Would like to get an opinion/ poll with fellow glockers. Have you guys retained the original sights? Is it sturdy enough? Well, in very low ligh situations, its sometimes hard to acquire the white outline and was planning to change to meprolight or trijicon or something else. What adjustable sights can you guys recommend?

replaced my front and rear sights as soon as i got my FA from Trust Trade, replaced it with Glock Night Sights. Cost me 5K for both sights.

IMO, the first and best upgrade to a Glock is night sites, be it adjustable or fixed. I don't know how long the original plastic sights will last but i guess it should last long if not abused. Go ahead and get night sights you'll be happy you did.

I swapped the stock front sight on my G19 with an XS Big Dot sight, but I retained the original adjustable rear sight. I find this setup easier to acquire both in daylight and reduced light compared to when the XS rear sight is also installed.

YMMV.

I havent really tried fiber optic sights but are they good enough in low light? I had the impression that trijicon type sights were better? Your comments please. Is the Dawson or the XS adjustable sights or fixed?

tritium is better in low light than fiber.

trijicons are considered the best and most expensive.

Here is the address for the XS sight system --> http://www.xssights.com/

I don't know if they offer adjustable rear sights now, but the ones I got were fixed.

Concerning low light, even though you may have night sights installed on your firearm, you still need to identify if the person you are about to shoot is really a threat. Hence, the need for a decent flashlight, which by itself may negate the need for night sights.

Changed the sights of my G17 with Novaks. My G17 shot low on all loads I tested. Put back the original sights and solved the problem.

do any of the local gunsmiths like tony pascual or metrillo or balolong manufacture drop-in steel sights for glocks?

i'm interested in a 3 dot confign, not necessarily tritium.

another thing, are the glock night sights user installable?

thanks again guys.

I think all sights require a gunsmith to install to really fix them neatly and tight. unless one is an expert with those punch tools.

if you do a search on GT forum specially on General Glocking, some have installed their night sights themselves without going to a gunsmith. In my case however, i had my night sights installed last month at Force Sight in Ali Mall for a small fee. IMO, better safe than sorry... :)

the dawsons are adjustables, its not recommended for low light, i use it only at the range, the xs are fixed, kahit nakahiga ka or on the move you can hit a human size target at 10 meters, problem is i cant hit a can of coke 12m onwards, the front is too big.

I know it has been very popular for a defense gun to use fixed sights. My aprehension here is that although windageis adjustable by drifting the whole thing, the sight cannot be adjusted for elevation. Have you guys never as in never had difficulty in elevation on your shots with your glocks? Since the g26 has adjustable easily breakable rear sights, I needed to do 1 to 2 clicks to elevate the shots at 20 meters, so my concern on elevation if say I purchased a meprolight or trijicons or even the fixed glock tritrium rear sights....

I found a meprolight adjustable rear sight, which looked like a bomar. Anyone know if this can fit a g26?

jimbullet,

I have no idea on whether the Meprolight you found will fit a G26. Doesn't the package of the sight indicate what gun it can be used for?

Also, all of my Glocks have adjustable stock rear sights (non-tritium) since I like to be able to correct problems with both windage and elevation as precisely as possible.

You might want to stick with fixed sights for a carry gun. The rationale is that fixed sights are more sturdier than adjustable ones in a carry gun which could be subjected to abuse.

The meprolight adjustable sights had in one website say that it fits all glock models but another "Glockmeister" says it does not include g26s.... I just got kinda confused there

jimbullet,

just my 2 cents, you dont need windage and elevation on a defensive gun, if you install it properly, zero sya 15-20m, sometimes 25m sa elevation, most of them are drop in so no need to file, adjustment ng windage via allen wrench before you apply loctite, most handgun shootings occur 3m-10m, at 25m, youll see me running away
