View Full Version : sights for a 23

I am needing good night and day sights what do you recommend for a glock 23?

I have Meprolights on mine and love them. Green front, yellow rear works best for me. Easy to see in the day as well.

I use Ameriglo. Green dot front, dual yellow in back.

I've got a set of Heinie Straight Eights on my G23. Put the front dot on top of the rear dot and squeeze the trigger. I like these better than the Meprolights that I put on my G22.

I'm with Dr. Slots,

I have Heinie's (straight eight slant pros) on my 23 and my 32. Regular trijicon 3 dots on my Kahr but I prefer the Heinies.

I like my Trijicons on my G23.

Affordable and rock solid.

I got my Meprolights several years ago from for about $65; on sale.

The Heinies were bought directly from for about $120.

Hope this helps.

My trijicons were $70+tax including installation at my local LE shop.

Once I figured out giant white outlines dots and funky day glo colors actually seemed detrimental to my shooting I settled on Heinie's rear with Matt at CGR's race cut and a night front Heinie sight.

These new Ameriglo "Operator" ones built for Custom Glock Racing look very good though, and cheaper than a Heinie set-up I have. Need new gun just to try them out... ;)

See what you did, I been setting around here two days mulling a really good deal I have to buy a G-22C, and then you remind me how much I wanted to try the new Ameriglo Operator sights--well you can guess what happened...

I am Blueduck, I am weak... I'll let you know how I like them ;)

gotta go with the mepros. Green front and green rear. A little chunky but very durable and BRIGHT!!

This pic doesn't really do them a lot of justice but people continually ask what they look like during the day so I decided to post this one. As you can probably tell, the lower of the front two dots is just a reflection in the slide due to the angle of the pic. For more info, check out Matt at

the heinies are great, but if you even have a little problem (like i did) the customer service sucks.

Don't buy direct unless there's a significant financial savings. Buy from a distributer such as Matt of CustomGlockRacing or similar. Then, if you have a problem, you can take it up with the distributer rather than having to call the home office and face the odds of dealing with an $8 an hour coffee gopher who knows little about the parts they sell, nor the clout to make the decisions necessary to keep their customers happy.

I can second buying from a trusted source with lots of positive feedback like Matt at CGR.

To be fair I handeled a number of Blackhawk holster orders recently and was less than impressed with a small company I used (slooow service, finally gave up) went to the "Horses mouth" so to speak and Blackhawk treated us great and even fixed an order problem on my end without complaint.

Matt gets a lot of my business because he comes online here and tackles issues. Thats worth a bit of $ to me. The most espensive mess I got into online was trying to go for the cheapest price :(

i did buy from CGR, but i wanted to try the manufacturer first. CGR rocks as far as service.

Another vote for Heinie. They are the best Glock sights
