I had them on my old p226. Man, were they bright or what, sight picture was pretty good and sight acquisition was pretty quick too. Many glock guys love them for the look and brightness, even during the day light, they were bright as heck.


I hated them though because they looked very cheap and ugly, but on glocks they actually look very cool because of the glock's flat slide top design. I highly recommened it ! Dont put that **** on sigs though!

They are solid, and low profile. I think you will like it.

I use them on several of my guns. See how they glow with just an overhead light in my den.

They glow day and night. Really helps my eyes out...:cool2:

I installed them myself with a sight pusher.. Not hard at all.

Have them on G19 and they are very nice. They pop in daylight and in a dark room. Happy with mine.

I use 'em on both of my competition Glocks. The large bright dots work very well for me in daylight and they're useable night sights, hard to beat that combo.

Wow, you sure like to have FDE's on your frames. I see like 5 of them on that picture alone! If I may ask, where do you get your work done? Duracoat or cerakoke? Thanks!

Thanks....The answer is neither. My glock frames came from the glock factory that way. They call it OD.. for Olive Drab. Not a paint but cast polymer. Glock discontinued OD frames more than a year ago. (summer before last?)

I collect Glocks in Olive Drab and have 13 of them.

Be well, Bob

I agree 100%. I do prefer Meprolights or Trijicon though.

I have some of those truglo's tfo's on my G19 OD Green and it looks sexy!! Love the look, how bright they are in daylight and especially night time. They might look ugly in other firearms but not on the Glocks!!

They also don't look good installed on Glock 34 or 35's :(.

I had a pair on my G17 when I used it for IDPA and three gun. They worked well and I liked them but theywere kind of sharp.

True, they will be about a 1/4" over the slide cut out. Most likely will not affect the sight, but will look a little odd.

I have a them on a XDm .40 they are as advertised. I would like a set for my FNP-45 but so far they dont make them for it.

As for Glocks I have the Truglo tritium only sights on a 27, they are bigger and brighter (a little) then the trijicon on my 19 but not as sharp (clearness of the dot).

I had them on a p226. IMHO, over rated and cheap. Poor in tranisitonal lighting. Stick with Trijicon or meprolight.
