TruGlo TFO's on G36?

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!)

The model number I put in was TG131GT1.

Question for Little Joe

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.
