    G26 Fiber Optic Front Sight

    I would like to put a fiber optic front sight on my G26 but I would like to keep the stock rear glock sight. I have heard that when doing this you have to be careful as it can change your sight alignment. Can anyone recommend a front sight that works well for this purpose?

    I think either you didn't understand my question or I don't understand your reply.

    be careful with the fiber optic sights on handguns...with a good amount of shooting ive heard they tend to loosen up and sometimes the fiber optic drops out...they take a heck of a beating...

    I got the TFO on my g27 and g23 , make sure when the install the front sight they use a short screw and put some glue on because they will get loose , but after that that never had a issue

    I also have the TFOs on my G26 - but I have them front and rear, in contrasting colors (green/yellow).
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    As long as the new sight is .165 your alignment should be close to stock
