Sights are the only part worth replacing in a standard Glock pistol. Fumbling with other parts isnít just unnecessary, it often leads to malfunctions. You know what they say about fixing that which is not broken. Also, sights are the weak point in the Glock due to being made of plastic and relatively fragile. During torture tests where Glocks are put through hell, the part that often breaks and does so before all others are the sights. Throw a Glock form a plane or car driving at 80 mph? No problem, but the front sight is likely to pop off.

It often happens that dovetails get chipped or bent, tritium tubes break during installation.
