What should be one of the first handgun sight upgrades you should do to your pistol? Accuracy is key when shooting of course! If you are unable to see your sights you will have a difficult time having any accuracy. Changing out your factory iron sights on your pistol or handgun with something brighter, larger, or easier to see is one of the first upgrades we see people make to their handguns. Pistol sight upgrades are an easy way to increase accuracy, especially in low light situations.
By doing a simple handgun sight upgrade you may be able to get on target more quickly, increase your accuracy, and more. Not to mention the better look of your gun!
Almost any brand of pistol or handgun can be upgraded with sights from brands like Truglo, Ameriglo, and many others. Most of these sights can be found in our store at Destination Tactical or on our eBay store.
Truglo specializes in fiber-optic sights which are bright, easy to see, and don’t obscure your field of view. Their motto is “TRUGLO – When Brightness Counts”. There are different categories of their sights depending on their use.
For daytime use where brightness and accuracy is key for competitive shooting the FIBER-OPTIC Pro is your best solution. This is Truglo’s brightest handgun sight upgrade that reflects light into a channel to push the most light into the fiber optic.
If you are not competitive shooting but want a reliable, long lasting sight upgrade we recommend the standard FIBER_OPTIC sights for your build.
For night time or low light situations TRITIUM is the way to go! TRITIUM PRO sights by TRUGLO are the brightest sights in the world and glow for 12 years without needing any light exposure. No batteries, service, special treatment, or anything extra is needed. The Standard TRITIUM sights have a few differences in features from the PRO models but still keep their brightness for 12 years and also have the 12 year warranty.
If you want the best of both worlds, check out TFX™ and TFX PRO. These are a great handgun sight upgrade that combines a fiber-optic and a tritium vial in a patented capsule design to create a sight that is bright at night, and increases in brightness when exposed to more light. TFX PRO is the leading edge of tactical handgun sight design.
AMERIGLO is a great handgun sight upgrade option. They are committed to manufacturing the highest quality tritium, painted dot, fiber rod, and custom OEM iron sights for the modern hand-gunner. With the largest selection of set options for leading firearm brands, AMERIGLO brings a clear advantage to your shooting experience on and off the range.
