    I have been trying to decide which night sights to put on my G19. In all of my research I heard a rumor that if I sent my gun to glock they would install Glock nights sights for $60. If this rumor is true it would be very inticing to me since I live in Smyrna, GA. Does anyone know if this is true or has had it done?

    Thanks

    Just give them a call and they will confirm or deny the rumor.

    Thanks guys I just talked to Glock and they said it was $72 + tax. They also said that they were out of the Glock branded sights so they were installing trijicons right now. I know the Glock branded sights are trijicons too, but something inside me wants to have Glock stamped on my sights.

    I would spring for the Trijicons in a heart beat. Glock is currently installing actual Trijicons not Glock sights with Trijicon inserts. That means the front sight is screwed in, not spread, or lock tited, or pinned in. The screw is the most secure form of retention and you will most likely not find Trijicons or Meprolights for that price at your local dealer. Not to mention you will pay even more locally for installation.

    As long as you are not getting Glock brand night sights, they should be the screw in type. So if you are talking about getting Trijicons from Glockmeister, yes they are screwed in.

    I have found through years of use that the Trijicons (both Glock and Trijicon brand) stay brighter a couple of years longer than the Mepros. However, I like the bigger white dot that the Mepro has over the Trijicon.

    Life is never easy.... ;)

    I noticed that the meprolights and the trijicons have square edges on the rear sights. I have been looking into getting Novak carry night sights and they are not squared off. My concern is that the square edges would catch on clothing or the holster. Comments?
    Thanks

    I have never had a problem with Triji's or Mepro's snagging anything. If you really would like a more rounded profile, check out the "Novak" style sights by Ameriglo. They are the smooth slope kind and I have some on one of my Glocks. I like them, but prefer the Operator sights by Ameriglo. If you get the smooth slope ones, they come with all the tools needed to install them except some lok-tite. But, you can get that at any auto parts store.

    i've got the smooth slope yellow/green ameriglo's on my G19. i love the look of them, and they seem to be virtually 'snag-proof'... they were pretty easy to install, too. here's a pic:

    You have to use one of those independant photo hosting things. You can't just post pics to the board.

    G, I also like the Mepros more than Trijicons. The white outline on the Mepro's, around the inserts, is much more pronounced.

    Go for the Trijicons! They don't snag.
