Default OEM Factory Adjustable Rear Sight

Hello all, Wondering if anyone has any info and experience about/with the OEM Factory Adjustable Rear Sight. Just purchased one from www.cheaperthandirt.com for my G23. Haven't received it yet but I'm anxious to install it and try it out.

I Also ordered an after market LWD .40 cal barrel for it. Very interested in seeing how it will shoot. I also reload and wanting to try using lead bullets as they are cheaper to use to punch paper at the range. Still working on a target reload. Feedback please.

Thanks,
FJM

fusion firearms has some nice low profile adjustable sights for $49, I would buy them but fitted all my glocks with hi-vis fo sights.

Thanks for the Inge Tape. Have you used the Glock adjustable rear sight? Got it and installed it (easy to Install yourself). It looks good. Also have the LWD .40 S&W barrel. I'll let you know how it shoots. The barrel is tighter than the stock Glock barrel. So I'll find out how shoots along with the sight. Anyone else have experience with Glock factory rear sights?

My G 34 came with the factory adjustable sights. They are descent, the adjustments are great for Windage, but the elevation adjustment is a little rough. Like I said, they are descent but but not top line. I do like mine with that being said.

Be sure to use the correct rear sight tool. You'll need to use an angled tool and not a straight tool.

Because you don't want your sight to end up like this!! A supposed professional did this.

The tool that came with mine is a very small very short straight screw drive. No actually a screw driver, just a small black plastic handle with a small flat blade.

Sorry, I thought you were talking about the adjustment tool, not the install tool. My bad.

It's all good. I knew you'd figure it out.

I was shooting a little left myself. Installed the Glock adjustable and once I had it adjusted properly I'm now right on. Still looking at the Mepro adjustable though,it just seems more robust.
