    Hi I just built A Glock from a stripped frame and now I need sights what would you recommend? It won’t be carried so night sights seem like a waste. I would be ok with factory sights but by the time I buy the sights around 20$ and the tools to install them I’m close to the cost to put night sights. Maybe factory metal sights? What would you put on it?

    An adjustable rear target, and front fiber optic from Dawson Precision. That's what I'd use, if it were me.

    I got TruGlo on mine and they are amazing, but my G20 is more defense oriented so I like the night sight capabilities.

    Camera on my phone doesn't do them justice. They really are bright.

    First choice – Yellow Trijicon HD’s

    Second choice – Dawson Precision fiber optic front with a blacked-out Glock steel rear sight.

    If you were to go with Dawson Precision, the nut driver to install the front comes with the sight. And the Glock rear doesn’t need any special tools to install.
    I use a squared off piece of brass and a small brass hammer. And a vise to hold the slide and some tape to protect the finish.
    The Glock rear sights just tap in, The Trijicon rear will require fitting.

    Most of my Glocks have Sevigny competition sights for range use.
    Carry guns have variations of the Sevigny 1 lamp night sights.

    +1 on the brass drift, although I never thought of (or used:oops:) the tape.

    I really like the night sights that came in my Glock 19X. I did some checking and they are made by Trijicon. The front and rear are both green but the front is slightly smaller so it’s easy to pick up. I do wish it were a different color. Compared to the factory night sights on 2 of my S&W revolvers the Glock sights are definitely superior. They are easy to see in low light and in complete darkness.

    I use Truglo TFO's. I understand you don't need them for night sights, but they're also great daytime sights as they're really bright regardless of lighting conditions.

    So far I really like the AmeriGlo I-Dots I recently put on.

    Plain jane glock sights work just fine. That's what I have and the bullet hits right where I point it.

    The last set I bought was Ameriglo. I like them.
    If you just want a set of sights, I have a set of factory sights in my parts box that you can have.

    That's really why I dislike the three dot arrangement.

    The front sight is quite a bit dimmer than the two dot/rears, which is what is supposed to be superimposed on the target. You aren't going to squeeze the trigger until you identify the target with a light anyway, just always bugged me.

    They can be tapped in with a brass or nylon punch, but a sight tool is the best. Your LGS may have the tool and install it for a small fee.

    Even though you don't plan on using it for defense purposes, just put on some trijicon or meprolites. Besides the glow factor, they are just good sights.
