You won’t find a lot of fans of the standard iron sights on GLOCK pistols. There’s nothing wrong with the…they’re perfectly functional. But they also seem to be one of the first things that are swapped out by those who own GLOCKS.
Tyrant Designs makes a series of nicely machined 7075 aluminum iron sight options for GLOCK pistols and I chose their gold two-piece version for my G19 Gen5 MOS.
On the left above is the stock sight GLOCK puts on their pistols. In the middle is the Tyrant two-piece design I put on my G19 (they make one with a red aluminum insert, too). On the right is Tyrant’s one-piece sight design that uses the same larger “shield” front sight shape
The Tyrant rear sight is made of the same 7075 aluminum alloy. The notch is the same “shield” shape as the front sight and the chevron serrations prevent glare.
The gold front sight insert is very visible outdoors and in normal interior light. That gold post pops really well and gives you a quick sight picture.
Note that the sloped, anti-snag rear sight extends forward just enough from the rear dovetail to keep you from swapping out your MOS plate. If you have a standard GLOCK, you’ll never have to worry about it. If you have an MOS pistol and want to install a red dot, just know that you’ll have to remove the rear sight before removing the plate. You can then reinstall the rear sight.
I also have Tyrant’s threaded match barrel on my G19.
The 416R steel barrel has a 1:10 twist and is threaded for 1/2-28 for use with your favorite can.
One item I haven’t had a chance to install yet is Tyrant’s I.T.T.S. GLOCK trigger. It installs on the standard GLOCK trigger bar and has a flatter shoe which I prefer and tend to shoot better.
I’ll get around to installing it soon and burn enough ammo to give it a good workout. More to follow.
