What sights for my g34?

Currently I have four glocks, and my 19, and 23 have the same ameriglo I dot pros on them.

I still have a 17, and a 34 that need sights. Both of these pistols are primarily competition pistols, but the 17 also doubles as a night stand gun.

I'm pretty sure I'm putting more ameriglos on the 17, but what about the 34? How much difference would I notice between the ameriglos and warren tactical competition sights?

I have Slant Pros on my 35 all black, but I just put a front sight with the red plastic insert and is a big difference, haven't try this combination at the range yet though.

I have the original sights on my 34.
Seem to work extremely well.
Love the Glock sights.

I like the Glock factory night sights on my carry guns. I would recommend keeping them all the same.

I shoot much better with a thinner front sight.

Im having the same issue. I generally say I hate my Glock 34 sights but I need to take into consideration my 66 year old eyes because Im sure its more the problem.

Im going to take a look at some reflex options. I only use it to make holes in paper.

The cost is another concern reflex can get pricy but if I go with optional front and rears I don't think it will resolve my focus issues.

Me too! I use a Heine Straight Eight rear, plain black rear w/.140 notch and a Dawson .115 wide FO front on my competition Glocks 34/35. Fast and accurate!

I've got the Dawson Precision adjustable rear (green fiber optic) with the .300 tall .100 wide (green) front sight on the 34 I use for IDPA, and it's very thin, and awful nice. I pity my hand on the day I rip my skin open on it... the back is cut sharp where it meets the slide, so when it's raised a little, there's a gap that's eventually gonna catch me. (In the spirit of full disclosure, ten thousand rounds or so, and it's never happened once... but I can tell it MIGHT happen one day.) But it is the fastest sight. Natural and easy to see and therefore very, very accurate.

I've got the non-adjustable set on my Advantage Arms .22lr conversion slide and they might be better, if you're using it for daily stuff.

I like adjustable sights, and Dawson makes some good ones. For IDPA/USPSA I'm sure they're fine. I had a Bomar rear on a pistol that I managed to break off while doing malfunction drills in a pistol class. Fortunately, it was a stainless gun so the blood didn't damage the finish.
