    Truglo fiber optic nite sights?

    I have a Glock 27 gen 4 on layaway and am wanting a set of these for it. I have a friend who has these on a G26 and I like them a lot. How do these compare to regular nite sites like merpro lites for example?

    Can you see them in your dark bedroom at night? Just asking because I like looking where my G26 is in my room (which I keep pitch black) at night and seeing those three little glowing dots. Is there any issue with the dirt and movement a carry piece sees? Any real life pics of them in darkness and light? I would think they would be great in the day are with minimum light.

    I have Meprolight (green and green) on a G26 and they look outstanding at night. White dots in the day. I have Meprolight (front green rear yellow) sights on a Springfield XD40 and that was a bad investment. The yellow is hardly visable. In retrospect, I feel like I should have went with the Tru-Glow sights. At least on the XD40. Live and learn...

    I love my TFOs....but opinions do vary. I plan on putting them on all my guns. I only have them on one right now.

    I have been thinking of trying two different colors for point aiming and quick site picture but I wasn't sure of the colors to use. I like the green and was concerned that the other colors wouldn't pick up well. Note to self, don't use yellow.

    My Sig has tritium rear and True Glow front, the tritium's are bright in low light and complete darkness the TG shines all the time like a tiny green star.

    Quite gloating. At least these companies make them for your gun. Not available for either version of my Baby Eagles (machining required), and I sooooo want a set of fiber optic sights.

    So your saying the TG(f.o.) sights work in darkness?

    I have a set of TFO's on my Glock 19 and they are fantastic. I have had Trijicon night sights on previous Glocks and they don't compare (especially in daylight shooting). At night they are so bright that they cast a green glow on the wall closest to the night stand.

    Yes. Tritium (for darkness) and Fiber Optic (for daylight). TFO. Glow brightly all the time. They're nice sights.

    I have them on two of my Glocks. After having retina surgery these are a Godsend.

    Yes, I run a TGFO on front because it is visible (glows), in daylight and darkness. My tritium vials in the rear have white outlines for day shooting when the gas isn't visible.

    That's cool, I always wonder if a fiber sight needed a light source to be visible. Any issues with accuracy or dirt or cleaning?
