Default Nite sights, tritium, or none of the above

Considering adding nite sights to a Glock 43. What do you like and what have you used that works well? Thanks in advance for any helpful information.

Meant to include fiber optic in the title.

Night Fision brand tritium night sights. They're the brightest and most-durable out there.

My sig came with Tritium sights. They are nice and bright and are easy to see in darkness as well as sunlight/shade combinations. I have fiber optic on several other set ups and I like them unless it is completely dark.

Wife’s new P365 has the night sights. Harder to pickup in my option compared to the regular sig sights. I’ll get used to it. It’s a bad ass little rocket if she ever lets me shoot it

Ameriglo TCAPs are my favourites. Tritium front, black rear with a bar. I can run classic 3-dots pretty fast but always take a red sharpie to the rears.

Ameriglo CAP sites are my favorites too... They help you focus on that front site...I prefer the ones that the front site has an Orange outline with the green trim insert in the site

Yeah, I also prefer the orange, that was just the first pic I found. In retrospect I should have found a pic with the orange front, it's a key feature IMO.

​​​The TCAPs have a bit thinner front than the standard CAPs but that's really personal preference; they're both great sights.

The trijicon HDs are a similar concept and I like them as well.

On my various old 3-dots that I am too cheap to replace, I paint the front post orange, and dull down the rears with a sharpie, to approximate the CAP/HD setup. It works pretty well but the CAPs are a step up.

Yeah, leaving the factory sights on a Glock is like leaving the family pictures that come in a picture frame. They're great dovetail protection though.

I joke but I actually like the fact that Glock puts two cent sights on their guns...I rarely like factory sights so why should they spend thirty bucks making sights I'm going to replace anyway, and increasing the price by a hundred? It's a fair deal.

My Shield came with night sights , they work great . Surprised me unaligned I was when I sighted in the dark - difference between where I thought I was pointed on a natural draw to where I was . All my pistols will have them now . A light is real handy for the one near the bed .

Trijicon on my 43. Orange shows up better for me in the daytime.

XS Big Dots are my favorite for little concealed carry guns. You're not trying to shoot a 3 gun match, just get hits on target first within about 10 yards.

I looked at these yesterday and almost bought them. What do you like about them? Quick acquisition?

I'm having these big dots put on my shield as we speak, I'm doing because my sight sucks.
