How to Upgrade Your Glock Rear Sight
Changing out your old rear sight can change your whole game. You can easily make more rounds with the best possible accuracy and consistency. It makes little changes that can add yards to your scorecard. Changing out your rear sight is easy and quick, but has a lot of advantages as well. Here is how you do it.
o Changing out your rear sights may require some minor fitting. The most popular style of rear installation is the GLock Front sight assembly. The front sight usually fits in the channel on top of the pistol grip. Switching from a front to rear sight requires a tiny change in elevation, usually less than one-half inch. The GLock Front sight assembly tool is useful for easily installing the new sight.
o Adding a laser range finder to your handgun can improve accuracy significantly, especially at longer ranges. Laser range finders are often available on top of the pistol grip. They are available in many different styles to fit most hand held handguns, including low light models.
o Adding a slide cover to your handgun can give you better accuracy in any light environment. Most manufacturers make a slide cover that fits over the entire assembly. Some slides are made with rails along the bottom of the frame to act as a rail on which to install a front sight or laser range finder. A rear sight dovetail assembly can be installed in place of the rails. This is also an excellent choice for those who use their handguns for hunting.
o Changing out your rear sight can improve stability for a given cartridge. When shooting, the front sights are normally mounted on top of the slide. A slide cover, with a small notch in the center, can be slipped over the front sights on a regular model. When mounted in this manner, it will keep the top and bottom sights separate from each other, thus improving stability. There are many options available for this type of upgrade, including different sized slides, different colors, and various patterns.
o Replacing your OEM Glock sights with Aimpoint sights will allow for more precision and less glare at night. Because the Aimpoint brand of gun sights uses a fiber optic aiming point, they offer the best possible accuracy in any low light conditions. The polymer sights do not have any metal components, thus eliminating concerns about corrosion, breaks, or distortion. Unlike other types of sights, Aimpoint polymer sights are designed to work in any temperature, from cold to hot, and they can even be used underwater. There is no need to lubricate or adjust the sights as often as traditional sights. This makes them an ideal choice for those who live in areas where low light conditions are common.
o Replacing the sights on your glock pistols with Aimpoint is a great way to upgrade your pistol. Because of their compact size and ease of use, they are very popular with everyday people who prefer to carry only one type of handgun. An Aimpoint rear lens is often included when you purchase new models of glock. This allows you to quickly adjust for any changes in target distances. With a full 10-power magnification, the scope offers clear image resolution and crisp construction so you get crystal clear images every time.
o For users who like to hunt large game, the new Aimpoint Compaq range has an innovative hybrid cross bow design. The user is able to adjust the cross bow heights for different game, ranging from large cats to deer. Because the height of the cross bow is adjustable, it is possible to switch between short and long range shots, which increases the opportunity to get closer to the animal. The elevation of the bow mount can also be adjusted to help the user maintain the best shooting position, which improves both accuracy and distance.
