    Has anyone tried adjustable sights on a Glock? What kind and what was your experience?

    I had the adjustable factory ones that came on my 34. I hit them off with a hammer and put on a heinie rear and a dawson FO front. I saw a bomar today though for $95. That's a bit much for me.

    I have Bomars (frome Custom Glock Racing) on my G17 and I love them.
    The G17 is set up just for GSSF matches.
    The Bomar's are a large sight and hang over the rear of the slide. The bomars made a huge differance in my shooting. Best I had ever done in a GSSF match was middle of "B" group (about 45 out of 98 shooters). With the Bomars and a 3.5 trigger (and lots less practice time--due to work) I managed 9th in "A" class.

    My favorite are buried bomars but they are expesive, time consuming and permanent. If you want a drop in solution the Bomar BMGL and DP adjustables are great options.

    The factory adjustables are garbage just like the factory fixed.

    I had adjustables but changed to Trijicon fixed I did not care for the adjustables . Once to get the loads you are going to carry the adjustables are really a waste anyway. Use a practice load that duplicates your carry load. learn to shoot with the fixed no problems

    Still have the factory rear adjustable on my 34, HiViz fiber optic on the front. Sight picture jumps out at you. Not that I know any different, having never used a $100 set, but this set up works for me pretty good.

    I put DP Adj/FO sights, from CGR, on my new G17, and really like them!

    This is a dedicated range gun, that I do not holster.

    I can't speak to competition, but I imagine these DPs (see attached) would serve quite well.

    The sights are well made and add a high-end look to a workhorse gun! ;)

    Is there anyone that placed adjustable sights on a g26? Is there any adjustable sight available that is almost just as small as the OEM glock adjustable sights?

    I put this set up on my Glock 34. I'd recommend it. Very crisp sight picture, and, although it's still relatively new, it's holding up very well.
