After contacting every sight manufacturer with a request for better front x rear sights for my Ruger PCC9 (Model 19100), for over one year, and being dissapointed with the lack of options, decided to make/adapt my own!
With a recent Front/Rear sight upgrade to my Glock 26 Gen4, with a set of Tru Glo TFX PRO Fiber Optic x Tritium sights, (recommended by Dane on M*CARBO Forum), I decided to “TRY” to go with the same for my PCC9.
The new sights are NOT a direct fit and took some modifying on my part…but it was easy after thinking about it for a few months and looking at many options and parts.
The Tru Glo Day/Night model is: TFX PRO
TFX GLOCK LOW SET PRO ORN
NOTE: These sights are intended to be used on a Glock Handgun.
The Warranty on these sights is 12 years.
Purchased at Optics Planet for $115.36 including shipping.
The Tritium/Fiber Optic light tubes are Hermetically Sealed, protecting them from gun solvents. The outer housing is CNC steel with “FORTRESS” Finish.
No light exposure is needed from the sides…a good feature with protected sight ears up front.
Standard exposed Fiber Optic light tubes are broken easily, and vulnerable to gun cleaning solvents.
The lighting configuration choice used is all green with an orange circle or “focus lock ring” up front around the front sight end tube.
This model sight system does not need a lot of sunlight to brighten up.TRU GLO makes an impressive and high quality sight system.
With my iPad, pictures of the front and rear sights will not focus on both at the same time…but they are bright and clear for these eyes.
The new rear sight sits on the Ruger Elevation/Windage Mount so it’s fully adjustable. The sight replaces the Ruger round Peep Sight or Ghost Ring.
The rear sight also has a favored U-Notch for quicker sight acquisition.
will upgrade pictures and make a “how-to” instructions if enough people would like to try this upgrade.
BETA Field testing is next…
Here’s what the Ruger Ghost Ring/Peep Sight displays the fiber optic front sight…it’s like looking down a dark tunnel…
