    Need Glock night sight advice

    I'm ready to purchase a Glock 26 for home protection and occasional concealed carry. I'd like to order night sights but I'm not sure if I should get Glock night sights or aftermarket ones.

    I'd welcome advice from anyone with personal experience with Glocks. Thanks.

    I am inclined towards a Truglo TFO front with an XS Sights non-trit rear.

    Having used them, I've become a BIG fan of XS Big Dot sights.
    the 24/7 are tritium and very easy to use.

    Here's a video of them in use.

    I have Meprolights on my G19 and I'm pleased with them.

    Try a set, see how they work in varying light conditions.
    I favor CT laser grips, but seem to be swimming against the current of popular opinion.

    FWIW, I've had Trijicons on one and Meprolites on two of my Glocks for better than 10 years. All are still functional.

    I am going to be putting the XS big dots on mine, but if you decide to go with Trijicons, I have a new in the box set for sale. (Shameless self promotion)

    I put Trijicons on my Glock-36...they work well!

    Stay armed...with night sights...stay safe!

    My Glock 19 has factory night sights, and I love them... they are great in the day time, or evening... I can see them very nicely at the range. When I thought about purchasing my Glock 26, I did not consider it a night sight gun... it's not going to be my home defense gun and I did not want or need it to have night sights... just my 2 cents.
    Be Observant and Be Safe.

    Current: S&W 442, Springfield XD9sc, XDm9, and Glock G26, G19, G23C,
    and SIG P226-40 TT, and Ruger GP-100, and Beretta 92FS
    Former: Taurus 92SS, SIG P220 TT, S&W 360, SIG P239-40, Ruger 22/45 MKII
