    Does anyone have any experience with the TruGlo TFO night sights? See the link below.

    All my Glocks have Trijicon night sights on them (see link below). I like them but I wonder if the TruGlos would be brigher or whicher to get on target. They seem to be brighter (of course who can tell in pics). My Sigs have the Sig Light night sights. I can't recall who makes them but they are not much, if any, different than the Trijicons.

    I really want a new Glock 21SF and am deciding if I might want to get it with factory night sights or just the regular ones and switch them out with TruGlos. Any opinions would be appreciated.

    I've always been a Trijicon person. I have the Trijicon's on my Glock 23 with the yellow rears and the green front. It's very easy in low light conditions to differentiate between the front and rear to get your focus on the front.

    If I'm not mistaken, Sig's used to be made by Trijicon, but don't take my word at 100% on that.

    My Glocks have the all green 3-dot Trijicons. I put the green & yellow Trijicons on the Beretta I have (for sale in the Classified section). I do like the contrasting color and will get this again in the future if I have the option. Some people I have mentioned the 2 colored sights have snarled their noses. I think it is a good idea and definately does help you differentiate between the front and rear sights.

    Not sure who makes the Sigs. I know when I was asking about who makes Glocks night sights I got different answers. Seems at some point in time they used Trijicons from the factory but then began making their own. Also got one opinion that MeproLight made theirs. I don't know what to believe and guess it doesn't really matter really. As long as they work well.

    I like the Trijicons. They're a quality product and made in the U. S. and A.

    I don't know where I heard it, but I believe some of the older SigLites were Trijicon and the newer (current) ones are Meprolights.

    I have a couple of sets of Meprolights and like them just fine.

    I was considering both options and still are. I like the stock look of the Trijicons, so I'll probably go with those with the different colors.
