Are trijicon night sights worth it for my everyday carry pistol.???
Triple like. DC only allowes one per post.For me, yes, I love the HD's.
The original Tru-Glo's were very fragile, I lost the element several times from the front sight, after repairing it and gluing it back into the sight body several times, the tritium vial leaked and died.
While I liked that bright aiming dot in daylight it's not sturdy enough for a EDC gun that sees training/classes.
"Orange dot"? On my pistols, it's a freakin' golf ball!The orange front dot is larger and brighter than several of my FO front sights.
It is HUGE! I had a guy ask me after a stage what my front sight was, he could see it from the gallery! I find it helps me index into the target as I push out during my presentation."Orange dot"? On my pistols, it's a freakin' golf ball!
Seriously though - I think that the large, highly visible orange dot makes a big difference in acquiring one's front sight in a hurry, and on staying focused on it when stress is applied. I saw an immediate improvement in my accuracy at speed when I went from a conventional 3-dot to the Trijicon HD's.
I have trijicon on my Dan Wesson 3 dot, I have night/day mepro light tru-dot on my sig p239, they are a bright fiber optic in the day, bright at night but they are F'ing Huge, I wouldn't get them again for a carry I should have left the factory trijicon sights on the gun I would have been happier.
I would probably still like the front sight the Meprolights Tru-Dot day/night (fiber optic/trijicon) but trijicon for the rear and even both would have been fine trijicon, I love my green front amber rear on my dan wesson I see them great in the day time!
