What is you opinion of putting on good auming target sights on the CW$45. I'm thinking something like Tru Glo. I realize it's not ever going to be a range shooting gun but I thought with the longer barrel, rather than the something like a CM9, it might be better to three button sight it than the Big Dot XS. Now the CM9 I'm thinking eventually I'd get the XS sight.

Tru glo's are great also..........had a set of the Tru Glo TFO's ( tritium fiber optic ) on a springfield XDsc a year ago and really liked them............I think your reasoning for what your gonna do there is sound.........if you do it, you will be very happy !!!

It's so hard for the inexperienced (me)to decide on the sights. Lots of questions in my mind about which ones,Glow, dot the i, SX, differ color front to back, dark back, low profile, paint, fiber optic, brass, titanium, gold, no sights, etc. Much too expensive to just jump and buy whatever.

I think fiber optics sights are neat but every bow sight I've had the fiber has broke.

If you can see what your shooting at you can see your sights, if not there's always your light.

I don't have a light but beginning to think I should. They are so damn expensive - for a light for crin out loud. The Novak and truglo look they are well protected. I can't imagine breaking those. Do you know how you broke them? I suppose they are closed in because they are self illuminating?


Ron - Perfect??

The tru glos are pretty well enclosed in a channel like mount, so they are actually well protected.........

So Toney. you hand carry the light and not attach to the gun. If so, that is what I would do. What is the one picture of that shows one object? Do you online order it or is it a store available light?

Both of the lights came from bass pro.
It is a bow and arrow sight, with the fiber optic out where when it gets old it will snap like a twig. The color also fades. The bow sight are pretty bright, the shrouded pistol sights have to be at the right angle to the light to work.

thanks, I would never have guessed what it was. The light? I've been half way paying attention to lights and from what I've seen they are high dollar and everybody talks of Lumens and light spread.

I have True Glow TFX's on two of my guns and really like them, and plan on putting them on my Kahr KP 45, These are well thought out and designed sights, presently they're on my Springfield Armory XDM 9mm and my Glock 43, 9mm, my older eyes really appreciate the vision I now have under any light condition, the TFX sights fiber obtic's are well covered and protected, they are low profile for ease of draw and not catching on your clothing for concealed carry, these are day and night sights, not like a lot of the fiber obtic sights offered today, I highly recommend them, they cost more, but they are well worth it, IMHO...

Does anyone know if those are available for a glock 42?
Contact the sight company to find out for sure, but I believe them to be the same as for the Glock 43.
