    I'm thinking about getting one but I'd like to hear from people who have them not just vendor hype. Thanks to any and all who share useful insights.
     
  2. My carry 23 has Mepro's on it and after 11 years are still bright and useable.

    I have them on my g17c but mine is the ghost ring half rear sight and night sight front post they are good sights you have to get used to them I shot IDPA a long time with the stock sights but these are a good change

    The stock sights look like they'd do the job, I just can't stand having fixed sights on a gun. I looked at the glock adjustable sights but they looked a bit cheap to me, so i got to looking for a metal adjustable sight and saw this one. The night sight factor is nice but not the primary reason I'm thinking of popping off more than $100 (not including installation cost) for them.
     
  7. Mine are fixed sights and have held up well even through several wrestling matches. Never shifted.

    if the adjustable ones are as good of quality as the fixed ones you all have reported in with, they should be exactly what i want. I just can't stand fixed sights on a gun and want the option of adjusting windage and elevation. The only firearm i own that has fixed sights and will always have them is my old nagant revolver.

    I have never needed sights that are adjustable for windage and elevation because I will not need it at a distance that requires that. If you have to shoot something that is so far away you need to adjust your sights, get a rifle. Just my opinion.

    I just prefer to have the option to zero in my aim and not have to aim one side or the other of my target to hit it if the sights are not aligned properly...
    I do have a long gun and a carbine for distance shooting. I also have an old revolver with fixed sights.

    Thanks for the input DnJ90. I've done some research besides asking about them here and I'm planning to get them for $130 (front and rear) and then see if I can get them put on for a decent cost.

    I have four glocks with them installed. I love them. They are bright in bright light due to the white outline, and they are bright in low to no light. Glock sights are all adjustable for windage, you just have to move the back sight left or right. With a sight tool it is easy, with a brass punch it is doable. The meprolights are fantastic. I would not go with any other night sights than the meps unless they were glock night sights. I cannot stand the standard plastic glock sights, they just seem so unnatural to allign. The Meps are easy, three dots in a row equally spaced, and I can see them no matter what the light level. I like green on green, but other colors are available.

    Yea, if I have a choice between spending $100+ on sight tools, or spending $130 on an adjustable sight, I'll take the adjustable sights. :)

    Mine were off

    I just installed some meprolight fixed sights on my G34, but they were way off shooting to the left.. they seem to be properly lined up, but I'm going to adjust them a bit to see if I can get it dialed. Just sucks to have to tap them with a punch to adjust them. Did anyone have any problems with them being off after installation?

    I have fixed Mepro Tru Dots on my old gen2 19. They're a little dim after 17 years. I know it's time to replace them. Check around your local area, you might find someone who has a sight pusher that will install it for you or loan you the tool.

    If you were local to me, I'd loan you the tool or install them for you.
     
  18. Don't take offense, but it has to be asked- have you absolutely ruled out that you aren't shooting to the left? You need to shoot from a fixed rest to rule out any shooter error. Sights are sights- if the previous sights were centered on the frame and lining up fine, and the new sights are centered, then it's probably the shooter. Most issues boil down to the operator (I include myself in that, of course), not the gun.

    Glad I found this thread- I've been thinking about putting alternative sights on my Glocks, and wanted to know if the Meprolights were well regarded. I've used them for years on my Sigs, and have been happy. But, I didn't want to make assumptions about how they would accentuate a Glock.

    My wife has Meprollghts on her G26. They seem accurate to me.

    I got my mepro sight tru dots on my G19 for $87 with installation. Great glow. I suggest green /green. Hear a lot of talk that orange rears are dim. Can't go wrong buying from an Israeli company.
