Default Night Sights

I have a Glock 19 and am looking for a reliable brand of night sights to put on it. Can anyone suggest a good brand to use?

I like Meprolights. Green front/orange rears. They are easy to pick up quickly.

Fail,
The actual sights are what's being referred to here, they glow in the dark.

I had MeproLights lights on my 19 and loved them, all three dots were green on mine.

Trijicon, AmeriGlo, MeproLight... they're all high quality stuff.

Take a look at TruGlo TFOs.

Fiber optic rods that use ambient light to brighten a three-dot sight picture, with tritium embedded in the mount to provide night sight capability.

I have them on my EDC XD-40, and am very pleased with their performance.

According to TruGlo, the problems of breakage alluded to in the following video have been addressed.


I have both Trijicon and Meprolight night sights on other pistols and don't see much of a difference between them.

That's good to hear. The TFO sights, with their fiber optic/tritium combination, have better daytime visibility as compared to straight tritium sights.

I got Trijicons on my GLOCK 22 11 or 12 years ago and they are still glowing quite nicely.
