    Will they replace them for free when they burn out, or do you have to pay for them?

    Well...since it has been 12+ years, I would think that it is not their problem.

    Well... that's what I thought, but I thought I'd ask to be sure. OK?

    Glock only warrants their house brand of night sights. Premature failure of either Meprolight or Trijicon must be remidied by the respective manufacturer of the sights.

    Hi,

    My G17 is about 3 years old. When I bought it, my gunsmith replaced the plastics with Glock factory TriLux H3 tritium sights.

    I just noticed that the front post don't light up anymore. Think I'll try my gunsmith first and if that doesn't work I'll contact Austria.

    Thought the life of these things were about 10 years. So I think I only got about 30% worth of what I payed for.

    Cheers
    Nick

    You don't know how long "someone" had them in-stock.

    I bought Glock night sights for a G21 at a gun show, had them installed on the spot. The first day or 2, the sights were fine. Then (after firing only a few rounds) the front sight went completely dark. When I inquired, the seller said Glock warrantied them and I got a free replacement front sight.

    Another G21 came new with the same sights---no problems with them.
