That's what I have always thought. But looking at them in a gun shop, they seem like they were kinda hard to see. They were on a Glock 27. Comparing them side by side, the stock fixed sights were easier to see in the store. Could the lights in there be the reason?
To see the benifit of night sights you need to see regular iron sights and compare them to night sights in a dark area. That is were night sights really shine. Pun intented. Also take a look at laser sights in the dark and you can make a better decision on what is best for your situtation.:secret:
I've been happy with my meprolite sights. (I think that's how it's spelled) I have them on my G23 which is my everyday carry gun. I love the fact that they glow. I can look on my nightstand and see 3 little dots all night long.
Trijicon or Meprolight. Go with one of those brands, the biggest, and you will be alright. I have heard that most brands use capsules from Trijicon anyway, but I have standard 3 dot trijicon tritiums on my G26 and love them. They are a nicer sight than the stock Glock sights, well regulated, easy to see in daylight, and absolutely glow in low light.
Expect to spend ~$100 dollars to have them installed. It is worth having someone with the right tools do it rather than risking damage to the sights doing it yourself.
