Trade it in for a 1911 or h&k lololol j/k I saw your response in the other thread.
Lol yea. I'd rather have them all. I have never sold or traded a gun. And I don't plan on it. If I won't another gun I will just buy it out right. Needles to say I have a long wish list.

Bleh night sights, the truglow tfo's are much better. And quite a few things you can do, anything you can think of im sure you can get done. Like mine has barrel work solid guide rod both in robar np3+ trigger sights mag tuning and stainless steel pins throughout.

persoanally i see the polymer pistols as more a utility type firearm. they were not really made to customize and bling out. my XDm40 is totally stock and might at the most get a set of night sights. i have bought several more mags and might buy a few more. but i like mine as it came from the factory and see doing anything else to it, would just make it ugly and gaudy. but everyone has different tastes, so to each his own.

If you try them you might like the fact they allways work very well in all lighting or no lighting and done need charging or the need to reflect light like some do. Its nice with it being a nightstand gun at night because i can allways see my 3 dots so theres no struggle to find it. But you like what you do, i just think they work well reguardless how they look.

I know what your saying, I run ameriglo idot pros on my carry firearm and they are pretty bright. Can't the vials crack or something like that on those type of sights? Luckily that's why there's so many different makers of sights because everyone likes different things.

I thank I'm going to go with night sights. And a .460 Rowland conversion for hogs when I'm working at the hunting camp. That's probably about it. I'm not in to flashing these things up much at all. I just wonted it to be a little different. Hey a .460 XD, now that's different.

Supposedly if they get struck hard and direct enough but theyre in a steel shroud and to me seem plenty secure and safe. But if they do for sone reason ill just get a new set, its $100 so its not breaking the bank just a neusance.

How about these? I like that they have 2 glow rings powered by charging. And they also have the self illuminating capsules. How long will they be good fore before the capsules stop glowing?

Usually night sights have a warranty for like 12 years I believe. My ameriglos have a 12 year warranty.

Hmm one way to find out for sure is to try them but the idea if charging my sights doesnt appeal to me even if they charge quickly, i like 24/7 availability. Up to you if you like them try them out let me know what you think.

You don't have to charge them. They are self illuminating like the ones you were talking about. They also have 2 rings around them that can be charged.

I use the trigicon with the orange front post, quick front site acquisition during the day and three tritium dots at night.
