    I've realized that the stock Glock plastic front sight is too fat for our targets. I'm looking at the Sevigny sights or the Warren Tactical but much prefer something with tritium inserts.

    The Sevigny sights and the Warren Tactical sights measure .115" up front and .150" notch in the rear.

    If I go with tritium... I'd use Ameriglo Pro series sights with a .125" front and .180" rear notch.

    My basic question is... what are the Glock shooters using? Do you think a .125" front sight is still too wide for our weekly meets?

    FYI... the stock Glock night sights measure .140" front and .150" notch rear. It also seems that the stock plastic sights are the same.

    In my opinion, any of the above sights, including stock, are more than adequate in every way for the weekly indoor matches that we shoot at BIR. Changing sights won't improve your scores.
     


  3. Most of the other folks will get far more technical that I will, but I use Warren Tactical sights. The front one is a night sight and the back is straight black. Was a strong recommendation from a number of my Expert and Master classed IDPA shooter buddies including Scott Warren. I'm very happy with them and they work very well in all situations for me, even in low light or no light conditions.

    I am about to get a new G34, so this subject is of interest to me as well. I thought I would just work with the factory sites for a while, and see what other folks are using at the range.

    Ouch, that hurts. Maybe I'm still in denial!

    Do you know how wide the Warrent Tact tritium front sight is? I don't think it's as thin as the plain black or fiber optic ones. Those are .115".

    The stock sights are very flimsy. I knocked mine off during the first match so I would recommend replacing them.

    I use Ameriglo target sites because I use my Glock in competition. But for carry I would use some low profile sights.

    Any of the ones mentioned would be good.

    All my Glocks sport Ameriglo Operators, Yellow/Green.

    All of mine sport green front and yellow rears....either Trijicon or Ameriglo.

    Don't make me shoot any better but sure do look purty! :supergrin:

    Well, there seem to be several votes for Ameriglo. I might do some research on that brand.

    I have a couple of guns with Tru Glo sights on them. I like them o.k. I have one with a Dawson precision front that I like a little better.
     
  13. Tried to find out the specifics for you on their site, but couldn't find the specs. Anyway, most of the top folks, Sevigney, Julie Goloski and Donnie Burton use them, so what's good enough for them, is sure good enough from me. I'm very pleased. Absolutely beats the stock stuff.

    FYI... the plain or fiber front sight is .115" wide. The tritium front is .125" wide. The Warren Tact rear has a .156" notch.

    I'm torn between between the Warren Tact tritium and Ameriglo Pro series Operators. They are .125/.180.

    Heinie rear, Dawson FO front. I use a .125, and would like it to be thinner, so the next time I buy a set, I'll get Dawson's .9, which is about as small as you'll find.

    I've got an Ameriglo night-sight up front and the stock in the rear. I have the stock width .140 up-front. I use my gun for defense shooting and not matches though.

    I ended up with a set of Heinie's in all black with the race cut rear. .156" rear notch with a .125" front blade. If I ever decide to go with a fiber optic front, it would be easy enough to change to a Dawson.

    Now I just need to take a ride to see Claude to have them put on. Anyone ever use CW Shooters Supply for sight installation?
