I've always liked Trijicon and have them on a couple of Glocks. However, take a look at some TruGlo Brite-Site Tritium/Fiber Optic Sight Set, I looked at a pair the other day, and they seem really nice and they are bigger and easier to focus on. I've always liked the Trijicon's, but I've always thought the front sight was a little too small.

trijicon and tru glo are both good. I prefer trijicon, I have them on all of my auto handguns. The tru glo's will be a little cheaper and bigger like catfish said. It's really personal preference. I know the tritium in the trijicon sights is guaranteed for 12 yrs.

I agree with a comment I read earlier, let's do all pitch in and buy him a Glock. He will never look back! I've got the first $20.oo.

Personally, I have the GNS sites and find them impressive. They are the first tritium sites I've used, so I can't make a true comparison to others on the market.

Glock night eyes

I've pushed on a lot of sights but have been most satisfied with Trijicon,
Meprolight, XS systems,& Sig factory sights. Right now, I have XSsystems Big dot on the house gun and CCW piece (both Glock 31 & 23). Trijicon on my Glock 20, 6"barrel hunting pistol. and now for too much granularity; The Big dot "front" sight is great but I felt the vertical mark on the rear sight was too small (plus I busted one trying to push it on(expensive - attention to detail))so I put a Trijicon double dot rear sight(works for me) (not recommended). All Glock rear sights push off to the left (memory (?)). All this is only my prejudices. Different strokes for etc.. so u see, a lot $ can be wasted before you are satisfied. Most of these maufacturers have customer reps who can be very helpful, if you ask the right ??s.

Meprolight

Personally,I like Meprolights,their a little cheaper than the Trijicon,but just as good with a 12 year half life.They have diffrent color sights...green,yellow,and orange.Go with the green,their easier to see following a shot.

Glock sights

I had an XS Big Dot sight on my G19, couldn't get used to it after 20 yrs of notch and post sights, not very precise. I have the Heinie Slant Pro straight eights on my G19 now and love them.

Can u pick-up on the target with the Heine slant pro better than the BigDot. I'm considering a Heine now. Besides the ones SamD posts.

charley9toe, XS sights

are pretty good for close up shooting. I saw a video of a guy hitting distant targets with it to show they can be used for long range accuracy, but I think after nearly 20 years of notch and post sighting systems, the big dot is just too different. I also put a huge value on what successful competitive shooters use and you'd be hard-pressed to find a Big Dot system in use at the IDPA or USPSA nationals. I have the Heinie straight eights on my G19 and I'm going to get a set of Sevigny Carry sights for my G34. I had a Dawson Precision adjustable rear and fiber optic front, but it's just not sturdy enough for my comfort.
