Narrow front night sights?

I seem to be having a little trouble with the width of a traditional front sight. I think I would shoot my Glock 26 more accurately if the front sight was more narrow and or the rear sight slot was wider.

I have found an option from Warren Tactical, the Sevigny Competition Fiber Optic (http://www.warrentacticalseries.com/sights.htm) sight.

Anybody know of any other options?

Also, AmeriGlo has sights of varying widths:

I know Judy's Trijicons have a much narrower front blade than the OEM Meps on my G21 do:

All of the above are great at answering questions and offer first rate service! The products are of excellent quality.

Get a square file that is smooth one side or grind it so. Put the smooth side down and then open up the rear sight evenly on both sides. I opened up the rear on my g29 almost to the white outline on the stock rear and it is near perfect.

Widening the rear sight, interesting idea! Is there a draw back to having a wider rear sight?

Look at the "Race cut" models.

Well, after more research I think I might like to try XS Big Dot sights (http://www.xssights.com/store/handgun.html). I tried tilting my Glock so that the front sight is above the rear sight just to see if I liked a sight picture with the front sight sticking up all by itself as the Big Dot does. I liked it! I am still considering the standard dot.

I'm going to post this as a new thread to get more input on the Big Dot sight.
