Tru Glo did it right with their TFO sights I think. Much more rugged as the light pipe is much better protected than other designs, although maybe not as bright. I had a set of Pro's installed on a SP2022 and really liked them.For my old eyes... I needed the fiber optic advantage. I swapped out my x-ray sights with the Truglo TFO sights front and rear.
I am not that rough on my gun, and it seems to be fine with holstering/unholstering. No issues...
I love them compared to the Xray sights, although the Xray sights are also quite fine.
Sounds like a great plan! I don't carry my Legion pistols either, so a set of fiber optic sights would work great for me too.Thanks for everyone's responses. I think the thing I missed is that the FOs are considered less rugged. The selection makes fine sense in that case.
I have not deluded myself into thinking I am that rugged (yet), so I'll be swapping my front out for the same TFO that's on my P226. I REALLY like how much better it shows up (most of my shooting is at the outdoor range here). Plus, Sig offers them as a front only, so I don't need to buy a whole set (I don't mind the rear XRAYs at all).
I actually am planning to EDC my 229. However, I am willing to chance breakage of the TFO (with a Lasermax GR as backup and the stock XRAY floating as a swap) for the ease of shooting outdoors at the range with it.Sounds like a great plan! I don't carry my Legion pistols either, so a set of fiber optic sights would work great for me too.
I love it when "older folks" talk about their eyes. I'm squarely middle aged, but my vision hasn't been correctable to 20/20 since I was in my teens. I just barely got a waiver for the military.Legion has the X-Ray sights. I am 62 and wish they where even bigger for my tired old eyes.
