AMERIGLO Optic Compatible Sight Set for Glock
As awesome as pistol optics are, like everything electronic, they can fail. The battery can die. The optic could get damaged. We believe it’s important to have a backup sighting solution when able. Suppressor-height sights are the ticket. Available here are two versions: The GL-429 which has a blacked-out rear and front sight, and the GL-511 which has a red front sight post.
If you’re using these irons as a backup to a pistol-mounted optic, we recommend the all-blacked-out, GL-429 so there isn’t a red front sight post competing for visual attention with the red dot of your optic.
If you’re using these irons for shooting with a suppressed Glock with no optic, we recommend the GL-511, as the high-vis orange front sight makes front sight/hard target focus much easier.

For the rear iron, you can use a brass punch and hammer, but it is very difficult to do, let alone do it accurately. The best tool for the job is a Wheeler Engineering Sight Tool. They are pricey, but a wise investment. Get a couple of buddies or family members that can all benefit from using it, have them pitch in, and it becomes a “community” tool that you can use to install / uninstall / tweak just about any ironsight on any handgun.
