    Can one of you guys with TFX Pro sights post a picture in a low light setting? I'm having a hard time believing that the small tritium vial generates enough light to power the fiber optic rods effectively. The combo seems ingenious, but would like to see how it looks before dropping $$ on a set. Thanks!

    Are we talking low or dark? The tritium vial doesn't power the fiber optic, the fiber optic is brightened by ambient light, meant for daytime, outdoors its super bright but if you are in an indoor range or a room the light source needs to be fairly close to overhead to "brighten" the fiber optics, in darkness the tritium glows same as my other pistols - I can try to snap a pic of my PPQ if you'd like but let me know what type of lighting you want -

    So looking at a diagram of the sight, the tritium vial sits "behind" (closer to muzzle) the fiber optic rod (closer to shooter). You are not looking directly at the tritium vial, because it's placed behind the fiber optic rod. So, to "see" the tritium, you are looking through the fiber optic rod i.e. the light from the tritium vial is transmitted through the fiber optic rod. Does that make sense? So a very low light or total dark pic of the sights would be awesome to get a sense of how effective this system is.
    Thanks!

    Here are pics I posted on another forum of TFX pros on my Springfield XDE. At night it looks just like the NS on my Shield or the standard Mepros on the H&Ks. Same thing at night.

    I don't think you can beat the LE package night sights for the price of the overall package and from what I have read and experienced, they are really good.

    If you don't go that way, my personal favorites are Trijicon night sights.

    Completely 'effective', the Fiber Optics pick up light from above and the sides, Tritium is for darkness where it glows, they're the same brightness as my HDs or Meps in complete darkness.

    Thanks @WolfieRules The pic @GLADIAT0R posted corroborates this! I just picked up the set being sold here on the forum, so kinda excited to try them out.

    Yeah the TFX Pros are incredible.

    Today I purchased a VP9 LE and VP9SK LE for the extra mags and the fact the night sights are factory and they are identical to all my other sights...but I will say that the TFX Pros overall are better sights and i would highly recommend them.
