looking for info on sights. I am wanting something for more pinpoint accuracy and was wandering what you guys have had good luck with.

Lots of options. I've owned several and have shot Glocks with several different types and never had a preference. But that said, my G26 with the stock sights shot the most accurate of them all (in my hands); front sight a white dot/rear sight the square "u".

Just wondering what you mean by "pinpoint". Check out this guy.
Yes, everyone will point out that stock sights work just fine...and they do. I didn't like them and that silly white U distracted from my focus on the front sight. I painted the u black with a sharpie and that helped very much...for me. Shooter problem, not the sight. I'm accustomed to flat black, serrated rear sights with no markings and that is my preference. I got the tritium model as the one dot doesn't distract me. Are they necessary? No. Do they "disappear" after muzzle flash when shooting in the dark? No. Will I ever need them? Not likely. Does your weapon mounted light cause them to wash out and be useless? Yes. But they are a value added feature with no negative drawbacks, other than spending money on something other than ammo.
Some people will passionately tell you night sights are a total waste of money. I disagree. While they will likely never be needed, in the off chance that they will ever help...they are there. Here is a pretty unbiased review of night sights in general:
I also prefer a thin front sight blade. Sights are all about personal preference, and they're about as personal as underwear. Some will love a set like mine and the next guy will hate them and say they are just silly.
In short, just get a set you feel comfortable with and shoot the dang thing. :)

I personally like the factory glock sights, I wish they made night sights in the U pattern.

Get the thinnest Dawson front sight you can find. Match it up with a Warren Sevigny Comp rear. Dawson Precision usually has both in stock. I think my FO front sight is .110" wide. But plain sights may be even thinner.
Plain black sights will also be the most accurate because they are clean and plain. You won't accidentally use the silver, white, or center of a night sight instead of the black edges of the front blade.
But red fibre optic sights don't seem to hurt my shooting and really increase my speed in day light.

Another vote for Dawson Precision. Have used them on Glocks and 1911.

Been seeing more and more of these IPSCA, IDPA etc. etc.
