    The CLAW rear sight was designed to aid in one handed manipulations and it does just that. I've had it on my Glock 19 for a while and here's what I've found.

    Pros:
    -It really grabs onto hard surfaces to aid in one handed racking of the slide
    -Standard heights for Glock (large and small frame), and M&P pistols
    -Black nitrided finish for durability and hardness
    -Cost. It's only $24 for the rear sight. Tough to beat that.


    Cons:
    -I'd like to see serrations on the rear of the sight but that would likely add cost. It's a trade off I suppose.

    Here's a video with some shooting, close up shots of the sight on the gun, and my overall thoughts one the sight:

    The whole reason the wedge shaped rear sights became popular was because people were slicing their hand up in the rear sight during jam clearing drills.

    This one looks like it'll take a pretty good chunk out. But it'll grab a belt edge well...

    Which is more likely: having to clear a jam, or having to clear a jam one handed?

    Yeah, they look sharp, and like they'd snag on everything.

    Clearing a 'normal' malfunction without a doubt in my opinion. But, having the option of easier one handed manipulation is a nice feature to me. Is it a "must have?" No. For a $24 way to get rid of the crappy Glock factory rear sight it's worth it to me.

    I carry this gun a lot and haven't had it snag on anything to date FWIW.
