    You could always get a grip reduction done. Wack off the finger notches, flatten the back strap, thin out the area on the side so you thumb can reach the mag release easier. While your at it get a trigger job done. 1.5 lbs break, shorten reseat by half. take out the over travel and pre travel.

    A perfect gun shouldn't need all that crap. Can't fix perfection.
    That's why nobody does anything to Glocks, because they are perfect right out of the box.

    I prefer the bomar (or bomar clones like the champions). I like the low mount adjustables. Black on black with the thin .090 front. The bomar style adjustables have click adjustability, so positive.

    Kind of serious stuff. The sights are not cheap, and there is $100-$200 of machine work to mount it into your slide. Then their is the refinishing. When what the best this is what you have to do though...

    I agree, I prefer Bomar style rear sights. Race cut is just a little hogged out notch. I prefer a .100 blade front though.

    A thin front is good but some rear sights just have too narrow of rear notch. The dawsons are way too narrow.

    A thin front will be the most accurate, but it will be slower. A thick front will be the fastest. For a self defense gun it might be best to have a wide rear notch and a .125 front

    For a competition gun you want a thin front to pick off those small steel plates. For a self defense gun you need something that you can find the front sight on quick as you track a target moving fast and agressive on you.

    The race cut hennie strait 8 night sights are what I recommend for a defensive pistol.

    you would have to buy the fiber optic front and the hennie rear seperately. Also many people are not race cutting their hennies they just claim they are already race cut. We get our hennie rears and cut all of them on a mill then back into the factory packaging. All we sell are race cut.

    Now with the fiber optic front the best one is the .100 fiber front from dawson precision. We should get some there is enough request for them. We personally run the black on black as it really is the fastest (if your really aiming) so I guess we have a bias.

    I'm using bomars, and it's wide enough for me to be fast enough, and faster sight picture is better obtained with trigger time/training. I've shot hogged out rears and I didn't really notice a big difference.

    I'll point shoot most targets at 7 yards, it's those pesky poppers at 20 yards, and steel plates I shoot OEO that kill me.
