Glock-brand aftermarket sights not for subcompacts?

    The notes say

    Glock rear sights are interchangeable across all Glock handguns
    Standard factory sight heights:
    9mm Luger, 40 S&W, 357 Sig, 380 ACP is 6.5mm (.256")

    45 ACP, 10mm is 6.9mm (.027")
    A change in sight height by one increment, for example from .256 to .27, will result in a shift of approximately 2" (higher) at 25 yards, given no change to the front sight.
    Glock recommends the use of their rear sight mounting tool for installation.

    I dont know why they wouldnt fit. Do they have another listing for the subcompact ones, there notes section makes it totally confusing.

    Yeah - what's confusing is the line of text just below the Glock logo on that page:

    "Factory sights fit any Glock (except sub-compact models)."

    I'll probably go ahead and get it along with some other stuff - if it doesn't go on my 26, I'll put it on my 19.
