    Going to be in Georgia in about two weeks and thought I would get some night sights on a couple of my Glocks. Do you need an appointment to get in or just drop by? Also, Glock night sights or Trijicon?

    Glock, Inc does not take appointments. It's first come first served. Depending on what you need/want done and how busy they are, you may be able to wait or you can drop it off and pick it up later.

    I was there about two years ago and waited about an hour for the work to be done.

    I heard that the Trijicons are backordered several weeks due to government contracts so your only option would be the factory Mepros. The Mepros are just as bright and actually have a better warranty. The only difference is the physical design\shape of the sights.

    Does anyone know if they do factory tours or anything like that? There is a chance that I might shoot the Conyers GSSF match this year, and I'd love to take a tour of the factory which I was out that way.

    There are no factory tours available. All one gets to see is the lobby and the parking lots.

    I hear the parking lot is to die for!

    I wouldn't be surprised if there's GTers that go there to pay homage like the whaling wall in Jerusalem.

    You will come up to a gate and wait for the guard to open it for you. The guard will then mark sure your weapon is unloaded before he will let you walk toward the front door of the lobby.

    I am reading conflicting posts. Some say Trijicons no longer available because of a price hike on Trijicons part, and others say that Glock is temporary out of stock because of a government contract. Anyone know for sure?

    Thanks in advance
