I have them on my G17. I have not tried to abuse them, but they have been problem free for years.

They are bright and have a good sight picture. No complaints.

I've got a set on my G32 and will be putting a set on my 17 within the next few weeks. I don't think I know anyone who has regretted installing them on any handgun, even several friends who were diehard Trijicon junkies have switched over to the TFO's.

A budy of mine who is an ex training officer swears by them.

In fact the last time I saw him, he was at the range installin a set on his new Gen 4 Glock.

He said they always glo, no matter how dark, and are much better in the daytime then nightsights.

I will probably go for another set of trijicons on my Glock though. These have lasted longer than anyone has a right to expect.


BTW: Does anyone know what the little tubes on the tru-glos are made of, and how hard are they to break?

Are all three dots the same color or did you go with two different colors
And does two different colors really matter.

Fiberglass rods and practically impossible to break. They take light in from the sides which shows up bright at the textured ends. Sort of like those plastic clipboards that the edges glow. The light source for night time is the tritium bulb in the base behind the rod. The tritium will eventually wear out and get dimmer. However, as long as they are kept clean, the rods will still transmit any light they are able to pick up. So, daytime use will not fade as long as they are maintained. I plan on getting some for my 1911 when I manage to get back to TN and buy it.

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.

Fiber optic. (same as a lot of sights,including ACOG) You can't hurt them.

Some people prefer for the front sight to be a different color saying that it makes it easier to separate out at night. Just think of lining up 3 dots and the front dot is outside the sight instead of between the rear dots. Of course, you have to be a moron to do that because the spacing would be way off and it would be uncomfortable on the grip (at least noticeably feel odd) But, if you are far sighted, it may be better so that your dots don't become one continuous blur.

Thanks, G.

I've been considering Tru glo, because my Trijicons are finally starting to dim out.

I would go with all the same color. I think after decades of pistol sight dots all the same color, throwing another color in there would confuse this old dog.

I do have this concern about total (or very near so) darkness. Just don't have the experience to know how the truglos would work.
If you go into an interior room in your house without windows, close the door and turn off the lights, what do you see with the tru-glos?

Just like the Trijicons- there are tritium lamps at the end of the fiber optic. The fiber optics make them much brighter in daylight and dusk and dawn.

Thanks for the edumacation.

I did not know they had tritium lamps. I thought they were just fiber optic tubes.

Duh!

Retcop, I am disappointed in you. You didn't read my whole post.

Also, with the "new" method of holding a flashlight up and to the side instead of supporting the shooting hand (FBI hold), there will be a certain amount of light absorbed from the flashlight. Although minimal, it should brighten up the sights even more.
