    Well, my G23 & G30 night sights are pretty dim and time to replace.
    Also, I've cracks on my mags.

    How much they charge for factory night sight installed in these days and also how long do I have to wait?
    Any chance they will replace my mags w/ cracked body w/o charge?

    It has been almost 10+ yrs since I went back to Glock factory for a service.

    What kind of cracks do you have on your mags? Pics? Just curious. How old are they?

    They're non-full metal lined old mags.
    The body cracked on the square edge of mag... about 1-1/2" in length.
    Sorry no pic.

    I think installing new sights was $52 for GNS, so I'd guess that price, maybe a little less.

    yeah, that's what I thought too... around $55 range.
    Can't beat that that price for factory night sight installed and sight in at the factory.
    Will be there!

    :supergrin:

    $57.00 plus tax for Glock Night Sights. Any/all mags will be replaced. Ask for "Ranger", he is the real deal.

    Took my Glock 17, 21, 26 & 30 to Glock Monday.
    Guard at gate stops you and you take in pistols to guard shack show ID.
    They log serial numbers in computer.
    Tie slides back and give you visitor badge.
    Drive through gates and go all the way till you see a black canopy with Glock on it.
    Armorer is holding door open waiting for you.
    In my case I had 4 techs looking over my stuff.
    They stated Night sights w/15yr warranty $57 a set.
    They took all my mags and guns back to work on them.
    2 sofas and a chair & a TV with Glock films of factory and shooting.
    2013 Glock annual to read.
    1 1/2 hrs later brought my stuff back.
    Replaced receiver guts and extractors etc on slide of all 4 guns.
    Installed 2 sets of night sights.
    Test fired and cleaned.
    Replaced all my magazines with new gen 4 mags.
    All 9mm mags had +2 pads.
    Total cost to me $114. for night sights only.
    Profusely thanked them.
    Out the door and dropped off my badge.
