    I'm intersted in getting a new front sight for my carry glock 26. I really like the sights listed in the title. Any opinions? I would love to stick with the stock sight height, to do this I'm going to replace my stock plastic rear sight with glock steel one(for the ameriglo sight atleast) anyone have a similar setup? Do you like it?

    I have a Glock 26 and just ordered the Ameriglo GG-512-0 orange square to replace my standard front sight. I emailed Ameriglo and asked them if the 512 would work with my standard rear sight. They said "Yes". I'll probably "black out" the white line on the rear sight. Probably won't get this in the mail 'til Monday. I'm watching my pennies and thought this woud be the way to go in trying something different.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    MadAB: I went ahead and ordered the hack set!!

    NevadaBob: I was going to go with the same setup but wanted the glock steel rear sight. I crunched the number and save a few buck by just ordering the hack set. Nothing wrong with the plastic rear I just prefer the durability of steel. I hope you can post picks of your setup when you get them in and I'll do the same, for comparison sake if you don't mind.

    No I didn't, I'm not a member of GSSF (I know I should be). I thought about entering the code anyways but my conscience wouldn't let me.
