    Just looking for gun fight sights. Not sure if I like the XS big dot ones. These will be going on a 32 and a 30s. Any help would be appreciated. :wavey:

    I like Meprolights. I have them on my G21 and G29, and I'll soon order fir the new Gen-4 G17 I bought last Saturday. Great sights, reasonable price.

    Oh boy, here we go. I like Tru-Glo's because the dots are bigger and you can get them as green in front, yellow in back.
    But that's just me.
    Next.

    Are the part numbers the same for the 30 and 32? How did you install the rear sight as well? Thanks for the help.

    I have Ameriglo "Hackathorn" Sights on my 17 & 19.

    The setup is a Trijicon HD front and ultra wide gapped serrated plain black rear. This setup is AWESOME for fast acquisition. Also, the rear sight is great for one handed manipulation. The set costs $72 and are a steal at that price.

    On the TFO's how easy is the rear sight to install? Do they give you any tools?

    No tools provided. There are many YouTube videos on do it yourself installs. I bought mine at my LGS and they installed them in less than 10 minutes. Unless you have a sight pusher I would recommend a gun smith but as many videos show, you can do it with some basic tools.

    You need a sight pusher. If you hit them with a hammer, you may crack the globes that contain the tritium.

    They range from $90 to $200. Your LGS may have one or a local gun smith may do it for sell than the cost of a tool. I put them on 10 Glocks and 2 Kimbers, so I bought a tool.
