    Looking to upgrade my full service 9. Wanting to change the sights to night sights but not sure which ones.

    I picked up a gen 4 Glock 23 and I like the reset on that trigger better then the xd but I like how weight if the xd better. So I have thought about changing out the trigger. Please any recommendations would be appreciated.

    If there is anything else I should look at upgrading please let me know. I have yet to change out the striker pin going through the slide.

    Appreciate any suggestions. I have a open mind.

    JMO, don't change the trigger. Get some talon grips and some night sights. Thats all you need to change on a handgun. Can't help you on what kind of sights. If it's defensive shooting, i hear XS big dots and Trijicon HD are the best.

    I plan on carrying the pistol which makes me worried to change the pistol. But I just can't help myself from trying to find a better reset.

    I have checked the talon grips out. But are they not the same thing as sand paper?

    I forgot to mention, I have shot about 5k plus through the handgun. So I feel comfortable with it.

    Springer Precision :: The XD Specialists modified my XD9 for combat carry. Since then they have worked on several of my XD's, all to my satisfaction. I strongly recommend having the trigger modified.

    I put the talon rubber grips and XS big dots on my XD. Also added a Inforce APL light. The sights make getting on target very quick. I don't find myself focusing so much on sight alignment anymore. The light seems to add just enough weight to balance it all out. Really happy with everything so far.

    Disagree:
    Every penny I spent on my PRP trigger for my XD9 was worth it.

    I like the TruGlo fiber sights, but lots of folks say you should spring for the TFO's if you're going for a nightstand gun. I can pick up the white dots just fine after a touch-up with some Testors super-bright white enamel. No glow, just good white paint.

    As far as grips, I use black sand grip tape and it works great for me. Talon grips are fine, I just don't like the rubber as much as I do the grit of the skateboard-style tape. Really positive grip, easy to handle even when dripping wet.

    I have not felt those talon grips yet. Are they sand paper or rubber?


    What's the difference in prp and springer?
    Surprised no comments on a better barrel?

    If you go with a different trigger, go Springer or PRP. I haven't decided which one I'm going to go with yet. All I've done with mine is a set of Hogue Grips and a weaponlight. Mine already had night sights on it, but they are kinda dim, so I'm probably going to go with a set of Trijicon's or TruGlo's.

    Here is something to ponder: Do you think having a "trigger job"on his pistol would help or hurt George Zimmerman in his trial?

    I have both Trijicon and MetroGlo tritium night sights on my various XDs theMetros have a slightly larger diameter tritium rod making it larger andbrighter at night. The Metros are not the model with the optic fibers, just thetritium rods. I would recommend either. I got the Metros on Amazon for lessthan $80.

    Installation of these type sights should only be attempted with a propersight adjustment/installation tool. Banging them in and out with the ol' brasspunch and hammer is a no-no. It cracks the cement holding the rods and caneither break them outright or loosen them enough that when you start shooting,the rod goes flying and then you are looking at a little tiny black hole.
