Many of us (including myself) sport sights costing in upwards of $100-$150 dollars. But what is out there for those who don't want to drop 1/5 the price of the weapon on just sights? Truglo fiber optic sights, 3 dots by various manufacturers, Glock steel sights, anything. . .

Just looking for some options around $30-$60. :wavey:

What would be a good combo with the stock rear sights?

Can't go wrong with the Ameriglo special combination GFT-113 for $40.
I also like the Heinie #320 for $50

Didn't you just go back to the factory Glock sights and like them?

The truglo fiber optics look interesting, but I have never tried them.

Hmm..that's EXACTLY the Sight Width Ratio on the Sevigny "Comp" Sights...and who the heck is Kyle Defoor, anyway???

Regardless, for "Inexpensive" Glock Sights, I SECOND "Ameriglo"...HTH....mikey357

Yes, and I do. But I really like fiber optics during the day and the white outline. Maybe my perfect set would be the stock rear with fiber optic front.

You're a GENIUS!

Wow, Ameriglo truly has the best sight offerings and prices I've ever seen on their website. I wish I found them long ago. Thanks!

You know that Glock makes steel (non-night) sights....right?

This is the one I have on the G38 I carry, it also has an Ameriglo tritium sight on the front.

Just sayin'. lol


But yeah, I'm going with either Ameriglo white dot front, or Ameriglo front night with with the stock rear because they're cheap, it's less weight and it's that same sight picture. Don't snap because it's not a bigggg difference in weight, but still it counts. thanks though :wavey:

Ameriglo, I like a plain black rear with tritium front.

The steel trijicon 3 dot sight set no tritium are hard to beat . The front sight is a huge white dot kinda at a angle that really stands out and rear are just regular looking dots. I think I paid 30 for a set couple years back and had a guy at the gun show put them on for 10 bucks. Not bad for 40 bucks. For anyone who doesnt want to spend alot and doesnt need night sights I cant think of a better option.
model on box shows GLO5 but mine is a model 21 glock

Do you have a set of calipers to measure those sights? I would like to know the width of the front sight and the width of the rear sight channel. For me those measurements make a significant difference in the sight picture.

Thanks!

I checked they look like 4mm front and back same as my other glock 21 trijicon night sights. The rear sight is the same sight they use for night sights just no tritium vials. They even have the symbol stamped in left side and trijicon in white paint on right side. I will take those any day compared to factory glock sights just makes it easier for my sight picture. I not a fan of wide rear sights either.

I replaced the Trijicon night sights with HiViz sights.They are not night sights but are very good in daylight.As I have aged the eyes just don't work as well as they used to. And at night or low light,that is where the CTC laser comes into play.

I don't have a set of Trijicon sights to put the calipers on. I think they are narrower than the Glock/Meprolight night sights. I'd like a steel 3 dot sight with the same dimension as the Glock/Mep sights. I have the Meprolights on 8 Glocks, so I'm not interested in changing to different dimensions. I'm going to see if I can find some dead meps.

The sight setup I have on a number of my Glocks--and one that I like very much--matches a factory Glock steel rear sight with an Ameriglo square orange front sight--highly visible under a variety of lighting conditions and far less fagile than the fiber-optic fronts. Besides fragility, F-O sights vary in brightness under varying light conditions and angles. The setup I have gives a consistent sight picture.

I have the Ameriglo Operators. The inserts in the rear sight are not outlined so they just disappear in daylight. The front sight has a white outline around it for quick and easy acquisition.

You might try this, it's free and I've been pretty happy with it.It's just the stock sight hogged out with a 1/4" rattail file and reversed in the slot. I've been thinking of a tritium front to go with it, but haven't taken the plunge yet.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v103/scattershot/IMGP4505.jpg

if your a leo/mil prior or current you can get Trij sites for 70 bucks installed at Glock licensed leo sales.Thats the only reason why i picked Trij :) Many of us (including myself) sport sights costing in upwards of $100-$150 dollars.

Would you happen to know where to look up local dealers for that?
