    I have the same question. I would like to get some new sights for my G34 so I can start entering some of the competitions. I don't like the Glock rear adjustable sight, I like the adjustable part but I think the sight setup is a bit sloppy for anything other than short range stuff. I have Sig night sights on my Sig P239 and I find the 3 dot setup there much better. I was thinking about some TruGlo or HiViz sights for this as I consider it more of a target gun (my G32 is better suited for uninvited guests). I would really like to have a rear adjustable site if anyone makes a decent one.

    Also has anyone tried a Storm Lake barrel? Wondering if that would give my water pistol a little better accuracy over the factory water barrel.

    I really like my friend's TFOs. I like any good brand of night sight though.

    It would depend on the purpose. I have Ameriglo night sights on my G19 and like them very much. I have the GLOCK brand night sights on G27, and they give the exact same sight picture as the factory plastic sights. I don't like them as much as I do the Ameriglos. The Trijicon night sights seem to have a nice picture. If I were going to add night sights to another Glock, I'd probably go with Ameriglo Operators. They have a slightly wider rear notch, which I really like.

    If you were to decide to go with Ameriglos, Clyde Armory out in Bogart is a dealer and will install them with purchase. I paid $69, IIRC, for mine there. I don't know if the other local places will install with purchase for no extra charge or not. If you order something, I have the Glock sight tools and would be happy to help you out. I'm a Glock armorer.

    If I were outfitting something like a G34, which I may be doing soon, for competition, I'd probably go with something like the Ameriglo Combat sights, which have a wider rear notch. I might even combine the Combat rear with their thinner front sight. I'll be doing more research on this issue though.

    I have Novaks on all of my S&W autos and like them, and I have a set on my Springer 1911. I may soon send the 1911 to Novak to have their Extreme Duty adjustable rear sight installed.

    well mostly I just have a hard time quickly aquiring a sight picture with the factory sights on the glock. When I was shooting Dan's XD i could aquire the target much faster and more accurately. Whether it was because of the sights or just the difference in pistol I am not sure but it sure seemed to be the sights for a portion of it.

    Just wanted to look at several different ones and see if anything struck my fancy.

    TruGlo Tritium Fiber Optic (TFO), very bright in both daylight and no light:

    On my G17 I have Ameriglo Operator Night sights. I like the smooth profile of the operators, which makes them snag free. I bought them from Rick at Ameriglo while at the Conyers GSSF match and the armorer at the match install them for free. I thnk I paid $50 for them (Rick was running a show special).

    Gotchya. You're welcome to check out my Ameriglos, and Clyde's has some with Trijicons in stock.

    The stock GLOCK sights don't give the best of sight pictures.

    I like the TFO's as well, but what I like about mine is the fact that there arent 3 fiber optics to look at, just the one up front in between the heinie sites in the back. Personal preference really, but I agree that sites make a big difference.

    Also, TFO's are night sites, mine arent.

    You might want to save your money though and skip the sites and go ahead and trade your G for an XD, I think we all see that coming... ;-)

    I must say that these are pretty nice! That guy at Bullseye had these on his competition Glock.

    Especially for us old farts. So much easier to acquire the target without having to close one eye and squint. :p

    I cannot sell out on my g19... there is something about your first that makes you want to keep it...

    maybe in the next yr or so it will get a little friend. right now one the top of the gun list is a pocket gun (keltec or bersa) and an AR 15 (or something like that).

    hmmm, I need to find some rich folks to adopt me.
