forum I ran across a link for Glock's sights, which look to be the closest to the stock sights in terms of size and shape, and the least expensive option for night sights: http://www.gtdist.com/ProductDetail.aspx?PartNumber=GLOCK-NSXXXX

But... In the threads with people discussing night sights - I don't see Glocks ever mentioned as a favorite.

So my question is - why not? What are they lacking that have most folks preferring other brands?

We have them on one of ours too and plan to put them on the rest. We've been very happy with them.

I have them on my G-20 and love them, plus at almost 1/2 the cost, winner...

Thank you for the quick replies. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't something I was missing here before making a purchase.

I have the Glock factory sights on all my Glocks. They are an outstanding value and Glock puts their warranty on them. The Glock factory NS use Meprolight tritium tubes which are my preferred brand of NS. Bill

I like the Glock factory night sights. However, I love the TRUGLO TFO sights. If you're on a budget then the stock Glock night sights are the way to go. I can install them for you also.

I have them on all of mine too. They are, as far as I know, made by Meprolight.

They arrived Thursday and I installed them Saturday, and I'm quite happy with the choice. Thanks again for the responses.

Argyle_Armoring, thank you for the offer but installation was smooth sailing. As for TFOs, I haven't tried them, but have not been a fan of the optic fiber sights I've used in the past - purely a personal taste issue though.

Metal.

Unlike the stock front sight which is half metal and half plastic (the white dot is part of a plastic piece that runs through the metal body of the sight and also forms that tab that fits down into the slide) the night sights are all metal (save of course for the glass vials inside the dots, and what looks like clear resin sealing them in)
