    Well I have looked around online a little but I cant find what I need. I just want a rear sight with normal dots. But I don't want/need nite sites. Does anyone make just a plain snake eyes rear replacement? (not expensive) I'm starting to not like the U.

    I think you might be heading for Glock night sights. They're about the cheapest I've seen with the set-up you describe. I know it's counter-intuitive, but that's how it seems to be. Maybe there is a good alternative that I don't know about that someone will share soon. I kind of like the three dot look but they don't have to be night sights for me, either.

    I'm pretty sure Ameriglo makes some. If not, I know that Novak makes them. Novak, however, will be pretty expensive. The Glock night sights really look like regular three dot sights until it gets dark.

    I don't have my armorer's price list with me, but does anyone know what a set of actual Glock night sights sell for? I'm thinking that they might not be that much more than the non-tritium options listed, although some of them are great options. Thinking if it's like $20 more, why not go for the actual Tritium version of Glock's product. All the OP would need to do would be to find an armorer nearby to order them for him. Just sayin'...

    Just a little extra info on the two to maybe help your decision. The Trijicon has a larger front dot than the Ameriglo. The Ameriglo rear sight has a set screw in them where the Trijicon does not.

    For plain white-dot steel sights, I really like Novak.
