    I own a G26 and used to own a G19 and now I have the Gen4 G17. My 9mm wants needs and desires are complete as far as I am concerned.

    My only complaint is the plastic sights. I dont need steel sights but I just want them mostly for durability under aggressive use.

    Who makes good steel night sights with the stepped cocking shoulder style rear sight for easier one handed reloads and malfunction manipulation of the slide?

    I am not a trigger diva so upgrading the trigger is not an option. Plus I cant since it might be carried as a duty gun and policy says we cant change anything internally. Only externally.

    Thanks

    Congratulations on that buy.
    I just bought one too as its so iconic.
    You ought to check out Ameriglo sights, they are really good and are more modestly priced and come with a longer warranty than others if you buy their NS. Their ghost ring sight is really really good, you wont be disappointed in that.

    I have a Gen4 19 and 26, so the 17 is next. I put Glock night sights on mine and they work for me. Very bright at night!

    Congrats on the new Glock!

    I have Trijicon HD sights on my G27, and it's got the large rear sight so that you can rack the slide one-handed if needed.
