    I am trying to install factory Glock night sights. Front sight Glock sent to me just drops right in easily but what holds it on? Glockmeister's instructions say to apply locktite to a screw, but I didn't get any screws with the sights. Besides, there is no hole for the screw to go in under the sights, just an oval shaped area that goes into the hole in the slide. Please help.

    if it doesn't have a screw, then it might have to be staked on like the factory plastic one.

    does the bottom of the night sight have 2 indentations? there is a special staking tool that is needed. i had a G19 that had factory Mep's that were staked on.

    No. Only an oval shaped that loosely fits the oval cut in the slide.

    haven't seen them un installed, but if there is no screw hole, then it sounds like it needs to get staked.

    You'd have been better off ordering Trijicons or Meprolights, which do come with a screw. You'll need the special crimping tool that Glock makes for their front night sight installation.

    The Glock night sights require a new tool to install the front sight. Find an armorer that has the tool or buy one. Good luck. resdep

    You should have invested in some Novaks or Heines, factory sights suck.
