3/8 thinwall I believe

NVM guess it's been too long since I did a front sight.

I think it's closer to 7/32, must be a thinwall, or hit it with the grinder.

It's 3/16", but I agree with the guru -- not really worth it. But, if you are committed, see http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1305107 . If you buy your sights from the right source (like Ameriglo), they will give you the tool.

Electronics nut driver, 3/16th, grind it thin if too thick or get a front sight tool.
