The fiber optic dot has been moved up to the very top of the front sight so the shooter doesn't get confused with shooting off the top of the dot or a big, thick blade sitting above it, which can cause the shooter to shoot either too high or too low. The fiber optic bar is NOT partially embedded into the floor of the sight, which means more light reaches a greater portion of the circumference of the rod. Our shiny, stainless steel screw reflects even more light right to the middle of the rod. As an added bonus, the front sight is designed to also be compatible with the GLOCK factory screw in case it is dropped or lost at the time of installation.
The front of the rear sight is angled to allow one-handed charging from your belt, pants, or any other object. The front sight is .235" tall and .115" wide for perfect point-of-impact with the GLOCK 17, 17L, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 34, and 35. The rear is .245" tall. The tighter .125" rear notch helps dramatically when shooting small steel and tight shots at a distance with the. Rear serrations cut down on glare.
Both front and rear sights are billet stainless steel coated with Diamond Black Ion Bond 95 Rockwell hardness for the highest level of rust resistance and the strongest finish. No more pulling your gun out of your bag a week later and finding your sights rusted over, dinged, dented, or finding distracting, shiny corners or edges.
