I just got a G23 for my EDC and don't like the factory sights. Was wondering what the opinions are on fiber optic vs. night sights, manufacturers, ergonomics, snag resistance, etc. etc. And a quick question, are the Tru-Glo (TFO) sights BOTH fiber optic and tritium?
The Truglo TFO are both fiber optic and tritium. However, with those you have to line up the dots not the top of the sights. That makes the sights inaccurate. I just installed some Aimline sights on my EDC G26 and love them!!! Very fast acquisition and very accurate. I'm not a fan of fiber optic for EDC. They're not as durable and tend to snag on holsters and clothing.

What do I know? I'm only a professional.
If you like striaght-8 (dot over dot sights) then look into ameriglo I-Dot Pros. Got them on my EDC 30s and I love them. Plus they are half the cost of hienie striaght-8's and use trijicon tritium vials.
