    Are all Glock front sights the same? Mine looks like it may have a very very small nut on the underside. Are they all like that?

    And do you remove them the same (with a dental pick or visegrips)?

    Thanks in advance.

    No they are not all the same.
    Some will be staked in, unlike yours.
    They can be different heights, can be made of different materials, and are or are not night sights.

    You need a "glock front sight tool" to take off the nut - assuming this was an original Glock sight.

    What you are seeing is not a nut, but the head of a screw. All the new Glocks have screwed-on front sights. Chances are, any new sight will require the 3/16" socket sight tool to attach and many ship with the tool. No sense ruining the old one by breaking it off.
