If you start doing much training manipulating the slide one handed by hooking the rear sight on a belt, pocket, hard table edge, etc. you'll break a bunch of Glock plastic rear sights. Better replace those first.




You vary well maybe right, I have never tried any of that stuff.

I have Meprolight True Dots on all my Glocks. They are getting dim after 15+ years, but the are still good sights.

Funny. as both my SIG P250 and P320 came with Trijicon night sights. Plastic sights on a pistol touted for self defense

I have Trijicon HD Night Sites with Orange Outline Front

I have to agree with the Warren Tactical recommendation. I had a set installed one of my Glock 19's and it has proven excellent. Not only are the exceptionally rugged, they are also very easy to pick up and track........even for someone old enough to have developed what I call "Mature Vision".

Dov, I've changed sights on two Glocks now. One with Novak's on a G22 and one with the Ameriglo's mentioned above on a G17. Both shot spot on elevation wise and needed only slight drifting of the rear for windage. There was only one height available in either and they worked fine. Maybe I just got lucky or something...

I believe the deep U notch exposes more of the front post quicker for faster sight picture. It's the bright photoelectric dot on the HD Trijicons that really make them shine. I have these sights on several Glocks and SIG's. Every set is zeroed for elevation. Close enough for me, anyway. Orange is good, but Yellow is better for a wider range of conditions, I believe--even if the "yellow" looks kinda green.

15 minute change at home if you're handy at all.



If you swap sights on Glock are they usually close to previous ones?

Will getting new ones zeroed just be fine tuning, or are they likely to be way off?

I've been thinking of getting tool(s) for swapping Glock sights, night sights on the first Glock 26 I got are getting dim. Plus between me & gf we have 5 or 6 Glocks.



You'll want the proper size sights for the caliper/model Glock you're changing sights on.

Also a front sight tool would be handy.

I don't have one or a rear sight pusher, just basic hand tools.

Tools and recommended sight height info is available on the Glock web page.

Only you know your skill level with hand tools.

+1 on the tru=glow tritium sights.

+1 to Slim 40 post. I have the Hackathorn's on most of my Glocks and love them. Ken had the idea for people over 40 that need a little help. I also like the idea Dave Spaulding had with his Ameriglo CAP sights. I have not shot the CAP sights but may put a set on a Glock to see how they work.
Slim40 Posted - February 13 2016 : 12:31:22 AM
I recently bought and installed a set of Ken Hackathorn designed sights made by Ameriglo. Great sights! The front has a large dayglo orange dot with a green tritium insert. The rear is serrated black. The rear sight notch is wider than most so you get a good deal of light on each side of the front post. Very fast sight aquisition but might not be the best for bullseye...

I would recommend these, around $70 from Brownells.

I am also a fan of the Ameriglo sights, I like the orange outline/tritium front with the "Pro Operator" rear sights.

The CAP sights are good as well.
Nobby42d Posted - October 24 2015 : 03:04:47 AM
Trijicon HD Night Sights. Great big orange or yellow dot with bright tritium. Even my eyes can pick them up. Large post,deep rear U shaped notch.
TIP: I find yellow a little better for more light conditions, but I have and use both. Have them on all my Glocks and all the Sigs that I'd carry.
bandaidman Posted - October 23 2015 : 12:34:39 AM
Didn't Spaulding also contribute on ATS sights also? I put a set on my 45 XD and I really like them.
mac7mac Posted - October 21 2015 : 7:36:56 PM
+1 on the Spaulding CAP sights. Very fast acquisition for my old-guy eyes.
Olddog84 Posted - October 21 2015 : 07:26:51 AM
I have become a big fan of the Ameriglo CAP sights designed by Dave Spaulding and have them on all of my carry pistols.

I like the Hex-Site from Goshen Enterprises. I belive Glock is one of the few pistols that don't need to be sent to have the sight fitted.
PJS Posted - October 20 2015 : 6:01:20 PM
I'm thinking of Vickers tactical plain rear with gold bead front sight- I am such a sucker for good advertisements!
wolfgang2000 Posted - October 20 2015 : 2:01:11 PM
I'm a fan of Mepro light true dot sights. All my Glocks have true dot sights.

Also welcome to the board.
