TRUGLO TFX Pro's on RAP's

I was having a difficult time acquisitioning the target at anything more than a snails pace with my 59 year old eye's so I just had TRUGLO TFX Pro's put on both pistols. The sights are not as bright in the pictures as they are in real life but they show the improvement over the white dots.

I'm thinking I can sell the stock sights in about 200 years to recoup some of the cost.

Wish I could afford them, I guess I'll just stick with my laser for now.

I have the same TFX sights on my SR1911CMD. I absolutely LOVE them. They made a HUGE difference.

Yeah I searched the internet for the best price. I don't think I would have paid the manufacturers suggested price.

They certainly do make a huge difference. The stock front sight seemed to disappear on me sometimes. They work wonders in a dimly lit room too.

Low-light conditions is really where these sights shine (pardon the semi-pun). They are fantastic in the dark

Good choice. I like TFO sights. Useful and visible.

Nice set up ya got there for sure.

I have TruGlo TFX on my carry CZ's. Love em. Fantastic visibility day or pitch black night. I like the sight picture and they tightened my grouping up.

Yeah DC there just didn't seem to be anything much else on the market worth getting. I looked at the Hiviz but they didn't seem as protected as the truglo.

As a side note I really like the Cleaning mat you have there. The only one I've been able to find and pick up for the RAP just has a picture of the pistol on it with no exploded view. I'm waiting.

I've had the tfx sights on my xd mod2 for about a month and absolutely love them. Good choice.
