Where TRUGLO excels is their combination Tritium and fiber optic sight. This eliminates the shortfall of the fiber optic sight, which is needing a light source to shine through the sight to illuminate it. When you have your own light source – the tritium – you eliminate this problem.
The pros of Truglo Tritium Pro:
Ameriglo produces sights for handguns only. You can choose from fiber, tritium or optic. What I like most about AmeriGlo is that you’re not limited to one style sight. Many of the manufactures on this list only have one or two styles of sights. Most common is the front sight with a single-color dot and a white outline. The rear sight has the U shape with the colored dot on either side. There is nothing wrong with that. It works.
The pros of Ameriglo Sights:
Meprolight has a night sight, it’s called FT Bullseye. It’s a rear sight that does not require a front sight at all. It’s a combination of tritium and fiber optic, so again, it illuminates itself. As you aim, you’ll see a dot, and when you are on target, you will see a ring around the dot. It’s similar to lining up your front and rear sight.
The pros of Meprolight FT Bullseye:
Not everyone likes the same style sight. Not everyone feels the way you need to line up some sights is intuitive. Most sights have you line up the dots leaving the appropriate amount of space on either side and making sure you have it lined up top to bottom as well.
The pros of XS Sight System Night Sight:
Trijicon is one of those companies that has a history of being in the worst places. Not business-wise or having bad PR. What I means is that they are trusted by law enforcement and the military, so they are used in places most of us are lucky enough to never need to experience. That being said, Trijicon offers a large array of scopes and sights. Their night sight offerings are your standard front blade sight and the U-shaped rear sight. However, something that stands out, or rather gives you a better field of vision is their front sight. It’s thinner, but has a large dot and surrounding colored area for easy target acquisition.
The pros of Trijicon Night Sights:

Let’s talk about sights in general. Iron sights are the system of shaped alignment that assists in aiming. They are usually composed of two components, a rear sight mounted perpendicular to the line of sight and a front sight that is a post, bead or ramp. The best thing about sights on your Taurus 44 is that they can be enhanced. Enhancing your sights improves your aim and target acquirement. Low vision or stress can compromise your ability to aim and that’s where enhanced sights come to play.
While target shooters generally prefer a matte black finish to their sights, to reduce the chance of glare and increase the contrast between the sights and the light bars, black sights don't offer good visibility with dark targets or in low light conditions, such as those often encountered in hunting, military, or self-defense situations. A variety of different contrast enhancements to the basic Patridge type sight and others have been developed to address this deficiency. The contrast enhancement of the front sight has to be somewhat larger compared to the contrast enhancement(s) used for the rear sight if all contrast enhancements should appear about equally large from the shooters perspective. There are multiple types of sights, such as.
This is a very basic enhancement. A bright white dot painted on the front sight near to top of the blade and a dot on each side of the rear sight notch. In low lighting conditions the front sight dot is centered horizontally between the rear notch. Sometimes the coloring can differ.
The contrast element in tritium sights for your Taurus 44 consists of small vials of tritium gas, whose radioactive decay causes a fluorescent material to glow. The tritium glow is not noticeable in bright conditions such as during daylight however. As a result, some manufacturers have started to integrate fiber optic sights with tritium vials to provide bright, high-contrast firearms sights in both bright and dim conditions.
Fiber Optic Sights
The basics of fiber optic sights for your Taurus 44 are short pieces of optical fiber for the dots, made in such a way that ambient light falling on the length of the fiber is concentrated at the tip. That makes the dots slightly more visible than the tip. This method is most commonly used in front sights, but many makers offer sights that use fiber optics on front and rear sights. Fiber optic sights can now be found on handguns, rifles, and shotguns, both as aftermarket accessories and a growing number of factory guns.
Aiming your Taurus 44 correctly is a thing you have to master in order to perform better. The major keys to aiming and effective target hits are properly aligned sights, proper sight picture and little movement while you are on target. The hat of the battle or any dangerous situation may cause your aim to be worse, but practice makes perfect.
Aiming consists of two major elements, sight alignment and sight picture. The goal is to get the point of alignment equal to the point of impact. Sight alignment relates to the rear and front sight. Simply, the eye must be lined up with the Front and Rear Sights and the sights positioned so that the alignment is correct. Proper sight alignment of the two sights means that the TOP of the Front Sight is vertically centered in the NOTCH of the Rear Sight, so that there is an equal amount of white space on either side of the Front Sight post. It also means that the TOP of the Front Sight is LEVEL horizontally with the TOP of the Rear Sight. Of course, there are many different types of sights, but this general alignment concept works for all types of sights whether the front sight is a blade or a small or large dot and whether the rear sight is an open sight, two dots, U-shaped, V-shaped, or a simple notch in the back of the slide. No matter how the sights are configured, the front sight is designed to be placed on the same vertical axis as the rear sight.
Errors in alignment may be:
Don’t forget to use your eyes. This may sound silly, but using your eyes properly (using the dominant eye) is a key figure. The NRA suggests that it’s best to shoot with both eyes open. Sometimes of course, you get better results with the use of your dominant eye.
Sight Picture is the placement of the properly Aligned Sights on the Target. This is a short and throrough guide that you can use while determinig your dominant eye and thus improving the performance of your Taurus44
If you are a right-handed person but your left eye is your dominant eye you don’t need to worry. The simple and effective trick is to move your head slightly to the right while aiming. You can then better align your dominant eye with the sights.
Once you have your Front and Rear Sights in the proper relationship to each other, the question then is “Where do you place the sights in relation to the target?” What is the “Sight Picture?” Do I put my Front Sight in the middle of the bullseye, at the bottom of the bullseye, at the top to cover-up the entire bullseye, or where? The answer is it depends. Guns which are sighted in for a Combat Hold mostly require the shooter to place the Front Sight where it covers the exact center of the target (Center-Mass Hold), while guns sighted in for a Target Hold usually get their accuracy when the Front Sight is aligned at the center of the bottom of the bullseye (Six-O’Clock Hold.) Self-Defense handguns usually (not always) use the quicker but less precise Combat Hold. There are several variations and personal preference plays a key role.
Have you ever wondered how to improve your aim and accuracy with your Taurus 44? You can find it out below, but beware, there are some physics involved. Each firearm has a specific weight. This is the weight in your hand. Now add the weight that is needed to fire your 44 and you have a equation where these are compared. Let’s say that your firearm weighs 2 pounds and the trigger finger force is 12 pounds for the first shot and 5 pounds for subsequent shots. This means the force is more than the weight and we are getting to the conclusion - the gun will move. if the gun moves during the firing sequence, the shot will impact somewhere other than where it was originally aimed. This is a pretty simple concept. But how do you solve the problem? The answer is easy. Press the trigger and don’t pull it. This will end up in not moving your gun and this improving the aim. The best practice to learn it is dry fire practice.
