    I was planning to hop up the G22 but now plan to enter my local GSSF matches this year. Therefore I gotta keep it stock.

    I hate my stock fixed glock sights and want to upgrade them. I want low profile adjustable sights (Day or night) that are approved for GSSF stock gun class.

    Please give me some recommendations.

    Also,
    I get the impression that Glock Inc. makes a 3.5 lb. trigger rod. But can't seem to find one. If they do exist, are these approved for GSSF stock gun class as they are manufactured by Glock?

    On a side note: I think Glocks website sux. I know they make a bunch of parts and accessories but they do not show aything on their website. They need an Add to Cart section darnit!

    Shoot straight!

    All conventional notch and post style sights are legal for GSSF except fiber optics.

    I have yet to see a low profile adjustable sights for the glock that is truly adjustable.

    The sights that win the most are drop in Bomar adjustables. Also very popular are Heinies and Race Cut Heinies.

    Yamama,

    Glock does not make a bunch of accessories. The web site is an international informational site. Glock, Inc., of Smyrna, GA does not sell 3.5# factory connectors. You have to get them from one of the various Glock vendors doing business in the USA. I recommend Heinie night sights.

    So Glock does make a factory 3.5 connector. Is it allowed in the stock gun class?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    ....I broke down last night and ordered some slant pro Heineies. My mentor, Scott, has'm on his 21..and due to his recent side match performances:) I have become convinced that ....a pair would increase my performance potential also.

    ..will see if I can get them on my 34 (UL) before Orlando...in hopes it will help me to better "tread water" at the "deep end" of the pool.

    Alright... I put on the Bo-Mar sites on the glock and hit the range this afternoon. I must say, I think they really improved my accuracy. Took me about 50 rounds to get it dialed in. Target aquistion seems much quicker. Overall I am very happy with them.

    I put them on myself. I'm glad I did not pay to have it done. It took me a few minutes in my garage. I did have to modify one of my 3/16 in. deep sockets in order to tighten the front sight set screw. For the rear sight I removed the stock site by tapping it out with an aluminum punch and did the same thing to insert the new sights. Centered them up and tightened them down.

    Blamo!

    ...how did you get the stock glock front sight off? A particular tool you used?

    I'm planning on putting on some hienies I ordered.

    Thanks for your help:)

    Grab the factory front with a set of pliers and pull.

    If you look at the underside of the stock sight you will see a little plastic nail stuck in the center of the front sight. Use a heavy safety pin or something similar and pick it out. Then you should be able to push the sight out from underneeth the slide. I used a pair of tweesers to squeez the bottom of the sight together and pushed it through. I do not see any reason that this could not be reinstalled.

    I think CGR's method may render the stock sight unusable. Who wants them anyways!

    Yes my method will not allow you to reinstall the sight in most cases but the stock fronts are pretty much designed to be a one install only.

    Now the really cool manly way to take out the front is to bite it and pull then spit the front out. Mega style points for this method.

    Pliers work too, but no style points

    ..WOW! I had no idea.

    ..and one wack w/a hammer with my new wood drift punch (not the "right" tool, but the tool I had "right" now) and the rear sight took off across the garage.

    ..I'm kinda glad I replaced'm now.
