    I just picked up a set of brand new Glock Factory Night sights

    while looking in the bag I noticed that there is no screw for the front sight. the guy I got them front said that they are to be staked

    can any one help me out here on how to do it

    thanks

    Yep, you need a staking tool. They tend to be specific use and rather spendy. Unless you're planning on staking on a whole pile of front sights, I'd recommend you try and find a qualified smith or Glock armorer who already owns the proper tool to install it. I'm NOT meaning to rub salt in the old wound, but this is why I only use nutted fronts.

    Send them back and get a screw on front. Glock night sights aren't the best, they sit too low for me and lots of folks have had them go dim or the front come loose. Meprolight, Trijicon or Ameriglo is your friend. If you intend to do it yourself you will need a rear sight pusher and front sight nut driver.
