    I just installed my new Ameriglo Pro I-DOT night sights on my new Glock build. That front sight lights up like the sun. I have never had a front sight that was so easy to acquire. Anyone else tried these? These might be my favorite night sights I have tried.

    I'd like to know how clean it stays after those ports let loose

    I think they were around $75 on Amazon.

    Cool looking sights. Do you have a build thread for the Glock?

    No, but you can see videos of the build on my YouTube channel. This is the first one.

    Anyone know which size is best for the front sight?
    Ameriglo had two sizes I think te smaller size is stock on glock is the smaller size .165?
    Is that for all glocks?

    I run the Ameriglo ProGlo front sights with plain black Pro rear sights. The fronts are green tritium with a green ring, .165 tall and .140 wide. I like the wide .180 notch for the rear sight.

    That's what I was looking to do also.
    Just get the front sight and use the stock rear.

    I absolutely love my Ameriglos. Only NS I run on my pistols other than a pair of warnes on my ole competition Glock. They might be swapped for something like this though. As I wear a tinfoil hat most of the time, I prefer all my guns to have tritium.

    The factory rear will work but for $20 you can get a much nicer rear sight. Having a wider notch and slightly longer sight radius is worth the little extra. Not to mention that you get a metal sight without the silly white outline.

    Well it's adjustable, but your right.
    I was just looking at opticsplanet.com for the set and it's only $64 for front and rear! That's much cheaper than I thought it would be.
    Might get them for all my glocks!

    I'd love to see a comparison between these sights and the Tru Glow TFO sights, your previous favorite sights.

    Well thanks a lot PB. After seeing how pretty those sights are I decided to buy some for myself.
    Which rear sight did you use?

    Looks like the Trijicon's that came new on my EXO 23.
    They have a single rear center night dot. In the dark you just put the front dot over the rear.
    I prefer this to centering the front dot between two in the rear sight.

    And in the light. That front sight really jumps out at you.
