    I have the Hiviz front sight on my Rugar 22/45 and really like it. I was thinking about putting them on my Glock 19, but I have the factory night sights on it.

    I have to ask what is the intended purpose of this pistol. is it just a fun range gun or an EDC? If it is an EDC, I'd get the TFOs so you get some sight picture in low or no light situations.
    Bend the knees, smooth is fast, watch the front sight.

    I put TruGlo TFOs on all my carry guns...good for day or night!

    I only have fiber optics on my 30-30 rifle, perhaps I would also put FO on my plunker pistols, but my SD arms all have either Trij or Mep night sights...just what I do.

    I am always a little leery of the durability of fiber optic sights. Maybe just me but I don't feel I could trust them to if the going gets rough.

    I've shot a few Glock with Tru-Glo sights and they were great. My G23 has Sevingy comp sights with plain rear and F.O. front. The F.O. is very easy to pick up in daylight.

    Well if its a CC gun i would only use Night Sights (brand & type is your preference) if its a Range gun than the fiber optics work very well in daylight conditions.
    All of our pistols have Night Sights installed (even the Kimber Ultra Carry w/Crimson Trace grips) I do how ever have a Red Fiber Optic front sight on my Springfield Trophy Match (which is a Range only gun)
    I hope this helps.....
