The Meprolight FT Bullseye easily replaces the rear sights on standard size Glock and uses 2 points within the sight tube to aim; the circle at the back of the sight and the dot at the front. The result is you are still lining up the ‘rear’ circle with the ‘front’ dot to aim....

My only handgun is a Gen 3 G19 and I've gotten to where I don't even carry it anymore due to its size. So I've been strongly thinking about getting a G43 and maybe selling the G19. I really don't shoot as a hobby anymore so the only reason to keep the G19 would be for possibly a better home defense gun over the 43.
What was your first Glock (gateway). I started with a Gen 3 Glock 26. Then a Gen 3 G19. Put on night sights and no mods (500 round trigger job). Presently considering a Gen 4 G30.
I had the opportunity to go to the range after work this evening and it was pushing 100 degrees. I took one of my Wasr-10 AK' s, one of my AR15 carbines with BCM M4 upper, my new M&P Shield 9mm, Gen 4 Glock 17, Sig P320 Compact 9mm, my two Tisas 1911's and lastly, my homebrew Beretta 92 frame with a 96 ejector and a 96FS Vertec upper.
My first 1911 was a springfield armory compact 1911. I think it had a 3 inch barrel. I bought it about 30 years ago. It was a jamomatic. I traded it in for a S/A full size and the same thing. I sent it back and no fix. I then bought colt 1991. It would jam every so often and I was ready to give up on 1911s. Then the Colt apparently broke in and now it is dead on reliable, accurate and a fantastic trigger. I trust it enough to carry it every day. The front sight popped off and I sent it back to colt and they replaced both sights with a 3 dot. I love this gun. I have small hands so it fits perfect. The colt will only feed fmj but that's fine with me.
What kind of luck have you had with your 1911?
I'm currently selling a couple of pistols I own to consolidate my stock for the moment. I'm relatively new to the gun owning world and I think I'd be better off with one for now instead of two. The one that I would have normally kept is too hard for me to field strip these days. Anyway, I'm looking at a Glock 19 or 17 as a be all end all gun. Both are gen 4. I'm leaning toward the 17 because the grip on the 19 causes me to scrunch my pinky into my ring finger to get a good grip. The 17 gives me more room. There's a few other guns from different companies that I'm also interested in. Should I go for the Glock? Why?
