    Are Ameriglo Bolds $45 (give or take) than Glock night sights on a new G48?

    I’ve seen on several threads that many (some) have experienced new Bolds shooting low, sometimes corrected by Glock or Ameriglo supplying lower front sight. Is this still a problem?

    I don’t like glock night sights. I much prefer the Ameriglos, but prefer the U notch Agents.

    I have found no fault with Glock night sights.

    I prefer Ameriglo to OEM Glock night sights.

    Trijicon HD here but since that wasn't an option I'll go with the Ameriglos.

    I do most of my shooting in natural light.
    For that, I find the Ameriglo Bold superior to the Glock sights.
    And I prefer the square bottom rear sight.

    To get your perfect height sights, order the gun with plastic sights.
    Then bench it, do the math and order your Ameriglos.

    Dawson and Ameriglo have sight calculators on their websites.

    I have Trij HDXR and Ameriglo Bold.
    I like them equally well.

    I have mepro and Trijicon that are 18 and 20 years old. So they are just poor iron sights now. I restored the glock plastic on one gun. It’s better than the dead tritium sites.

    I put Ameriglo Agents on my 48, and I'm really happy with them. Really nice sight picture.

    I like the factory Ameriglo I got on my gen 5 19, was not at all impressed with the Glock night sights on my 19x. They got replaced with TFX pros, but can’t beat the price of Ameriglo when ordering a new glock

    The Ameriglo's that came iwth my factory G17 and 26 are spectacularly good. I love them. The orange front really helps with target acquisition.

    Ameriglo, put ameriglo spartans on my G45. Came with Glock night sights, didn’t care for them, we’re just alright. I like 3dot sights and prefer an orange front.

    While the Glock night sights on my G43 are just fine, I do like the Ameriglo on my new G48 better. FWIW, the ones on mine are spot on POA/POI with the 124 grain ammunition I've shot through the G48.

    I've swapped the front sight in several my Glocks with Ameriglo hackathorn front sights. Was gonna swap the rears, but the white border stock rears with a bright orange dot works pretty well for me. YMMV.
