    TFO's for a G23

    I want to order a set of TFO's for my 2nd Gen G23. Awhile ago you were able to order a set with green front and yellow rear. I saw a these on a gun at a gun show and really liked the contrast in color. Anybody know who sells this combo now, all I can find is all green.
    Thanks

    Thanks for that link NCHornet. I've been wondering about these sights myself. Are you planning to install them yourself? Or do these require a gunsmith's expertise?
    Anyway, Looking forward to your impressions when they arrive.

    When I got my TFOs for a SA XD40, I had the local gun shop put them on with a sight press. Much easier than trying to put them on your self and a lot less chance breaking your new expensive sights.

    I have the yellow / green combo on my G17. I like the much better that the Green / Green's I have on the G19, G22 & G26. Plus they are far better that the night sights on my G23, G21 & G27.
    THEY ARE GREAT SIGHTS FOR OLD EYES! The only thing that comes close to them is the BIG DOT on the G30. They work a little faster up close but you loose accuracy at distance. TFO's are my 1st pick.
    I installed evrything myself without a pusher - just becareful.

    I will have the local rip off shop put them on. I am not about to take a drift and hammer to sight like these. I will let you know how I like them once they get here. Ordered them today.
    Thanks

    You really can not hurt them. If they break tapping them on, then you do not want them on you defense gun.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
