    My wife picked up her Glock 17 OD today and ran through some 50+ rounds
    at the range! She loves every part of it*. At one point the brass ejected
    and bounced off the right-wall right down her shirt where it stayed and left a
    nasty blister. YEOW! (When home she applied aloe)

    Here are some quick pics of the beauty:

    THE QUESTIONS ARE:
    WHY did GASTON GLOCK use the 1/2 square rear sights?

    And can you recommend a better pair to install?
    Front sight is just fine, just need to replace back one.

    I made this little graphic to better illustrate my question:

    I always hated those sights. There are all kinds you can use depending what you like.

    I like these But if you like night sights then try these You There are all kinds though. Look around the net and see what you like best. If you're going ot go through the trouble of changing them then make sure you get what you really want. Or you might be doing it again ;)

    Gloves, that is a great illustration! I recently got a glock 22 and have not been liking that rear sight either. Guess I gotta throw on some nice sights I suppose :)

    Funny how some like the Glock sights and others don't.
    I prefer them for some reason. Shot with the three dot all my life but I like the Glock sight better.

    That's why you rarely see guys shooting while wearing Speedos. Well, maybe in California, but .....

    If you intend to replace that rear sight I would like to recommend glow-on.com I've used them before, plus you'll have enough for lots of gun sights, and it won't cost you a fortune, you can use your original sights.
    Here are some pics of my new Kel-Tec PF9 9mm ( is like a mini glock )

    Here are the standard ear sight, not fun at all and useles in a dark environment

    Like i said I've used the glow-on products before so I did this

    Now check it out, day and night difference, hope this helps
