    Glock night sights

    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows of a good set of night sights that won't cost a arm and leg for my Glock 23. Does anyone have experience with the night sight paint that I've seen? How was that if so?

    I have meprolights on my Glock 19. They are pretty nice.

    Paint requires that it be previously charged with light. 'Something that my guns don't get much of when in the safe or by concealed carry.

    I like tritium Trijicons. It's the first (and only) mod that I do to any Glock.

    I have had Meprolight night sights on my Glock 20 SF for several years and really like them.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    They actually have sights where the front sight is already made with that paint of which you speak (saw them at GlockParts.com). I, personally, like the XS Big Dot sights because they are BIG and acquisition is very good. I also guess price depends on how much value you place on an arm and a leg ...

    Trijicons. Night sight paint is a waste of your money and your time.

    I installed Meprolight sights on my Glock 19 and have been so happy with them that I just left my 26 at my LGS for the same treatment. Once I got used to the night sights, even in a decently lit range I found it was much harder to keep track of the front sight with the stock sights. You can probably get a much better price online than at a store, then just pay to have them installed (Amazon has them at something like $20 less than my LGS).

    I like 2 dot sights, faster for me with less rear sight clutter. Check out the Ameriglo I-Dot Pro's if you're interested in that type of thing. High vis lime green or orange front with tritium insert and 1 tritium insert in rear sight without paint or anything around it to distract you from the front sight. It's just there as a reference point in low light when you need it.

    2 dot night sights tend to be a little cheaper as they only have 2 tritium vials. Got my I-Dot Pro's for 80 bucks shipped.

    All my Glocks have either Trij's or Mep's...

    I have a set of XS sights (XS Sight Systems - Sights) on my Glock 30. I went with the Big Dot 24/7 Express (Front Tritium, Rear Tritium) version and the cost is $120. The gun store installed them for free.

    Meprolight Tru Dots are usually the cheapest my local guy carries. Love them & need them on my current piece.

    One way to save money on night sights is to get a two-dot arrangement instead of a three-dot. Usually $30-$40 cheaper.

    How much, to you, represents "an arm & a leg"? IMHO, the best sets around cost less than ~$120 while nothing worth the effort costs less than ~$65. My pick - AO 24/7 Big Dots.
