One of the best upgrades for our firearms are a new set of sights. Today I replaced the stock set on my new Springfield Armory XD .40cal with a set of tritium night sights by Trijicon. With sights, you can go from affordable to very expensive. I chose a $110 set and had them installed while I waited. I went over to see Morey Butler over at 10-8 Tactical in Harahan, LA to show off one of our newer project guns and bought the Trijicon sights there. He had them in stock and was able to install them right away. Of course, I like Mepro Light tritium sights as well, but 10-8 didn'y have them in stock for the XD at that time. I have Mepro Light sights on my Colt Combat Commander and never had a problem with them ever. They took a serious beating on my everyday carry gun and now I'm going to find out how well the Trijicons hold up to daily wear and tear. Next, I'll be sending the XD off for cryogenic processing. Then..... I'll be shopping for the perfect holster.
im really liking those sights john!! i wanted to get around to installing at least a fiber optic on the front sight just cause after repeated range shooting it tends to get a little dirty. but hey, nite sights work damn well also!! keep it buddy and keep me posted with the details
"its not the caliber, and its not the gun. its how well you perform, that completes the task at hand
Here's a pistol we just finished for a good customer and friend of On Target. Zack brought us his personal concealed carry weapon for an upgrade and a new look. The gun was all black from Springfield Armory and the finish was starting to show signs of wear from daily use. Zack is retired military and was an Army Ranger and a military trainer who trained Airborne soldiers in weapons, tactics and hand to hand combat. I love hearing his military stories. The man is disciplined and could kick my big ass in a second.... and he's somewhere in his mid to late fifties. Zack is the real deal and has served our nation proudly and I have tons of respect for him as I do for all who serve and have served in our armed forces. We wanted to make sure he got the best!
The XD was broken down and sent to the cryo chamber for a full deep freeze treatment. We gave the short feed ramp a four stage polishing and went to town on a special military green that we made just for Zack's gun. We ordered a pair of Trijicon tritium night sights and installed them on the slide and put it all back togather. When it was finished, we hand delivered it to him. It was worth seeing the big ass smile on his face when he saw it in his hands.
Today, I went to the range with John and was able to do some one on one training with him. I alwalys learn something new and better my shooting every time I go. John is an excellent trainer. He can pinpoint your problem and help you become an excellent shooter. To everyone out there , please take advantage of the one on one training with John at On Target . You will deffinately advance in your shooting , from unexperienced shooters to great shooters , John can allways help you to improve your shooting and take you to the level of an excellent shooter. I had the opportunity to shoot johns gun with the new sights . It was very fun to shoot plus very accurate. I hit the bullseye dead on . Thanks again John , for a great shooting lesson at the range today.
AS ALWAYS ON TARGET ROCKS!!!! DON'T MISS OUT , GIVE ON TARGET A CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!
This new Glock .40 cal came in for a few upgrades and left us better than ever. A custom OD Green was mixed up and applied to the slide so that the gun could further set itself apart from the crowded Glock scene. With the ported slide, the coating really stands out and I couldn't be more pleased with the results.
We installed a set of Trijicon tritium sights because of the strong reputation Trijicon has and the look and quality of this set of sights. I wished that the set made for Springfield XD's had the ramped look of these for the Glock. The sights were fresh right out of the box with no hint of diminished glow from sitting on a shelf for 10 years.
Factory Glock sights are not my favorite and can't compare to the Trijicon in the sight picture department. I firmly believe that installing tritium sights (or fiber optics from a quality company) is one of the best upgrades that can happen to a Glock.
