From the Ameriglo 2018 catalog

"Modeled after AmeriGlo’s award-winning Federal contract sights, the Agent sight set by AmeriGlo features a 3-dot design with a ProGlo front sight (green tritium/orange outline) and a serrated U-notch rear sight with green tritium and black outlines."

Maybe someone with a 17M or 19M can comment on their front sight. The word "modeled" makes me think the GL5517 is not the actual version used by the FBI.

EDIT: The reason I'm curious is that I've followed Golck's polymer and GNS sight versions since 1990. The full length front sight screw was added for a reason years ago. I've had them all. Pinned, short screw, and long screw.
Sights on the 19M I got this week.

Bold sights are the Glock factory version
with a square notch rear. GL-846
You can only get those from Glock now.
Ameriglo no longer sells them.

The FBI / Agent sights are GL851 and
have a U notch rear.

Gen 5 use a GL-5517 and have a .140 front (wide)
.200 is the height. And thin is .125
Is there an option for a Gen 5 thin front sight? I only see the standard .140

Looks identical to my Agent sights except those
are 17 build mine are 18 build
.
Thank you

Does the front sight screw hole threading go all the way through to the top of the sight?
Does not.
Those 2016 sights were preproduction like I thought


I seem to recall when I ordered it that there were two types of NS you could order. I have to check the form...
The 2 choices were .125 or .140 front sight.

Yes, call or e-mail Myles at Ameriglo.
He will swap out for a .125 and the also
the yellow/lime color if you buy the standard Agents,

Excuse the newbie question... is installation of these sights something I can do myself? Or does it need to be done by a Glock armorer? I have a G19Gen4 and a G43Gen4. I’ve kept them both completely stock, but these FBI sights look really appealing to me.

Installed my own on 2 Glocks with no problems.
Plastic rear sight just taps out.
The new rear sight needs to be fitted to your slide's dovetail.
I place a sheet of 220 wet or dry sandpaper on a flat surface (granite block).
Hold the sight flat against it and sand the bottom until it will seat almost fully onto the dovetail.
I just tap it the rest of the way with a hammer and brass punch.
Front sight you will need a little 3/16" hex driver to R&R it

Thanks. I’m ordering a set for my 19 & 43. I just noticed they’re tritium, too. Exactly what I’ve been looking for.

Taroman, what tools did you use to install your new sight? I'm ordering the sights, but I'll need the tools to do it. I see they have several front sight tools, one rear sight tool, and a fancy (expensive) one.
