    Fell in love with the sights on the Steyr pistols: can I get them for a GLOCK?

    I was at a gun show last month and handled a Steyr M-A1 in .40S&W and the thing that really captivates me about that gun is the design of the sights.

    They have the triangle front and trapezoid rear. We all know that when a target is distant, trying to figure out where a shot will go laterally when the front sight blade is wider than the target can make it anyone's guess. That's why I love the idea that with the Steyr's sights, you get a POINT at the top of a triangle to place laterally on your target. Why others don't do that, I can't figure out.

    So, my desire is to have such sights on my GLOCK -- which I feel would bring it another notch closer to being the "perfect" gun.

    Does anyone make simple trapezoid sights like those on the Steyrs, for other guns?

    Unrequited, thanks for the link. Those are worth looking into, for sure! I'll be doing that.

    Any others around?

    Suresight is the closest you're going to find. I'm waiting for a full tritium night sight version, but I may cave in and order the current one for my XD. They have a highly fluorescent coating with a large surface area, so even in low light they really stand out. In darkness, they still have a phosphorous glow, but it's only stored energy from sunlight exposure - a couple of hours, max.

    PJ.....contact Steyr USA, or go to eBay, Gunbroker, maybe even Numrich and see if they sell the sights (I purchased a second pair on eBay really cheap for one of my Steyr M's). A gunsmith might be able to install them on your Glock.

    I really like those sights too; I find that people either like them or hate them.

    Thanks for the tip. I think I'll keep those in mind when I put together my next 1911.

    Now I'm confused. I double checked, and they have information about 1911's on their contact page. Guess we'll have to see what reply I get.

    I hate backorders!!!

    It sucks that they don't have tritium, those would be great sights, maybe i need to email them and say "get off your rear and make some real night sights"

    Wow... those suresights really jump out at you! May have to look into them for the Glock myself. Still loving the Big Dots though.

    I think that's polling for future models, if you actually go to their order page, 1911s aren't listed.

    Problem is, I really would like to see them on a gun, and perhaps try them out, before I dropped ninety bucks plus shipping to get them. I also don't know how they get installed. There is not enough detail about them on the website.

    I like a rear sight that slides into the slot on the GLOCK's slide, not one that has an overhang outside that slot. I used to have IWI night sights on a GLOCK and had them removed, because with concealed carry, I found that gunk was collecting under there and I did not care for that.
