Anybody put TruGlo TFO's on a Glock G36? If so, which model?

The Truglo web site lists the following applications:

TG131GT1 for the Glock 17 / 17L, 19, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 33, 34, 35, 38 and 39.

TG131GT2 for the Glock 20, 21, 29, 30, 31, 32 and 37.

No application listed for the 36...

The TG131GT2 is what you want. I have a set on mine and they fit a glove and work like a champ.

I contacted Tru-Glo about G36 TFO sights (tritium/fiber). There response was they don't make them for the 36.

I put a set on mine anyway! Had to do some minor grinding of the front sight screw to keep it from interfering with the barrel. Just gently ground down the top a couple thousandths or so. Used a stone. Put some locktite blue on and put it together. I've shot about 500-600 rounds with it so far and no issues.

BTW, the rear sight went in just fine. They are absolutely awesome (especially for tired, old eyes like mine!) :crying:

The model number I put in was TG131GT1.

Did you have to do anything like I described when installing the TG131GT2's in your G36?

No. The TG131GT2's are good to go straight off. They have a shorter screw. It's the correct model to use.

Roger that.

I'll make sure my armorer gets the info so the next guy that puts them on a 36 has an easier time!

Thanks

Just installed a set of the GT2s on my G36. For the record, I also had to grind down the front sight screw ever-so-slightly.

About 2 minutes with a Dremel was all it took.

The TFOs are wonderful sights.

They may have run short of short screws and dropped the longer ones in there. Great sights indeed. My favorites.
