View Full Version : Glock-brand aftermarket sights not for subcompacts?

I just picked up a G26 as a companion to my G19, and I want to try 3-dot sights, but according to the Midway description, they won't go on sub-compacts, though there's no such mention on Glock's website.

Can anybody confirm or deny this allegation?

The notes say

Glock rear sights are interchangeable across all Glock handguns
Standard factory sight heights:
9mm Luger, 40 S&W, 357 Sig, 380 ACP is 6.5mm (.256")
45 ACP, 10mm is 6.9mm (.027")
A change in sight height by one increment, for example from .256 to .27, will result in a shift of approximately 2" (higher) at 25 yards, given no change to the front sight.
Glock recommends the use of their rear sight mounting tool for installation.

I dont know why they wouldnt fit. Do they have another listing for the subcompact ones, there notes section makes it totally confusing.

Yeah - what's confusing is the line of text just below the Glock logo on that page:

"Factory sights fit any Glock (except sub-compact models)."

I'll probably go ahead and get it along with some other stuff - if it doesn't go on my 26, I'll put it on my 19.
