You can't go wrong with Trijicon brand sights. The one you described on the gun sounds like it may be the XS "Big Dot" front sight. A lot of shooters like them, but I'm with you on this.

I replaced the standard Trijicon sights on my Glock 30 to the Heine "Straight 8" night sights. They are a little bit taller, and the rear sight has enough steel and is a good shape for effective one handed slide operation. I like the ability to clear a malfunction by hooking the rear sight on holster, belt, boot, door frame, etc., and driving the weapon forward to cycle the slide and clear. Just something to consider. I frequently have something else in my opposite or weak hand like a flashlight, radio, door handle, etc. when my weapon is drawn. Not that the Glock has issues with malfunctions or anything, just a drill to practice to get the weapon back into a fight if needed. I remember searching google images to see what they look like on my model before I ordered them.

The others are spot on with the front sight change, but rear sights require a sight pusher to properly install. I borrowed one from one of our range officers, and it was easy to do. My Glock 19 rear sight is measurably left of center, but is aligned properly for 25 yards. Strange, but Glock 19's seem to share that amoung the older ones at least. Good luck with your decision.

Thanks from hammonje

The Heine's are good, I have a set on a 19. +1 for sure.

I'm looking for some Warren's as my next set though. Got to try them out on a friend's gun and they were sweet!

Something about that "double hump" rear profile really drew my eye to the front sight ---

I have these as well and I Like them. While I realize all you need is the front in a defense situation I like having the rear also. I can see my pistol on the night stand much better in the dark...

I like the Ameriglo I-Dot sights with orange front sight for Glocks. They are not target sights. They are fast on target in both bright and low light. They are good enough for headshots at 25 yards with decent light.

Once in a while you can find deals on night sights online at Bud's Gun Shop.

[QUOTE=AKA Hugh Uno;1306598]I flat love my Tru-Glo's (Glock 17L). They are BOTH tritium and fiber-optic. You could shoot a black cat in a coal mine with them..

TFO from TRUGLO is the way to go.

night sights make it much easier to find if you drop it in the dark

I've come to prefer the Haley Strategic sights. Available in three-dot tritium or black out rear. Makes for a clean sight picture and the ledge on the rears is functional for one-handed manipulations. My personal preference is for the blackout rears on a G19.
