Why are Glock Factory Night Sights so Hard to Find?

I know a site sponsor has them. But I am not trying to spend $75 on $60 sights. Adds up when I am trying to order 5 sets.

Why are they so hard to find?

Well, without paying a markup - how is anyone supposed to make any money?

I was under the impression that Glock only does installs. I have an MGM rear sight tool so I am pretty well equipped to do the installs on my own.

$75 for night sights is cheap. Most run about $100 or more.

Jesus christ. Sure $75 is cheaper than $100? Who cares? Not the point!

HERE

When they are in stock they go for $57. I remember years ago more retailers stocked them and also had them for similar prices.

I can't find them in stock anywhere now for under $75. Even at that price point hardly any retailers have them in stock. The question was WHY?

Do I understand correctly, Glock has discontinued the use of stake-on front night sights?

Where'd you find them that cheap? I'm actually looking for one or maybe a few sets...and the best price I've found for ML10226 is $70 + shipping.

Never say never, but they pretty much have.

Their screw on front night sights are a touch different from most though, they are a bit longer, and allow the screw to go through the sight housing much like on the polymer screw on fronts.

This allows a longer (more secure?) screw, and it won't cause the tritium vial to break if the Loctite is put in the hole.

Glock installed mine last year for $57 as another said......My G22 was in for other work so it seemed sensible. I have novaks on other guns and like the Glock night sights just fine.
