Trijicon Night Sights

Help me out here...what exactly am I looking at in this ad?
I mean, I understand most of it...but one part has me a
bit confused. First, does anybody use these? Second,
what weapon are these being advertised for? Last, does
the description match the product? Just curious.

Trijicon GL01 Night Sights for Glock 17, 19, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 33, 34, 35, 39

Glock 3 Dot Green Front & Green Rear Night Sights for Models 17/17L, 19, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 33, 34, 35, 38 and 39

Trijicon Bright & Tough™ Night Sights are three-dot iron sights that increase night-fire shooting accuracy by as much as five times over conventional sights. Equally impressive, they do so with the same speed as instinctive shooting–and without the need for batteries. Housed in a metal body and cushioned within silicon rubber, Bright & Tough Night Sights feature a unique shock- resistant design that is patented by Trijicon. Each lamp is capped with a sapphire jewel to help evenly distribute the light while protecting the lamp from solvents and puncture. Contained within aluminum cylinders for additional protection, the lamps are mounted on silicon rubber cushions to withstand shock and heavy recoil. Green lamps are warranted for 12 years from the date of manufacture.

umm

Best I can tell, the seller is offering tritium 3-dot night sights that will fit a variety of Glock pistols. Somehow, they've sloppily added/allowed text/specs from Trijicon's ACOG rifle scope in the ad.

Their price is OK for pistol night sights, but is about $700-900 below the price of most ACOG variants. If they're selling an ACOG at this price, it's too good to be true.

night sights

I think TX got it right. He mixed is some text from trijicon's pistol night sights, acog, and I think Glock's night sights. I wouldn't trust this seller because of the ad. Even the price is a little low for the pistol sights. I have trijicon night sights on all my pistols. I like them a lot. There are some other larger tritium sights out there, but from my experience, trijicon's are the brightest. They'll last about 12 yrs.

OK

That's what I thought, but I was really confused with that
ad and yeah, I had already given up on contacting that
guy from the start. Good to hear you guys like the sights
though! Thanks
