    Many of us (including myself) sport sights costing in upwards of $100-$150 dollars. But what is out there for those who don't want to drop 1/5 the price of the weapon on just sights? Truglo fiber optic sights, 3 dots by various manufacturers, Glock steel sights, anything. . .

    Just looking for some options around $30-$60. :wavey:

    What would be a good combo with the stock rear sights?

    Didn't you just go back to the factory Glock sights and like them?

    The truglo fiber optics look interesting, but I have never tried them.

    Yes, and I do. But I really like fiber optics during the day and the white outline. Maybe my perfect set would be the stock rear with fiber optic front.

    You're a GENIUS!

    Wow, Ameriglo truly has the best sight offerings and prices I've ever seen on their website. I wish I found them long ago. Thanks!

    You know that Glock makes steel (non-night) sights....right?

    This is the one I have on the G38 I carry, it also has an Ameriglo tritium sight on the front.

    Just sayin'. lol


    But yeah, I'm going with either Ameriglo white dot front, or Ameriglo front night with with the stock rear because they're cheap, it's less weight and it's that same sight picture. Don't snap because it's not a bigggg difference in weight, but still it counts. thanks though :wavey:

    Ameriglo, I like a plain black rear with tritium front.

    The steel trijicon 3 dot sight set no tritium are hard to beat . The front sight is a huge white dot kinda at a angle that really stands out and rear are just regular looking dots. I think I paid 30 for a set couple years back and had a guy at the gun show put them on for 10 bucks. Not bad for 40 bucks. For anyone who doesnt want to spend alot and doesnt need night sights I cant think of a better option.
    model on box shows GLO5 but mine is a model 21 glock

    Do you have a set of calipers to measure those sights? I would like to know the width of the front sight and the width of the rear sight channel. For me those measurements make a significant difference in the sight picture.

    Thanks!
