TruGlo, Inc., is pleased to announce complete compatibility of all existing Glock handgun sight models with the new Generation 5 series of Glock pistols. “Glock owners enjoy the ability to readily customize their pistols. TruGlo is glad to continue providing great aftermarket support for the next generation of Glock pistols” said Pliny Gale, Product Marketing Manager. A leader in innovative technology for firearm accessories, TruGlo stays on the cutting edge of new firearm introductions and strives to maximize the compatibility of firearm accessories.

TruGlo manufacturers a wide variety of handgun sight technologies for Glock handguns: TFX PRO: All the innovative technology of TFX, plus a U-notch rear sight for increased speed and accuracy, a bright orange FOCUS•LOCK ring on the front sight, and a forward-angled rear sight profile to assist in emergency one-hand slide operation.

TFX: Patented tritium + fiber-optic xtreme technology, providing a 3-dot aiming system that is bright in daylight, as well as low light and complete darkness. TFX technology uses a sealed capsule design, press-fit retention rings, and Fortress Finish™ that make the sights incredibly durable and resistant to chemicals and solvents that can damage unprotected sights.

TFO: TruGlo brought fiber-optics to the shooting sports industry years ago and paired them with tritium night sights to create a consistently bright sight picture – day or night!  The combination of Tritium and Fiber-optic technologies unites the best of both worlds.

TRITIUM PRO: The brightness and durability of TruGlo’s original Tritium night sights, plus a U-notch rear sight for increased speed and accuracy, a FOCUS•LOCK ring on the front sight, and a forward-angled rear sight profile to assist in emergency one-hand slide operation..

TRITIUMTritium night sights transition from standard white dot sights in the daylight, to glowing green dots in the dark. Tritium does not need batteries and does not need to be charged with light — it simply glows!

  1. I have the new Glock 17 Gen 5 and I have the TruGlow sights from the Glock factory. I am guessing that I have the TFX Pro because I have the orange dot on the front sight. In the dark that sight turns green like the two rear sights in the back. I haven’t had a chance to shoot it yet but I really like its looks and feel. I tried the holding G19 and the G17 side by side and found the G19 to be a little small for my hand so I chose a G 17 instead. The G17 has a larger grip and holds 2 extra rounds (17 instead of 15 like the G19). I was a little concerned that the G17 would be difficult to conceal because it’s about an inch longer. However, I put it in one of my shoulder holsters and fits fine and it’s really not noticeable if you have a large enough shirt. This is my first Glock, I am normally a Sig Sauer Guy but I had studied up on these new Gen 5’s and was impressed. So far, I am still impressed.
