    I want to use my new G17 for matches. I want to be able to adjust my POI/POA with various loads until I find one I like.

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Bo Mars are great but they hang off the back of the slide quite a bit.
    There are no good choices in adjustable sights that don't hang off the back or sit very high.
    Mabey the ones from Dawson Precision would be good. It's better to have high sights than ones that hang off the back IMO. I had the Bo Mars on my 20 for about six months. Loved the sight picture, but swapped them out for Heinie fixed sights. No regrets even though some loads don't hit in the same spot.

    I have Meprolight adjustable night sights on one G21 and a G34 (just put them on the G34 to replace Heinie fixed night sights). Not everyone will like their "chunky" and tall front sight, but they allow easy adjustment of POI, can allow the gun to double as a defensive weapon at home, and don't hang off the back of the gun.

    i have the bomars from custom glock racing. Yes, they overhang the back of the slide. If it is a competion gun and not your carry gun then no big deal. Really love the sights. They are legal for the GSSF matches in stock division.
