Glock Factory Rear Sight?

I bought a Gen 2 G17 a little while back which has the factory front sight, but at some point someone put on an adjustable rear sight that I hate, it is too narrow for my taste and is canted a bit so it just drives me nuts.

Since I don't have a spare rear sight to replace it with and it looks like purchasing a new one online will cost me $5 plus shipping (close to $10 when all said and done) I wanted to find out if I can buy one at the next GSSF match I attend from the Armorer and not deal with the shipping charges? I know they will replace broken/worn out stock components but I am not sure if they will replace something that was not stock just because you don't like it.

If they don't then is there anyone here that has a rear factory plastic sight in good shape that they took off their 9mm or .40 that they want to trade for a crappy adjustable sight? Hell if you really want it I could probably tape it to a piece of paper so it wont fall out of the envelope when mailed.

rear sight

I may have some rear sights around here somewhere. You can have it if I can find it. PM me your address and I will get it out to you.

I appreciate that Chris, PM sent and you should let me pay you for shipping at least... I was hoping someone would pop up with a definitive answer to my question first and then if the Armorer couldn't do that then resort to begging for someone to trade me.

Most excellent! I have only ever had them replace problem factory parts, not give me something to replace an after market part. Thanks for the input and the offers everyone!
