1 Ameriglo Glock Ghost Ring

AmeriGlo sights are popular with military and law-enforcement worldwide, and with good reason. AmeriGlo sights strike a balance between features, ease of use, and quality materials. This makes them a reliable go-to for anyone who needs solid performance, regardless of experience level.

In particular, shooters with bifocals, “old eyes,” and SWAT will find this scope ideal, but anyone will appreciate its easy-of-use features. An angled rear reduces glare and a super-bright glow makes this sight fast and efficient. These features also make it adept at night and day performance, with an edge in the daytime.

Installation is also a snap, although it will require the use of a GTool1, which is not included. This part can easily be ordered, however. No other tools are necessary.

Some shooters have reported changes in their shooting patterns at higher ranges, so longer-range shooters might want to keep this in mind. Whether a shooter finds this acceptable will depend on personal preference. But for shorter ranges and ease of use, Ameriglo has put out a solid offering.

Ameriglo Glock Ghost Ring
Our rating:4.6 out of 5 stars (4.6 / 5)

Pros
  • Easy to install and use
  • Perfect for bifocals, “old eyes,” and SWAT
  • Exceptional brightness
Cons
  • Does not include GTool1, required for installation
  • Better for shorter ranges

2 Tru Glo TG13GL3PC Brite-Site TFX Pro for Glk 42

A sight that’s all about rugged indestructibility and fast precision, seasoned shooters will find so much to love with the TFX Pro, they may never take it out of its safe.

TFX introduces a snag-free, rust-proof, compact design. Illuminating elements are in a chemical and shock-resistant housing. TFX aimed to make it withstand “just about anything,” and it certainly appears they succeeded.

TFX also included a longer sight radius, and a white ring around the front fiber for rapid focus. This sight is quick, excellent day or night, and prevents strain. All of this either matches or beats AmeriGlo’s sight, but with additional range. Notably, there does not appear to be any variance in shooting patterns.

The downside is that it’s not easy to install, requiring a sight alignment tool and studious attention to detail. Amateurs may find themselves going to a gunsmith. However, that will need to be weighed against its overall performance. How often do you plan to adjust your sight, if it works optimally? Those who don’t care to tinker often might not mind.

Tru Glo TG13GL3PC Brite-Site TFX Pro for Glk 42
Our rating:4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)

Pros
  • Excellent day or night
  • Built to last
  • Lightning-fast focus
  • Greater range
Cons
  • Difficult installation

3 Aro-Tek Ghost Ring Sights With Aro Glow Front Sight Fits

Finding a balance between the Ameriglo and TFX offerings, Aro-Tek’s lesser-known ghost ring sights are capable and fairly simple to install. Quality materials, precision sighting, and allen-wrench adjustable rears make working with the sights straightforward.

It’s also notable that it doesn’t require a sight pusher, unlike the TFX sight. In fact, everything you need to install the sight is included. Even the easiest sight of the three to install, the AmeriGlo, requires a not-included tool, so this is quite welcome. You will, however, probably need a shooting session to verify alignment. Amateurs may also find something of a learning curve, although it’s substantially easier than the TFX sight.

Gun enthusiasts who want great features, like a Novak-style rear, Trijicon tubes, and a low profile, but also no-fuss adjustment, will find an excellent balance here. Quality is a given, and many adjustments can be made on the fly.

One potential downside, however, is it’s the least popular of the three. This means there’s less online awareness. So again, short of seeing a gunsmith, you may be on your own with any issues you can’t solve.

Aro-Tek Ghost Ring Sights With Aro Glow Front Sight Fits
Our rating:3.7 out of 5 stars (3.7 / 5)

Pros
  • Should satisfy amateurs and seasoned professionals
  • No-fuss adjustments
  • All tools for installation included
Cons
  • A less popular brand
  • Might still pose a small learning curve for amateurs

Glock Ghost Ring Sight Buying Guide

It’s more about you than the sight itself

Finding the best sight for you will require balancing your needs, expectations, and what level of convenience you expect from your Glock ghost ring sight. Top-grade materials and even performance are not necessarily concerns for consumers who are amateurs or just trying out the world of upgrades. Likewise, even seasoned professionals may prefer to have a hassle-free experience. But overall, most will gravitate towards quality and performance above all other considerations.

What type of gun owner are you?

Do you have a network of friends who like to work on their guns together? Do you have hunting buddies? Do you have experience with sights? Does your network? Do you have a gunsmith? Do you enjoy learning how to install and customize things, even if you’ve never done so with a gun before, through online tutorials? These supports will make a big difference in what experience you can expect.

What type of shooter are you?

Do you largely hunt, or own your guns for protection? Maybe you shoot for fun? This is important, because quality of materials and range will be of greater or lesser importance to you. Hunters will likely want longer range. Those seeking protection will prioritize fast, reliable sights. Performance at night will also be important to both groups, whereas casual shooters may only need good daytime performance.

It’s in these key areas that otherwise similar scopes can become fundamentally different. A few extra yards can make all the difference. And for someone who prefers hunting at night, glare reduction is useless next to nighttime performance.

How important is durability?

Durability might not seem important when choosing between scopes that are relatively all well-made. After all, a sight is a sight. But in fact, a sight becomes a part of your gun. Just as any component of your vehicle can introduce problems with other components, so can a sight. Rust resistance might not seem important, but what do you want to introduce oxidation to the rest of your gun? Probably not.

Additionally, in the off-chance your sight under-performs due to damage, when will it happen? You don’t want to grab it when you need it to realize there’s something wrong. And those are precisely the moments when you don’t have time for trouble-shooting. The optimum firearm is 100% reliable in every component. This is especially true for a component that assists your accuracy. Every other component of your Glock may work perfectly, but if you’ve come to rely on your sight, it needs to work.

Don’t forget the gun you have matters

Of course, choosing the best Glock ghost ring sight for you also depends on your model. Be sure to check the table under each listing to make sure the sight is compatible with your Glock, not just you. You don’t want to choose an incompatible model.

You may also base your choice on whether you can use the sight on multiple guns. For example, if you have more than one Glock, you might change your mind down the road. If you replace the sight on one model, a sight that’s compatible with other models may be reused.

Popularity also matters

You may also wish to factor in the brand’s popularity. Popular brands tend to breed more knowledge between users and better online tutorials. Lesser-known brands do not have this advantage. You don’t want to be stuck on one step, only to find no one on your favorite forum can help. Tutorials may also not be available on YouTube or other outlets. Customer service may also be impacted from not only the manufacturer, but also the distributors. Naturally, it also means reviews are even more important with lesser-known brands.

Conclusion

The TFX Pro is the best all-around choice. While more cumbersome, its feature set is worth it. Whether for hunting, sport, or protection, the TFX Pro will handle every need and condition.  The TFX Pro offers durability, excellent day/night operation, and great range. While its competitor’s components are well-made, TFX puts its lasting strength front and center. Why? Because they know they nailed making a functionally incredible sight. Catastrophe-resistant quality is the clincher they don’t even need.

AmeriGlo cannot boast the same range. But even if range isn’t an issue, it’s frankly one-upped, even if incrementally, in every way aside from ease of installation.

Aro-Tek, striking a balance between ease of use and features, feels like a compromise. It sounds good on paper, but in practice, anyone not comfortable with installation won’t want a little difficultly. They want none. And at least with the TFX Pro, there are plenty of online resources available. YouTube tutorials and forum posts abound.

Since for many shooters, installation will not be as important as performance, the TFX Pro walks away the winner. It would be absurd to choose a television based on how easy it is to install. The same logic applies here. Once installation is handled, which can always be outsourced, it is clearly superior. Sights are built and chosen for increasing a shooter’s performance. The TFX delivers to the point of bordering on luxury. It also gives you room to grow. If you use it only in the day, you have the option of nighttime use, for example. If you use it only for protection, you can branch into hunting, even at longer ranges.

However, amateurs or those without access to a gunsmith would do well to consider its competition. There are certainly no losers here. Just bear in mind that installation will likely be a small fragment of your time spend with your Glock ghost ring sight. For this reason, and its overall superiority, the TFX Pro is the best choice.
