There are a lot of different sights that can be used on a Glock, but not all of them are created equal. Some sights are more accurate than others, and it just depends on what you’re looking for in a sight. The size and shape of your firearm, the type of ammunition you’re using, your shooting stance, and even the light conditions can all determine your level of accuracy.
Some Glock sights are better than others when it comes to providing a clear sight picture and withstanding the rigors of daily use. When choosing Glock gun sights, you should consider the type of shooting you will be doing most often. In this blog post, we’ll give you a rundown of some of the best options out there so you can make an educated decision about which ones will help you shoot more accurately.
Glock Night Sights
Night sights are considered the most accurate sights and they are also the most expensive. They are also the most popular upgrade to Glock pistols because they solve many problems that the factory sights have. They glow in the dark, allowing you to easily see your targets in low-light conditions.
Some night sights will have a tritium front and tritium rear while others are just phosphorous in the front and black in the rear. Tritium sights are more expensive, but phosphorus sights can be easily damaged by moisture and will eventually stop glowing.
Red Dot Sights are the fastest to aim and shoot. These sights show you exactly where the bullet will hit even before you fire the shot and are very popular with police officers and the military who need fast accuracy. However, if you have never used a red dot sight before, you will most likely need to practice using it. They have the advantage of being relatively unobtrusive since they are small, so it doesn’t get in the way of other sights you may want to use.
The good thing about red dot sights is the very low amount of visible distortion of the target. On the flip side, they cost more than the usual iron sights.
Iron sights are the standard, stock sights that come with most handguns. They are generally metal and have dots or other shapes to help you aim. The myth is that iron sights are less accurate than Red Dot, night, or other sights. This is completely untrue. Iron sights are just as accurate as any other type of sight and in the hands of a skilled shooter, more accurate than any other type of sight in many cases. This is because iron sights allow you to acquire your target visually and then line up the sights.
Even with an amateur, they are accurate enough for their intended purpose, which is to hit a target within arm’s reach. If you extend the distances to longer ranges, say 5 yards or more, your accuracy may suffer depending on how skilled you are at shooting.
When it comes to choosing sights for your Glock, you have many options to choose from. Your choice of sights should depend on what you intend to use your Glock for and what you are looking for in terms of accuracy, durability, and price.
