Pistol Sights

Does anyone know if Glock or anyone else makes these exact sights but glow in the dark?
I dont know what to search besides “Glock OEM night sights” or “Glock night sights”, so of course all i come up with are the steel 3 dot ones.

Also, general night sight discussion
Are they a gimmick? How are your tritium vials holding up? Best manufacturer for the money? Why does everyone put ghost rings on their USPs?

    Proper night sights are always 3 dots because of the shape of the tritium vials. Making the "u" shape you see on that rear sight isn't really practical to illuminate with tritium so you get the 3 dots instead.

    Yes, how bad are you at googling stuff, also, the trijicon HD sights are, and will always be, the best iron sights ever made

        Sold in countries where tritium sights are banned.
        They require charging with light before use.

          Gott verdammt. So whats an American like myself to do? I personally love the ball in bucket sight picture, but i just want to be able to see them at night.
          Should i just do what that other anon said and paint my OEM ones in radium?

            Do not paint them in radium unless you want to start glowing at night as well

    Tritium comes in small vials so you're not likely to find anything but the three dot sites. Could just buy your posted rear and repaint it with radium.
    Have a set of Meprolight sites on my G22. After 30 years they are now too faint to clearly see in the dark.

    Night sights are for temporary sight alignment before you illuminate and identify your target in the dark. Also helpful at night if you have your pistol on a table or night stand for you to grab it. I personally have the Glock OEM factory three dot steel night sights on 3 of my pistols and they do just fine.

    Night sights are useless and a gimmick. So are dots as "night sights" unless you have a WML. If you have a WML then trits will just appear as black on black anyway

        If they come free with your gun, great, but spending 100+ bucks on tritium sights is stupid

      That might be true indoors, but you can still see the glow of night sights outside even if you're using a light. I can't say if it makes any difference in shooting, but I still see the night sights, at least with these Trijicon HDs. I probably won't buy night sights again though and I'll still with fiber optic sights.

    yes

    dead to the point where it has to be pitchblack to even notice a glow.
    even when they were factory fresh and new that shit washed out when you turned on a flashlight.
    they were semi useful in low/partial light conditions but you get 5-7 years of that.
    i have 4 handguns with dead nightsights that are all over a decade old and have zero desire to replace them and refresh the tritium.
    if you are carrying a gun you should be familiar enough to aim your gun at 5-7 ft you would be at in the dark purely off muscle memory without even looking at the sights.

    Didn't see anyone else mention it, so I'm going to. Glow in the dark rear sights are god awful terrible.
    If you have your holster on the night stand, only the rear glow in the dark will be charged. This means your rear sight will jump out at you while your front sight may be invisible, depending on lighting conditions. In all cases the rear sight will end up glowing brighter than the front or they won't glow at all. If you really want that, go to a hobby store and get yourself some glow in the dark paint and a toothpick. Drill a divot dead center to hollow out the front dot, just a tiny bit and use the toothpick to fill it with glow in the dark shit, one drop at a time. Do it slow letting it dry between drops. Leave the rear sight non-glow in the dark. This will give you a better result and cost you only as much as a small vial of glow in the dark paint.

    Night sights are not gimmicks and the best ones have a large front dot with green silicone around the tritium, black silicone around the back tritium. A weapons light and irons works better because it silhouettes the sights against an illuminated target but CC'ing a weapons light is not for everyone.

    A red dot is best.

    Why are you using irons in 2024? I'm a wagie and even I got my slide cut for a red dot

      I'm waiting for the market to fully standardize on one mounting style. Slide mounted optics are still only about 15 years old, and I'm not interested in cutting up one of my slides for a specific pattern that's only compatible with some of the available optics. I know the RMR cut is a pretty safe bet, but for all I know, mounting footprints might not even exist in 15 years after the market shifts to integrated optics. I've tried handgun red dots and I think they're cool, but I don't think they're revolutionary enough for my uses to get into them yet.

    mfw my country is so cucked we can’t even buy tritium sights because it’s deemed „too dangerous“

    In a world of handgun red dot sights, how moronic would it be to design a LED front sight? This is what I'm thinking, where the "front sight" is an illuminated window and the blue circles would be battery compartments. Obviously the proportions are off.

      Meprolight tried something like that a few years ago, but it never went anywhere. The product page still exists on their site if you want to check it out, but there's barely any info about how the LED works.

    My Brother, try firing an air or pellet gun and try finding the three dots in the dark.
