    Is the front dot larger than the stock Glock front dot? I like how it's a tad smaller than my PPQ

    What sights are in that photo? Those look nice, I'm looking for an all around sight which would be good both in the day time and night that's what initially drew me to the TFOs but those look a little more dialed down which I like

    I just installed the I-dots with orange front on a 19 and 26. Went on easily with the MGW pusher. I also like the Hackathorns and have them on a Shield, but actually had trouble finding them in stock for the Glock. I also ordered a factory set from Glock as a back-up and for $57, they are a good deal. I'd probably black out the rears.

    Does anyone know of any big box stores that carry a couple different ones? Just to kind of compare in person what the size of front dots are? I haven't seen any at my LGS or Academy, chances are no one has them in store but worth a shot.

    I'm not sure on measurement, but the fiber dot looked huge when trying to actually shoot accurately. It was fine for fast, but past 15 yards I didn't like them at all.

    +1 on the Trijicon HD night sights...
    I'm about to outfit every pistol in my rotation with them.

    Didn't we just have to tell someone else this not long ago? :cool:
    Of 5 sidearms in the carry rotation, I sport this one (G23) 50% of the time. Just right for the job.

    They're not exacto X ring sights, but they're A zone all day and night..and faster than you might think.

    The 41 doesn't get carried. HiViz FO tube front and stock rear. This gun will consistently shoot 2+ inch groups at 25' offhanded if I do my part. Tighter than that with good ammo.

    I've been very happy with these sights. Best ever on a Glock.

    Just got a set of Trijicon HD's w/ Orange front for my G17. This is a HD gun, not compition, so I wanted a big/bright front site. It does that well.

    I have Ameriglo fiber optic front/plain black rears on my G19. This is my HD/carry/competition gun. The sights serve all my purposes very well and cost less than $50.

    I like the OEM nightsights and Meprolights(basically the same). I like a 3 dot setup. Very easy to spot during the day, and they're bright as hell at night.

    Trijicons on my 17, 19 and 30, XS Big Dot on 26. Strangely I really don't love Glocks, they are just really good tools so I have several and shoot them pretty well.

    I've Truglo's on more than one Glock. I really like the yellow rear/green front ones. However, I just got a pistol with Ameriglo i-dots (made by Trijicon) on it and while not as bright I swear I'm faster with them acquiring a target.

    Dawson Precision Chargers (FO/Black) on my primary carry gun.

    10-8 serrated rears and Warren Tactical front FO on others.

    I don't recall notch width and post height off-hand, but they were both "middle of the road" options.

    I have or have had Trijicon, Ameriglo, Warren. I prefer Trijicon but no issues with any of them. I'd love to try the Vickers sights.

    Probably going to put a set of Meprolights on mine. It's what i have on all my other handguns, so I'm going to go with consistency and what I practice with.
