All Glock pistols come factory equipped with basic open sights outlined with white paint. These sights are used by aligning the front sight with the rear sight on the target. Custom sights for Glock pistols vary from enhanced versions of the standard sights to tactical laser sights. Laser sights do not replace the pistols open sights but supplement them.
Tritium Night Sights
The most basic enhancement of Glock sights is the replacement of the standard sights with Tritium night sights. These sights are treated with the luminous material Tritium, which causes the sights to glow in the dark. Tritium night sights do not require batteries and retain their luminous properties for more than ten years.
Internal Laser Sight
Internal laser sights are available for Glock pistols exclusively from Laser Max. Laser Max sights replace the guide spring of the pistol. Internal laser sights do not alter the dimensions of the pistol. However, Laser Max sights are not compatible with fourth-generation Glock pistols.
External Tactical Sights
Glock pistols have rails cut into the lower receiver that allows for tactical sights to be mounted. Many models’ external laser sights are also equipped with flashlights. There are also tactical sights available that project an infrared beam that can only be seen by night vision goggles, which are used for special operations.
Glock handguns are recognized throughout the world for accuracy and dependability. The Glock 17, was adopted as the official sidearm of the Austrian Army in 1982. Since then, Glocks have been utilized by police departments and military units in more than 50 countries, including the United States and Norway. Originally chambered for the 9 mm cartridge, Glocks are now available in .45 caliber, .40 caliber, .380, 10 mm and the .357 auto. No matter how reliable Glock 43 or well built it might be, it must be sighted in properly to attain accuracy.
1.Set up a paper target between 15 and 25 yards away from your shooting position.
2 .Put on safety glasses & a pair of ear plugs.
3. Load your Glock with five rounds of ammunition.
4. Position yourself in shooting position, with both hands on the Glock. If you have access to a bench or shooting table, place your hands on it to help steady your aim.
5. Point the pistol at the target. Hold the gun, so the front sight is positioned in the notch of the rear sight. The front sight should be centered between the back sights, so there is equal space on either side. The top of the front sight should be even with the top edges of the rear sight.
6. Aim the gun at the bottom part of the bull’s-eye on the target. Hold the sights so that the bottom edge of the bull’s-eye looks as if it is resting on the top edge of the gun sights.
7. Fire five rounds at the target; inspect the grouping of the bullets.
8. Adjust the sights as needed. If the bullet grouping is an inch or two to the left of the target’s center, move the rear sight slightly to the right. If the grouping is an inch or two to the right of the center, move the rear slightly to the left. You might need to raise the rear sight if the grouping is below the front edge of the front sight. Conversely, you might need to lower the rear sight if the grouping is above the top edge of the front sight.
9. Shoot another five-bullet grouping after you have made adjustments. Continue shooting five bullet groupings — and adjusting the sights — until your Glock 43 shoots accurately.
