    Nightsights for glock

    I have a brand new g19 with factory sights. I want to add night sights to it. The local shop said I could get a set of meprolights for around $110 installed, just curious if that is a good price.

    Its a little high, you can order a set of Ameriglo sights (I like the I-Dots) and use the promor code GSSF or Glocktalk and get 10% off, give them a look.

    I have both Meps and Trijicons on different Glocks...either will work very well

    Thats how much I paid to get my Mepro's installed on my Glock 26. It probably is a bit high. But the problem with asking a question like that online is the difference in price according to location. And even if you can order some cheap online, do you have the ability to put them on yourself or will you go somewhere for them to be put on and how much is that gonna cost you?

    I say weigh your options and see what works best for you. And congrats on the new Glock!

    Cool

    I have Big Dot Dot the "I" on my G-19 and G-23 and your price is about right for sights and installation.

    That price is not too far off. If I remember correctly I got a set for my G17 for around $80 and had them installed by a local gunsmith for $25. As a side note though I later changed back to the original sights. For me the Meps just seemed difficult for me to acquire and get on target. The best I could say for them was that they made my gun easy to find in the dark.

    Why don't you buy a good flashlight first?

    Night sights are fine, and they're really an important addition on a GLOCK, not because they glow in the dark but because they replace those chinsy plastic sights that GLOCKs come with. Remember, if it's too dark to see your sights it's too dark to ID your target. If it's light enough to ID your target, you don't need night sights.

    A good flashlight will do exactly what you want AND let you ID the target. That's where I'd start. If you absolutely must havenight sights, then Trijis, Meps, or any are about as good as another. I'm a real believer in Scott Warren's sights. I trained with him a couple of years back and he explained the rationale he used designing them; it's solid, they're rugged, and they really do add functionality to your GLOCK. I add the non-night sight version to every GLOCK I buy.

    That's pretty close. FYI-Meprolights from Glockmeister-$74+shipping $8.50= $82.50. So the local shop is charging $27.50 for install. A little high but not bad. I had Meps added to my CZ and it cost me $20. You can do the install yourself, it is very easy. The only thing you'll need is a front sight tool which is basically just a very thin wall 3/16" hex head driver. I actually had a driver in my tool box that fit when I did my nightsight install on my G30. If you don't have a driver you'll have to either buy one or buy the tool and that brings your cost very close to the $110.

    Most use of firearm situations take place in low light. I think night sights are pretty important on a defensive handgun. I have the Glock night sights on all of my Glocks. They are meprolight inserts in tennifer treated sights. They seem to be a little quicker to aquire a sight picture than the trijicons I had on previously. IMO

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    I intend on buying a flashlight, maybe a weapon mounted one as well, I had thought about a light/laser combo or a CT to go with it, not sure.

    It really depends on what the gun smith charges to install them. I know some who charge $50 to install them, and I know a few that will install them for free. The sights will usually run about $75 or so. I do shoot a lot better with the Glock night sights compared to the regular Glock sights.

    I talked to the gunsmith at the range and if I but them there for $110 it includes install, if I buy them elseware they want $55 to install.
