I am really wanting a set of these sights, and I was wondering what some of yall have to say about them. Are they hard to install? Does anyone have pictures of their Glocks with Heinie's on it? Any input would be nice.

The ledge sights are awesome, I had them both on my 26 and 19.

Install was pretty easy, the rear sight didn't really need any fitting just one run or so with the file and it went in fine with a push.

Cant go wrong with any of the Heinie sights IMHO

Heine are great sights and I have them on 3 of my Glocks (slant pros) but I have found that Ameriglo I DOTS are a great alternative to the straight 8 configuration. Have just put them on 2 of my the glocks and found I am more accurate with the IDots and they are configured like the ledge..One big plus is the are 35.00 cheaper than Heine and I like the white circlearound the front dot. My eye is drawn more to the front sight and that could be the reason it helped me. Won't swap out my heine anytime but if some one wants a 2.dot sight Ameriglo I Dots are now a good economical alternative to Heine and Ameriglo gives members of this forum a 10% discount

Very cool...I was also considering both Ameriglo and Heine.

Can anyone comment on the shape of the Ameriglo I Dot rear sight? I'm hoping it is like the Ledge Heine rear sight as opposed to a ramped rear sight....

It is a ledge sight not slanted. I have the pro with white circle around the front sight can buy the operators with no white circle. The rears have .180 cut and are not as squared as the Heine. The white circle on the Ameriglos help me pick up the front sight faster.
I am thinking of replacing my heine fronts with ones Ameriglo fronts but the heine are .215 high and Ameriglos have fronts that are .200 or .220. I think the .220 might work if I use POA rather than 6 o'clock like the heine which are .215.

I prefer the str8 sights but Henie makes good sights none the less.

Interesting...thanks.

So if one went with a .200 front Ameriglo sight and paired that with Pro Operator rear sight, on a Glock 19.....is that doable? You're shooting 6 o'clock, for sure, but I'm wondering if that'd be too low a front sight on a G19.

Looks pretty good to me. I just started the DROS on my G30 today and I'm looking at replacing the sights. I noticed there's no distinction for 9mm/40 guns vs 45/10mm guns like the standard glock sights have. Is the shift in POI not enough to make a diffrent set or am I just not looking hard enough?

I have the standard Ledge rear and .215 front with tritium element on my G20 and G17. Both shoot to POA.

I really like the amount of light the rear let's in around the front sight. I'm 55 and they work well with my old ass eyes.

I went with the Qwik Slant Pro rear and the above front with my G26 and no issues there either.

YMMV.
