    What are my options for plain black steel Glock sights? I want all black sights before painting the front post red like Tom Givens did with his Glock 35 but can only seem to find Sevigny sights which were almost $80. Are there cheaper options for quality all black steel sights?
    Thanks

    Warren Sevigny, Comp, Carry, or Tacticals are worth every penny. Sometimes I'll use a thinner Dawson front.

    Midway USA has no sights for the G34/35/41 etc. Usually only short fronts. So watch for that.

    35 takes a taller front sight than a 19. .235" IIRC.

    I know practically nothing about Glock sights, but per the Ameriglo site, it indicates the G17 and G34 would use the same sight, so perhaps Midway simply lists G17 sights (I don't know if they do list G17 sights), with the knowledge they'd fit a G34?

    Maybe. But usually a 19/23 is .215 and a 34/35 is .245. A 17 is somewhere in between.

    I've had to buy 2 front sights for my best Glocks. So sometimes I start with a cheaper plain black sight, see how far off I am, then recalculate for a custom Dawson font sight. Dawson has a sight program on their website.

    I want my impact to ''dot the i'', above my front sight so it's easier to see.

    I use Dawson’s adjustable on mine but they are not cheap either.

    If you buy a black sharpie, your stock sights can be black.

    Doesn't Dawson offer a "perfect impact" or some such guarantee? You buy a sight, and if it's off, they send you the replacement to get it to work. At least that was my understanding.

    Here it is...

    Yeah. I never took advantage of it. I'm extremely partial to exactly where my competition pistols impact. I'd feel wrong costing them for my own fickleness.

    Some of those slightly off sights were perfect for my other Glocks I bought later, so it worked out in the end. I'm actually considering buying an assortment of front sights for my tool box.

    They carry Warren rears, so it's perfect. Just give them a call.

    I believe that only applies if you buy both front and rear sights from them. I generally buy Dawson fronts and live with the OEM rear. Their caculator has come in very handy and has always worked properly for getting POI exactly where I want.

    I like Ameriglo, half the price of Heine,Warren etc. and the website is easier to use. I actually just got a set of Ameriglos in earlier today to replace a set of Heines which cost twice as much. The tritium dot fell out of heinefront site and I couldn’t be sure I was getting an exact match from heine despite having the original SKU. So I just ordered a full replacement set from Ameriglo for almost the same as a heine front site.

    I went with dawson precision chargers on mine. I opted for the fiber optic front, but they are available in all black as well.
