    Really Nice Competition Sights: Taran Tactical

    Yesterday I installed a set of sights on a Glock G35 being used in USPSA competition, and I was so impressed with them that I wanted to pass along a word of recommendation.

    The sights are a set with a fixed rear and fiber optic front, from Taran Tactical Innovations TTI Glock Ultimate Fiber Optic Sights Set [GSSF-00001] - $84.99 : Taran Tactical Innovations

    They are very nicely finished, with a .220" high, .115" wide front sight and a slightly narrower notch (.125") on the rear sight. Read the full description at the link above, it looks like they put some thought into these sights.

    What I found remarkable was the ease of installation of the rear sight. I have never, repeat NEVER seen a rear sight fit a Glock dovetail so perfectly. The combination of a nice, smooth finish on the sight with precise sizing allowed me to install the sight with an MGW sight tool without ever having to touch the sight with a file. It was perfect out of the box! With no pressure it fit about 1/4 of the way into the dovetail, from there on it went perfectly into position with the MGW tool. I'm sure it could have been easily mounted with a hammer and punch as well.

    For those among us who install sights fairly regularly, this is something to consider.

    Those are well thought out sights. I currently use an Ameriglo FO front and the original OEM rear sight (blacked out) on my G22 based on one of your earlier recommendations.
    These sights take that general reasoning and highly refines it. I may give these a try, thanks for sharing!

    Looks very promising, Chris!!!

    How does the sight picture compare with the Sevigny competition sights?
    Also, did you use the MGW slanted sight pusher or the vertical one?
    Question your assumptions

    The sight picture looks different to me, a little "tighter" alignment of the front and rear, but I only got a quick look in my garage. The owner of the gun has used these before, and I've installed Dawsons for him, so these are apparently an improvement for him. But he's got younger eyes than I do....and he's a Master Class shooter.

    I used the straight-sided MGW pusher on this one.

    Update;

    First, thanks to OT for the photos!

    I installed a set of these sights on the G34 that I shoot in USPSA Production Division. Again, the installation was very easy, this is a high quality product.

    These sights replaced a Dawson adjustable rear sight and .300" fiber optic front sight. The difference is that the new rear sight is a bit smaller in external dimensions, and the front sight's fiber optic is noticeably larger and more clear, it really stands out. There was some thoughtful design work put into this front sight, it's not just a copy of other makes.

    In an email dialog with the Taran Tactical people (it may have been Taran) I learned that they offer the rear sight in .230" height, which I needed because of the target load I'm using in this gun (147 grain bullet going 866 fps..it hits the target high..). I was a little uneasy about the height of the front sight, but it worked out perfectly. Point of impact was the same as the Dawson sight set I was using, which has an adjustable rear sight.

    So far, so good. I will take this gun to a match on June 14th, and will post any further comments if there's anything to say.

    One thing worth mentioning here is the customer service at Taran Tactical. When I ordered the first set of sights, they didn't show up for about a week, so I sent them an email. They immediately sent me another set via 2-day service without charging me, they just wanted me to return the original set (if they ever showed up).

    That, my friends, is customer service.

    These sights are packaged with both red and green replacement fiber optic rods. All you need to do is make the change, or ask for them to be delivered with green.
