trijicons are machined from solid billet steel, where as meprolight and glock brand night sites are cast. considering the cost is similar, i would go with trijicons for the durability.

my local smith mentioned to me the other day he has seen issues with the cheaply made cast night sites.

I've replaced a number of sets of older Trijicons now with Meprolights, and never had any issue with the Mepros. Some sets are now going on 8 years of fairly constant shooting and use, and still are bright and intact. I dont know if its perception, or if in fact there is a difference, but the Mepros seem to be brighter, and larger to me, even with the newer sights.

Price wise, the difference is about $20-40 a set, depending where you get them, with the Mepros being cheaper.

Not my experience at all. Meps are high quality and I have seen no real issues. Perception is that they are brighter and bigger. I'm pretty sure Glock night sights are meprolights.

Glock question?



Glock answer!

Non ported!!
