    For a Glock 27 Gen4, which Glock OEM rear night sights are recommended: 6.1/-1, 6.5/0, or 6.9/+1? Thanks!

    For the G27 40S&W Gen4 or Gen3, the standard rear night sight is 6.5mm/+0

    I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I'm not getting a lot of luck with the search feature (as searching for "glock night sights" obviously comes up with too many non-related results): How do the OEM night sights compare to that of other brands? I like to get Glock OEM parts as much as possible for my carry gun, and it seems like the Glock OEM ones are pretty good. However, I haven't had the chance to see them in person.

    The excellent summary of night sights linked below will get you started with some good information about your choices for factory-installed night sights; either Meprolight or Trijicon lamps and the strengths of either type. It also includes information about other aftermarket alternatives.

    Thank you very much for the reply. I've heard that Glock has both Meprolight and Trijicon OEM sights, but I can't seem to find a place that sells both. I can find the front sight by what appears to be Trijicon, and the rear sight of unknown origin (anyone know if the rear is Trijicon or Meprolight?). Can I only choose the different sights from the factory?

    The AmeriGlo sights are looking rather appealing though...

    Your link to the rear night sight is the factory GLOCK 6.5mm Rear (Meprolight lamps).

    Below are the Glock Part Numbers with links to GlockParts.com which sells them all.

    Factory GLOCK (Meprolight)

    NF17G24 GLOCK Front (screw-on)
    NR17G24 GLOCK 6.5mm Rear

    Factory Trijicon

    NF17A24 Trijicon Front (screw-on)
    NR17A24 Trijicon 6.5mm Rear

    Trijicon Set (less expensive when purchased together)
