Hi folks, what's the favourite sights these days for your carry gun?

I dropped my G27 last weekend onto a rough concrete driveway and it effectively squashed the front sight and roughed up the rear. Could probably go cheap and just relpace the front, but I figure this is a good excuse to upgrade to something slightly radioactive.

I'm rather partial to the Trijicon Night Sites on my Glock 23.

Meps seam to be the forum favorite but I've been switching all mine to the AmeriGlo Operator. They cost just a few dollars more but you don't need special tools to install them because they come with everything you need.

Check CDNN Investments website. They have a bunch of sites that would be good replacements. I think that the factory adjustable rears were under $7.00. Great deals on nite sites too.

Adjustable sights on a Glock 27?

Have you thought this through?

No offence but the factory adjustable sights are like rolling on a condom, then cutting the tip off before putting it to use...............


Worthless

HotRod, the picture you posted does not represent the Ameriglo Operator sight but the smooth slope sight, however, I just discovered this is a new hybrid sight. It combines the .125 narrow front sight post of the operator with the traditional smooth slope rear minus the white outlines. Interesting. I'm hot to try a set now. I was looking at trying a set of Novaks although they are a little pricey. These just may be the ticket.

By the way, I use and like the Heinie straight 8's on my Glocks.

My bad. I should have mention they were the new Smooth Slope Operators and not the traditional Operator sights.

If i have time to take a sight picture i have time to do something else.Most defensive shootings happen too close to fully extend your arms to make a sight picture. They happen to fast . You need to practice without using your sights. Hip shooting, snap or point shooting is very important.

Would it be better to spend the sight money on Lenny Macgill videos? [/joking]

I like the looks of the ameriglo sights. Anything that comes with its own tools is good.

Yes, particularly the "workout" video where he runs around in spandex.

I was not suggesting the adjustable sights for the 27, that was the only price that I could recall off the top of my head (thought that it was a good price though). I believe that the factory night sights were in the $50 range. Left my catalog at work or I would be a little more specific.

I just purchased a set of the smoothe operator sights, and I must say they are sweet! I like them better than my Meps on my G-30. The really nice thing is that anyone can install these sights, and you do not need a rear sight installer. All you need to do is set your rear windage, and blue locktite the smoothe slope rear sight set screws.

Check out the Ameriglo website (http://www.ameriglo.com/), and when you go to the first checkout page look for the the coupon code and plug in "GSSF" You will get a 25% discount off of the smoothe operator sights.

The .125 front sight are very nice.

BTW Amerglo customer service is tops!

Enjoy
