This is why upgrade your factory Glock sight is a great idea.

Most factory Glocks come with plastic sights, and they are fine for normal range use, but they absolutely suck in these scenarios:

  • Not durable at all
  • Thick front sight post can block small targets down range
  • Not suppressor height for red dot co-witness
  • Can't aim if using a suppressor
  • Not visible in low light 
  • Rear sight is not angled for one handed slide racking

Upgrading Factory Glock Sights 

Most aftermarket Glock sights are precisely machined from 7075 Aluminum, offering superior durability and reliability compared to plastic factory sights.

Edged rear sight can be used to rack the slide against hard surfaces if needed to clear slide jam if operating one handed in emergency situations.

Companies like Trijicon, Truglo, XS Big Dot, Ameriglo and many others offer tons of color configurations for Glock shooters.

The majority of Glock pistols have front sights of the same height, while variations in height only occur with the rear sights. Most rear sights have the same dovetail dimensions, but small frame Glocks like the Glock 42 and 43 may have separate SKUs for these iron sights compared to full size guns like Glock 19, 17, 22, 21 and others.
