    Looking for suggestions for replacing the sights on my everyday carry g26 9mm. My 40 yr old eyes don't pick up the factory stock sights as well as they used to

    I've used Trijicon with success but I've heard Meprolights are good too. If you're looking for non-night sights, I'm not sure what's out there.

    Those XS sights look nice; I might have to try a set!

    On my 26 I went with a Trijicon front night sight only, and use the stock rear sight. It works out really well. My eye is automatically drawn to that front dot.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. Mu buddy just bought a Springfield xds .45 & it came with a red fiber optic front sight whth stock rear sights & he likes it well. Anyone have experience with this sort of set up?

    I use XS sights as well on all of my Glocks. Pick the big dot for those with poor eyesight.

    I'm 43 ... I put Trijicon on my by a gunsmith and they look a lot better, but I seem to be having accuracy issues. It's most likely just me jerking the trigger or possibly my reaction-hand grip. I'd recommend them though - cost $50 to have them installed.

    I have an xds .45 like your friend. It is a great little pistol that packs a punch. I like the sights, they work for me. Good luck!!
