What night sights are you running? Did you have to file them to fit?

I will say this thing is pretty snappy.

Snappy yes but not inaccurate in my experience. Kinda rough on the trigger finger too but not a big deal unless shooting quite a bit.
I’d have some others make sure the sights are off but then I’d probably contact Glock to have them check it out.

I'm not about to spent the money for a dot sight. $400 is way too much. They will eventually get cheaper, and better.
Definitely contact Glock. They pump them out like crazy. A few goofs get through every once in a while.
Glock has a reputation for making them right when you send them in.

I ordered the Trijicon Bright and Tough 3 Dot Night Sites from Optics Planet for both my G43Xs. They should be arriving soon. They have good reviews. Let’s see once they arrive.
As far as everything else, both my G43Xs work great.

Let's see send gun back to Glock to replace cheesy plastic sights for new cheesy plastic sights. That's what you're thinking? o_O

I think the Trijicons were the ones he had to file to fit.

If they are that far off, yes. Don’t want to upgrade to different sights, yes.
Are the sights the only issue or possibly a different defect in the gun?

I’ve changed out most of mine myself as I like night sights. I’ve had one or two I should’ve taken a file to but forced them on with the pusher.:oops:

Send it back to Glock to be checked and ask for metal sights. Cost difference of about $20. If you are looking for fancy sights you are going to have to pay a lot more.

Ironically, I have a different problem with the 43X. My hand position for single handed draw and rapid fire puts my thumb directly over the magazine release. Twice I’ve dropped the mag mid string. This doesn’t occur with my 17, 19’s, 26, 42 or 43.
At 67 I’m not about to change a grip that works for me. So, there it sits in the safe until my kids decide if they want it.

Can you post a pic of your grip? Do you have large hands?

Yes, The instruction manual that came with my 'Night Fision' sights says that you may have to fine sand down to make a proper tight fit. Are you forcing yours? A big no no.

I have installed many NightFission sights on Glocks and one set on a shield. All required a bit of sanding and then easily installed with a sight pusher. The shield was a bit more complicated because of the offset sight profile.
