    I know this has probably been asked about a hundred times by now, but what is a good aftermarket sight to put on a Glock. I have looked at 10-8 Performance, but they rust. I also am looking at the new EMS Claw sights once they become available later this month. Any suggestions? As always, thanks.

    Maybe the better question is what sights do your eyes pick up the best?

    Nothing rusts if you take care of it as you should.

    Myself, if you can find better sights then Meprolite or Trijicon night sights?

    I'd like to know what they are.

    I started shooting in 1959 with a .22 single shot rifle. Up until 1991 when I bought my first Glock, most (if not all) of my guns had at least one sight that was all or partially steel. That included rifles, pistols and revolvers. In fact, a common term to describe them was/is "iron" sights.

    Have we become so lazy we don't even give our guns a final wipe down with an "oily" rag that includes the sights? I'd hate to think that's a reality among modern, "wonder" gun shooters ... it certainly isn't among seasoned shooters like myself.

    Now days the trend is toward stainless steel, plastic and high grade coatings on Aluminum and other metals perhaps. But the ruggedness of steel far outweighs its propensity for rust. I don't find it taxing in any manner to wipe down my guns that still have their factory installed "iron" sights. In fact I find it a pleasure to treat them well.

    Get TruGlo TFO Sites!!!

    @rbernie; I hate the Heine sites on my Taurus PT140 MilPro. The guns a keeper but sooner or later gonna R&R the 8.

    @OP; On my G4 G19 I have TruGlo TFO sites. Wish all my S/A's had these sites. My EMP9 does have the factory fixed combat sites w/tritium inserts, which are about as good as the TFOs. BTW, no 1 or 2 dot... for me ••• <- of course, the green TruGlo. :)

    Well, "best" is pretty subjective, when it comes to sights. What works for my eyes may not work for yours. But the "best" sights in MY opinion, are 10-8 Performance sights. I've got a black .156" rear, and a fiber optic .100" front. They also make a .125 brass bead front, and .125 tritium front. I highly recommend them. Steel, good hook on the rear, good price, and I can get a very fast, very accurate sight picture with them. All my Glocks have been converted, or are being converted, to 10-8.

    LOL, I know you ain't including the TruGlo TFOs cause mine simply don't rust. Yea, I F/S CLP after every visit to the range but only wipe the sites w/clean dry cloth.

    ROFLMAO... after 2 days, seriously :rolleyes:

    TruGlo TFOs are the way to go. You can always see them, night or day, bright light or flat dark.
