Well I tried the trijicon night sights. I had them on for a couple of months before I couldn't stand it anymore. Glock factory sights are one of the few that just make sense to me. Easy sight picture and very simple design. So I swapped them out and just use the factory sights now. Now if Glock or another manufacturer could make the night sights to look like the stock sights, I'd pay a pretty penny for them.

Are you kidding me? Straight 8 sights can go bleep themselves

These look awesome. A friend had them on his benelli m2 and they rock, but I've never seen them on a pistol.

How are they for long range precision?

I was going to replace stocks with mepros and I got lazy so 12 yrs later still the stocks are used (plastic), I've heard about plastic sights falling out of the gun (internet stories), but never witnessed it or know about somebody that actually had that problem.

For the last 5 or so yrs, I painted with hi lighter the white surfaced on the sights and it made some difference, not a night sight but good for daylight

Brownells has a whole slew of sights for the glock. Im looming at getting the rear sight which is trijicon night sight taken out and replaced with a peep style sight from brownells. It reminds me of the sight on an m-16 and m-249. I think it will help with my shooting. Or at least I hope it does lol.

I bought my clip draw and asked the dude and he said sure. 3 seconds later I was the door clip draw installed. They will usally do it free. If not, find another dealer who will and support him.

Very important. Find a gun dealer/store with nice people and no a-holes and you'll be much happier. Guns seems to make people into jerks. That goes for gun counter guy too.


THIS. Whenever I replace sights on one of my Glocks, I put on Aro Tek ghost rings.

I put truglo tfo sights on my 26. They are great at night, and have an awesome bright green sight picture during the day.

I like the style of this ghost ring sites. The trijicon sites I have are awesome sights especially since the pistol with the sites and a 3.5 pound trigger job was only $350.00 lol I still want those ghost ring sites lol
