    Well I just got my 4th Gen Glock 22 that will be replacing my 3rd Gen Glock 22 RTF2. So far I'm not terribly excited about AmeriGlo CS but I don't have the sights yet. I read a few reviews before ordering from Ameriglo, and right now my biggest grip is in reference to shipping. Almost review I read said quick shipping, Well I ordered my G22 from Buds and Sights from AmeriGlo on Friday evening. I was able to have my dealer fax the FFL on Monday, and receive the G22 today and transfer from my FFL. Over at AmeriGlo 4 Business days after order, I received a shipping conformation... they shipped today. I'm a little disappointed that they didn't ship earlier. I'm still excited to receive the sights and try them out and will post a review but the shipping time while not a deal breaker by any means is a little disappointing when compared to how Buds really came through.

    Glad you ordered those sights, they are my preferred tritium models. I've ordered at least 5 things from Ameriglo and always received adequately quick shipping.
    Sorry you have to wait a few more days. I'm sure you won't die b/c of it.

    I won't die, but I'm limited on time. And like I said its not a deal breaker, its just a little disappointing and its only fair report things as they occur.

    I put 250rds through my new Gen4 22 today and can't wait to get the plastic POS Glock fixed sights off my gun.

    I just recieved the sights from Ameriglo, I put on the front sight, easy enough with the included front sight tool.

    Here are some pictures of my new Ameriglo's and my Old Meprolight's

    I think the Rear ameriglo sight looks to be slightly higher quality machining than the front ameriglo sight but that is probably due to it being a smaller piece and being harder to machine, I'll post some low light images in a bit.

    Very nice.

    I have the same ones on my G17 and I love them.

    They are, although I'm somewhat of a perfectionist so until I get out and shoot them and see how well I do the Front Sight is going to bother me with the Tritium slightly off center, such is life. I swear my meprolights slant down to the right just a hair... I'm crazy I know.

    Just the little things annoy me.

    I know this is a very old thread (almost 2 years old) but I did use to make an informed decision on purchasing the Ameriglo Operator sights, thanks for posting the pictures!

    I ordered from shootersplus and got the last two sets they had in stock.

    Thanks again gifters for the review!

    Is it my imagination or do the MEPS look both brighter and larger?

    Full disclosure I have 2 sets of MEPS on my Glocks.
