Default Stock night sights on PC Shield?

I am just curious. What brand and model is the stock night sights on the Performance Center Shield 9 and 40?

I have the PC with the Fiber Optic sights, I plan to upgrade to tritium night sights, I might go with trijicom.

I believe they are Trijicons. Have you looked at the Tru Glow TFX? Best of both worlds.

I have. I am still looking at multiple reviews. I might go for the truglows. While I have had no problems. I have heard some stories about fiber optics popping out. Even my father's Taurus Judge had issues with the Fiber Optic front sight. I instead bought him a standard sight.

I believe some older TruGlo pipes had issues of coming out. I run FO on every pistol and have never had an issue. I have an S&W PC Shield and changed the inserts to black in the rear and red in front to conform to my other pistol sights. I got the replacement pipes from HIVIZ. Dawson has always been a great sight company, they may have some replacement ideas.
I see the OP talked about night sights, mine has the FO sights

The fiber optics do occasionally pop out. A bit of a BIC lighter fixes that issue. I have not had that issue.

TruGlo TFX and TFX Pro's are hermetically sealed. They will not fall out.

Thanks everyone for the information/advice! ScaryWoody I'll take a lighter to the fiber optics if they do pop out during normal usage (such as at the range).

The PC Shield uses HiViz and the pipes snap in. You can go to their site or look it up on youtube to see how easy they are to replace.

Oh snap! I didn't realize the Tru Glow TFX are both FO and Tritium! These are now on my to get list! I plan to buy some range (FMJ) and defensive (JHP) ammo first to practice. Been away from shooting for a few months, as I have been in a "communist state", it is best I practice at the range first.

It's fun to shoot in low light now. I absolutely hated the stock sights.

Shop around for the Tru Glo's. They list for like $170, but I bought my TFX Pro's on ebay for about $110.
