Best Glock day and night sight setup EVER..IMHO

    I wanted to share this a while back, but last fall I upgraded the sights finally on my G23C. I have used trijicons and glock night sights, and decided I liked the Glock models better.

    I then fell in love with Ameriglo sights, and put together the ultimate sight setup for day and night:

    I know, they aren't lined up the best; :tongueout:

    Glock rear Night sight with Ameriglo "ProGlow" front sight post. They work GREAT outside, and nice and bright at night.

    Thoughts?

    Would like to see night pics but, overall, that's a great daytime setup.

    If it were me I'd be using the pro-glow red front sight but a ghost ring rear sight (ameriglo makes those too, I have one on order)

    I prefer the Ameriglo rear NS with this front sight.
    Too much white distraction on the rear Glock NS.

    I like the Ghost rear sight too, but it looks to big for CC. I had some adjustable Mepros on my G27, and they bugged the crap out of me as they caught on everything.

    I wound't mind trying some on a "range" or training only gun (hoping to add a G22 or G35 in the near future).

    Have you seen Trijicons new HD sights? They look nice and I have been considering getting a set for a while.

    No I haven't, Link???

    The main reason I love these is due to the Orange ring on the front sight post. I've also used their non night sight, orange painted front post.

    muad, I really like the way your excellent photographs highlight the great visibility of the AmeriGlo ProGlo front sight. You will also see the front sight referred to as the Hackathorn, or Hack sight, on AmeriGlo's web site.

    JBP55, amen to your comment.

    For other readers, see the photo below and excellent review of the AmeriGlo I-Dot Pro night sights (includes Hack front sight) written by GT member eremos:

    The AmeriGlo I-Dot Pro MSRP is $89 and AmeriGlo gives a 10% discount when ordered on their web site using Promo Code: GLOCKTALK For comparison, the Trijicon HD (Hard Duty) sight pair has an MSRP of $149-$159 depending on the model of Glock.

    Nice set up, but I would STRONGLY recommend you NOT use it for carry as compensated guns don't shine in that respect. Muzzle blast/powder blow back at contact ranges, flash that steals night vision etc... However compensated is nice, especially for range games and follow-up shots in a controlled environment. In a fast flowing/dynamic, perhaps rolling around on the ground and fighting for your life environment, I'll take a non-comped gun any day.

    I wish people would stop perpetuating this garbage.

    AMEN!! I've owned this 23C for a couple years now, with hundreds of rounds down range with NO problems with blinding or burn from the ports. It is louder, but that doesn't bother me.

    Now, on my 24C, I did get annoyed by the build up of powder residue on the front sight post, however that's only because of the forward facing port design. The 23C, and most all other C models from Glock feature side facing ports.

    You need a little space between your rear notch and your front post if you do much shooting outside of 10yds...

    I really like the front post but I prefer blank rears.

    Agreed. You have supported/validated what I said: Fine for the square range, sterile situations with rules and regs. Just not for a dynamic, free-flowing, fight for your life environment. You do not want to be pushing, shoving, guarding your gun, rolling on the floor or shooting at brail distance and pulling off a half dozen shots with a commped gun. You have a rather high likelihood of doing damage to yourself and lessoning your effectiveness in the fight.
     
  16. +1, i have the same set up on my G19, G17 & G26. Black rear and Ameriglow GL-212-OR on the front.

    My G34 currently has Dawson Black out Rear and Dawson FO front, but that might change.

    MY G17 other photos to follow

    Agreed. A little space for distance..25-50 yrds. I use a Dawson set up with plain rear and F/O front on everything I own.

    d90king, that's excellent photography in your post.

    I have definitely become convinced that less clutter is better for me with night sights. In principle, I much prefer a simple, wide-notch rear sight and a narrower front post. If I can have a single, unobtrusive tritium dot on the rear sight it seems good insurance to me. I'd rather have something to index front and rear sight in total darkness just in case it's needed. I figure it's better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it. It's just my personal preference and I'm comfortable in training with the setup. One thing is certain, I'll never be going back to night sights with two dots on the rear sight.
