Aftermarket Pistol Sights - best type/brand

Recommended Posts

So I am curious. What are folks opinions on aftermarket sights for pistols? Not optics, but normal sights. I am thinking about night sights for my Shield 9 or my M&P Compact 9.

I personally use TruGlo TFO/TFX on all my pistols. Night sights are great especially in the green/yellow combo and the FO works especially well in day light or low light (indoor). 

I'm also intrigued with the Ameriglo Combative Application sights for quick combat type shooting.

I don’t use sights for defensive shooting, but I would really like to have a set of adjustable white outlined sights for my M&P’s for target shooting. LPA makes them for Glock and Sig, but none for the M&P. I emailed them and ask for them, but they told me… No, use the worthless 3 dot sights that came on them. So now I hate them. :cheers:

I have tried all of them, my favorite and the only ones I use now are Trigicon HD, this is obviously a personal decision for everyone and to each their own but Tru Glo TFX, Ameriglo are also fantastic sights

New product from Shot

If you choose to be the TGO crash dummy, keep us posted!

On a more serious note,

My CZ SDP is equipped with Heine Straight 8s...hate 'em

CZ 75B, oem night are TruGlo (I think) still bright on my '08 model. Past 15/20 yards the front blade is a huge block.

I have an APX RDO on the way, I'm leaning RMR for defensive shooting. +50, failing eyesight both near and far.

defensive pistols have Ameriglo square yellow front, and plain,  wide notch warner site on rear.  Game pistols same rear with Dawson FO front.

The ones on sale...  They are all good and the tritium comes from the same place (... I think...Ain't sure about Meprolight... Israeli...)...  Mine are mostly that I described...

leroy.

The only thing that could possibly be worse than three dots is four dots. 🤣

I use a trijicon front with a blacked out rear. 
 

I’ll pass on the 4 dot monstrosity.

If they sell to anyone other than the maker’s mothers and grandmothers I will be astounded and that’s hard to do when it comes to seeing what people spend on gun accoutrements.

I feel your pain buddy.

I have an RMR on my 17 and it dramatically improved my groups, especially at distance. But I've put a lot of dry fire practice into it, still do. Consistent presentation and all of that. But I have been amazed at what improvement it makes at distance.  I have astigmatism, so I have to be careful I don't have the dot dialed up too bright at distance (50 yds +), but closer it's a nonissue. It;s nice to be able to simply target focus. Pick up the dot and press. Nice.

I have HD's on my G 19 and Ameriglo CAPS on my G 26 and S&W Shield. I'm happy with those choices.

When proven out a bit more, I am considering one of the Holosun RDS for my G 26 and/or my S&W Shield...maybe both. Time, and money, will tell.

Gamer guns have Warren Tactical Sevigny Competition plain black rear and fiber optic front with some combination of wider rear notch/narrow front sight.  Have a couple carry guns with the same setup.  Also have plain black Ameriglo or Dawson rear with wider notch and .125" tritium front on other carry guns.  I despise dots or outlines on a rear sight--just a distraction.   

Dawson Precision doesn't sell a plain black rear/tritium front set, but they sell each separately.

The only sights that really stood out -for me-  are the Ameriglo, iirc. They came on the shield from the factory. Outdoors they really light up.
