I'm picking up a G26 in a few weeks and it has the plain janers on it. As much as I like them, I'm not opposed to seeing what you guys have done. I have a G19 with factory night sights and I'm not all that impressed. Let me know what you have and, of course, photos are best!

XS 24/7 Sights.

My G27 is my EDC. Quick sight aquisition is faster just like the makers of XS 24/7 says they do. At least for me it's faster thanthe 3 dot style sights.

Warren Tactical Black Rear with a Dawson Red Fiber Optic Front. I keep wrestling with putting TFO's on.

Wouldnt it be great if there was only one to choose from.....I guess they all must be good...I never here anybody cussin' any night sight....I have been wondering which sights to get, myself....does anybody have an axe to grind with a particular kind of night sight???....maybe thats a better question than who "likes" what....

Plus 2! I liked them so much on the G26 that I replaced the factory night sights on my 19. The XS system just puts you on target so much quicker than conventional 3 dot night sights, or really any sights that I've ever used on my defense guns.

I run the Heinie straight eight slant pros. Love them. I normally run the standard straight eights on my larger guns but prefer the slant pros on the subcompact.

As far as sights I had problems with. Personally I had real bad luck with P T sights. Two sets dimmed out on a 1911 I had built.

The agency I work for here issues G21SF's. We had two pistols arrive with dead front night sights and a third go dead some months later. These were factory Glock night sights.

If you can find them in your local gun store, you can see which ones work best for you.

All my guns either have Trijicons or Meprolights. We had PT Night sights on our duty Glock 22s and they sucked. When we switched to 31s, we went with Glock stock night sights, not sure if they were supplied by Mepro or Trij, but they work fine for us.

I take that back, on one of my HKs, I have AmeriGlos and they work fine too.

TroGlo TFO's.

Mixed feelings, but haven't found anything better.

The front sight suffered the infamous fate of having the fiber optic come loose, and TruGlo's customer service was crap, as I've heard was the case. However, one of their local retailers was nice enough to replace it for me (didn't even buy them there).

Also, you do lose a semi-significant amount of sight radius.

However, they just work great in any light, and I'm darn good shooting with them.

I have fallen head over heels in love with my Ameriglo I DOT Pros with the Hack front sight. They are super fast in the daytime and super fast at night, I prefer stacking the two dots more than lining up 3. I appreciate 3 dot sights but this is new for me and Im really digging it.

Ill get pics up in a few :)

Ameriglo's. But now that I've gone in for the fad, I think I actually liked the original Glock sights better - because of the white U shaped thing, and the fact that night sights are too dim to be useful in anything but total blackness (& after your eyes have adjusted to darkness) anyway. In partial light conditions, that white piece of plastic is better IMO. I think I'm going back to it.

For some reason the stock glock sights are not conducive to me shooting well. I really dont like putting the dot in the bucket. I can understand how regular night sights could be crappy during the day and hence the reason alot of people are using Fiber Optic front sights. I got the Hack front sight which is painted orange. It is wicked fast during the day, maybe look into buying a hack front for your current ameriglos :)

I had these on my G26 at one point. (all green, tho). They were OK but the sight picture wasn't as nice as with the Heinies.

I just put a Hi-Viz front fiber optic sight on my G26 that I had on my 17L which I replaced with a Dawson..
I really like the sight picture, which is almost the same as my 17L..
I made myself a lightpipe from the extra that came with the Dawson & it really lights up bright & draws your eye to the front sight..

I'm one of those oddballs that likes the stock rear sight with an Ameriglo front sight. To me, that gives the quickest orientation in low light. Perhaps it is brain fuzz, but I feel like night sights on the rear actually slow me down a tad by making me think about the three-dot alignment. Different strokes, you know.

Tru Glo on both my 17 and 27.

I use Warren Tactical/Sevigny carry 2-lamp (yellow rear, green front) on my G26. I like the sights for the way I carry that gun, and the rear lamp is dimmer than the front - they line up well for me.

I use the WTS/Sevigny carry-cut sight on a couple other Glocks I have, too.

I get my Glocks from an LE stocking dealer and he gets most of his guns with Trijicon night sights installed from the factory. That's what will be on my guns until they dim.

Right now, MMC adjustable night sights.

Thinking of swapping some Meps off of my G35 onto my G27. Will they work?

Stock rear polymer sight with an AmeriGlo GL-112 front night sight on both my G19 & G26. The sights look like the stock sights during the day, but gives me a green dot in low light. Doesn't change the POI, either.
