Update: The FBI contract sights are now called "Agent" sights and are an exclusive through Brownells. The Bold sights are exclusive through Glock.

FYI, the Ameriglo FBI contract sights are available for order now. They aren't on the website yet, but you can order them if you call Ameriglo @ (470) 223-4163. These are going to go on a Glock 17 that I don't even own yet. NVM, I ended up putting these on my Glock 19.

These are NOT hackathorn sights.

They are available with .140 wide (17/19) and .125 (26) which are both FBI spec.

The Agent rear sight has two blacked out tritium dots, a U-notch, and is serrated.

The Bold rear sight has two blacked out tritium dots, a square notch, and is serrated.

Link to VDMSR's website and pictures.

Installed on my Glock 19

Comparison of Trijicon and Ameriglo sights.

These are 3-dot tritium, blacked out, serrated rears.

VDMSR has pictures of both the FBI contract sights and the Ameriglo Bold sights. The FBI sights have a U-notch and the Bold sights have a square cut rear sight.

I'll post pics when my set arrives. I think these will be better than Trijicon's HD XR sights.

I really like the AG sights that came on my G43 Talo, which are similar except without the Trit dots on the rear.  Really nice sight picture.  I imagine these would be very similar.

Any word when these will hit the market? I just put a set of TCAPs on the new FDE G4 19 because I couldn't find any info on the FBI sights. Haven't ran the TCAPs yet and they're the first set I've owned with a .120" front.

TCAP are good sights.  I finished my reviews and will post them later of the BOLD and FBI sights, currently running a TCAP front.

The rear sight has two tritium dots and is serrated. Just Google "FBI contract sights." I don't want to post pics without permission.

Similar to Trijicon HD XRs, but not sharp as hell.

I've been using the bold sight for about two months now, and for me they definitely are better than HD's.  My group sizes have gotten better at all distances especially @ 15-25yds.
The tritium on the front sight glows brighter than the HD's which I assume is because it's not set as deep into the sight as HD's .
 There are no sharp spots on the rear ,so they won't scratch you and won't snag on clothing.
I wish they didn't discontinue the Bold sights so quickly.  

Do you know what the price is going to be on the FBI sights?

They are $99. Ameriglo does 15% off for LEO/MIL. I was going to ask about the Bold sights today when I ordered my FBI sights, but I forgot.

Thanks,  that's the same price they had the Bold sights for when I bought mine.  Went there looking for another set and they were gone,  I contacted Myles via email and he said the Bold sights have been discontinued but he'd sell me a set of i call in.  
I ended up buying a set of Spartans the day before he emailed me with the info and offer.  
I wish they'd make some sights for the cz75.

No problem. I'd imagine they ran the bold sights to see how well they'd do. Maybe they are doing the same with the FBI sights (or whatever they choose to call them). That's why I snagged a set now.

From Ameriglo. They aren't listed on the website. Just tell them you want the FBI contract sights. If they don't know what you're talking about, ask to speak to Myles.

That's great. I used to run a lime green pro glo front sight on my G19 and I liked it. I also have four sets of Yellow HD/HD XRs that I use. I figured I'd give the orange a shot and see if I like it.

Will do. I like the HD XRs, but I have three beefs with them.


They are sharp on my Glocks.

The metal seems softer compared to Ameriglo and Meprolight sights.

Their height (not that big of a deal).


If Ameriglo delivers all the same great features without the complaints of the HDs, at the competitive pricing they have now, they will beat Trijicon's ass.

Last I knew Ameriglo red is not photoilluminecent. I do know that their green front for the iDot Pro is. Interesting note that if you buy green and then paint them red/orange with sight paint the photoilluminecence shows through perfectly.

Last I knew, their orange pro glo is not. Not positive with these new sights, but it's not that big of a deal to me. Their lime-green pro glo is and it glows longer and brighter than the Trijicon HDs.
