    Sight Options and Loctite for G17C

    Okay, so I am so confused now what brand/kind of sights should I get for my G17C.

    So far I'm looking into the TRUGLO TFX PRO TRITIUM/FIBER-OPTIC DAY/NIGHT SIGHTS. Are they good? Then I saw this HIVIZ TARGET SIGHT SET FOR GLOCK. Which one is better?

    I also have a question on Loctite. Apparently there are many kinds. Which one is for Firearm Use when I install the new Front Sight?

    Thank you very much.

    My preference would be the TruGlo.

    Is the gun personal protection as well as competition or mainly competition?

    I have the truglo tfx pro on one of my g 19's and like them enough to put them on my g 43.
    But with my aging eyes they are being changed over to red dots.

    I don't use locktite on regular sights but blue on the the red dot mounts.

    @MtStream: It will be for personal protection as well as competition (beginner).

    @Otintx: Thanks for the link!

    @Gaz: Is there a need to change the Fiber Optic Rods of the TFX Pro after quite some time?

    My oldest pair is about 4 years old and no need yet. They're on the pistol I use at steel plate matches so it gets a good work out until this past summer.

    Sight Options and Loctite for G17C

    My issue with the TruGlo TFX Pro Tritium/Fiber is the length of the front sight. The result of putting them on a G17 is to reduce the sight radius to that of a 19. On a 19 it reduces to that of a 26.

    This is definitely not the end of the world. But for me the fiber still didnít pick up a lot of light when shooting indoors so I wasnít happy about giving up radius for the fiber. The orange circle stood out better than the fiber. My personal preference would be the TFX Pro night sight (no fiber) over the fiber.

    Historically, Iíve been happy with standard Glock night sights on my self defense guns - especially for the price. But since Iím also starting to deal with aging eyes Iím going to start buying night sights from Dawson with larger rear notches.

    I havenít replaced the fiber on a TruGlow but replacing the fiber on Dawson Precision sights is really easy. I would think replacing on a TruGlow wouldnít be difficult. - EDIT I forgot the TruGlow puts the fiber rod and tritium inside a tube. I donít know what it would take to replace that.

    I found a review I did on the TFX Pro 5 years ago when they first came out. Some things have changed but I think itís better information than I just posted

    Great product review MtStream! Okay, so I was wondering what the effect on accuracy will be since you pointed out that the sight radius will become shorter compared to the factory front sight.

    Did you also use Loctite when you installed the Front Sight? Also, my Gen3 comes with the Stake-type front sight. How should I remove it without damaging it? Can I re-install it should I decide to go that way in the future?

    The replacement sight, is more likely to be the screw on type, see this thread :
