    I am new to Glocks, but want to get a Glock 30 for my CCW when I get back from this tour. I read on another forum that Glocks come with plastic sights. Is this true?? And if so is there a shop that sells metal sights that look like the stock ones? Because I really like the sight picture on the stock sights, but I'm not sure about them being plastic. Thank you in adanvce for any responses!

    Yes they're plastic. Personally, I've never had an issue with the plastic sights in 14 years of Glocks and if there were a significant issue Glock wouldn't have used the same sights for over 25 years. I've never looked for metal sights with the same configuration as the plastic ones, so I don't know. The only replacements I've used are 3 dot night sights.

    I recommend night sights. Most if not all night sights come in medal casings.

    I had a bad experience where the plastic sights move as I shoot. After every mag, the sights moved. I tried relying on just the front sight for a few mags, and after about 3 mags, the rear sight was actually hanging off the side a bit! I understand this is not a regular occurrence, but it does happen and that's why I don't trust them.

    I have also pushed a lot of sights, and over 50% of the time, the factory plastic sights break when pushed off.

    If you are dead set on the sight picture of the original Glock sights, you can order steel sights and have them put on. The only problem with the steel sights is the front site is staked on, rather than screwed on like most sights are now days, so you will have to find someone who can stake them on.

    Below is a link I just googled. For the Glock 30, you will need the 6.9 rear, and of course a front.

    Here is what the Meprolight tritium ML-10222 night sight looks like on my 30sf.

    Not too shabby! How much did they cost you? (If you don't mind me asking) And did you put them on yourself or did you take them to a gunsmith?
    Also I noticed you have the Gripforce adapter. Do you like it?

    That's because the link shows Glock Night Sights, which are made by Meprolight. You paid for the Meprolight name.

    $57 is a great price! They charge $65 at the factory!
