    Best sights for Glock 36, Glock 36 owners only!

    Well, after years of debate, and a recent opportunity.....I finally landed myself a brand new G36. I'm liking the feel and hopefully get it to the range this week. As we all know, stock Glock sights are for newbies. Since I'm not a Glock newbie, I'm asking what is the best set of sights in your opinion to put on a G36 for anything? Your experience etc. I'm just thinking a little bit different this go round than from what I've done before. Keep in mind I want these to be night sights as well. I've been looking at plenty. I've gone with Glock OEM, SIG, Trijicon, and Meprolight sights in the past. Is it time to find something new? Been homing in on the TruGlo TFO sights as interesting. Give me your honest opinions. Experience with one or more will help. Thanks.

    I have Meprolights on mine. I just want simple night sights, and that is what they are. But, they work well.

    I've gone with the Mepros over the Trijicons most recently. I just like them and the price better. Liking the slant style of the TFO sights, just don't have any experience with them.

    I.C.E. CLAW? EMS Rear Sight with ProGlo Tritium Front Sight

    I do not agree with everything that Rob Pincus has to say, but he has a great sight system going here. I have this own several of my guns and really like it. Very bright in day light with normal tritium insert for night.

    I've also seen the tritium bar and dot front sight deals. I am looking for something different on this deal. Wondered if just a tritium front sight would do the job on this package. Thanks for options!

    I installed XS Big Dot sights on my G36. If you go this route be aware that the head on the front sight fastening screw has to be filed down so as not to interfere with the barrel. It's not hard to do if you are deliberate and take your time.

    TruGlo TFO's here, which I love! The Tritium is very bright in the dark, but the FO adds significant visibility in low light (dusk / dawn) and also helps my older eyes in any light.

    I've had standard Glock sights as well as Trijicons, the TFO's are my choice for my G36.

    simple green three dot Trijicons on all my Glocks except the ones that came with Factory Glock night sights. My local gun store
    installs them for a good price while you wait. The Glock night sights are brighter than the standard Trijicons (I read somewhere that they are Meps).

    Agree. I prefer the Meps.

    XS 24/7 Big Dots! My "seasoned" eyes enjoy seeing that bright, large, clear, tritium-filled, volleyball-sized front pumpkin.

    I like my G36 with XS Big Dot sights. They glow in the dark, are really quick to acquire sight picture and sight alignment and accurate.

    TFO's are my choice for my G36.
    And my G17 and both G26's.

    I replaced Triji's with TG TFO's on my G17.

    I'm sort of curious why you'd think the 36 was different enough that you would seek recommendations based on it alone? I realize that the .45's use a different sight height than the 9's or 40's, but it's the same as the 10's and 357's...
