    What kind of sights/optics/lasers/flashlights/? has any of you added? Anything you prefer or dislike specifically. Just curious. You see a lot of pictures with lasers and flashlights on handguns on mfg's websites. It got me thinking.

    i have a streamlight m3x mounted on glock 23 output is about 90 lumens good to see whats lurking behind the corner and enough to temporary blind someone.laser is worthless because most of the laser i've played with (lasermax)wouldn't stay zeroed.

    I currently have Meprolights on most of my guns just cause I have used all of the tritium sights one time or another and the Meprolights blow everything else out of the water. Much brighter. Don't buy tritium sights in any color besides green. The orange, and red ones burn out too fast.

    My next pistol accessory is going to be a Doctor Optics red dot for my Glock.

    Most i did was an "extended" slide lock lever and a G22 trigger on my G23, trijicons, and a M3 light. i like the yellow rear trijicons for easy focusing on the green front. Not close enough to end of life to know if they really last as long as green. (Trij says they do.)

    they are tritium...apparently they use something on the order of 30% more tritium than other night sights. I don't posses the photographic competency to take a picture of them.
