    Glock 26 Gen3 Front Sight question

    Have seen vids replacing sights on Glocks....and they either use pliers to pull out front sight or use a tap to tap it out from inside the slide.

    Mine looks like it has a hex bolt........

    Thinking of going with XS big dot sights so before I tear up this one I need to know if it's a screw or punch out front sight.

    Thanks

    You just unscrew it. This works very well:

    Be sure to use some red loctite on the new one to keep it secured where it's supposed to be.

    If it comes with one, that'll work.

    Use the tool that comes with the Big Dot. Fitch
