Night Sight compare?
This is a simple FYI if anyone is interested.
I have a S&W Shield
I have a Glock 43
A while back I put Trijcon tritium night sights on the S&W
(nice sights, smooth profile, brightness in dark 1 to 5 = 3)
sightability (new word?) in daylight = 2.5)
Two day ago put Truglo tritium/fiber night sights on G43
(nice sights, lower profile, brightness in dark 1 to 5 = 3)
sightability in daylight = 4.5)
took them both into a room and closed the door for dark
effect to compare side by side at arms length. Both have
the same brightness, but the Trijcon were a "tinny" bit smaller,
yet a more SHARPER dot.
The Truglo were not as defined, but just as bright.
In daylight the Truglo was bigger, brighter, more defined.
I can't recall the price of the Trijcon (1.5 yrs ago)
Truglo was apx $125/ installed
IMHO . . .Both should be just a bit brighter in the dark.
