Night Sights v. Fiber Optic Sights for pistol
 
Howdy all. I am replacing my Glock 30's front sight with either a night sight or a fiber optic sight. I don't want to replace the rear sight at this point, but I'm open for discussion on the pros and cons on each type of front sight. Of course, y'all can talk about complete sight systems (if that's the right term) all you want.

FWIW, my current front runners are the Hi-Viz fiber optic front sight, and the Glock factory night sight.

You don't want the Glock factory front sight - I had a full set on a Glock 22 once upon a time...and unlike others, the front sight is staked in there. Are you still running the standard plastic rear sight? Why don't you want to upgrade, if you don't mind me asking?

I recommend taking a look at Heinie's "Straight 8" setup - I really like the SlantPro with a wide rear notch.

Failing that, Trijicon's standard night sights are an option that thousands have gone with. Here's a link to the factory website: LINK

Do you mean the factory night sights, or the "adjustable" plastic ones?

As for the rear sight, still using the factory. Honestly, until they break or get worn off, I like 'em as they are. I really like the white "u" shape and its contrast with the black Glock finish. I'll most likely get the steel factory sights at some point. The main reason I want to change any sights is to enhance the visibility of the front sight in lower light conditions. (I tend to focus on the front sight.)

Also, who makes the factory night sights for Glock? Wasn't it Trijicon, at least until recent times?

Sorry - I meant the factory night sights...

Both Trijicon and Meprolite could be had "back in the day." Not sure who's making "theirs."
