    On glocks, when you "build a castle" with your sight blades (all blades level, all the way across), I see a 3/4 dot. Other sights aren't like this for me, but glocks are for some reason...and it works. Ever since i discovered that sight picture I shoot better

    Brand new out-of-the-box G19 Gen 4 shows the identical sight picture you see. My solution is a set of Meprolight, TruGlo or Glock factory night sights ASAP.

    Chris, in your illustration of "what I see" and "what I should see", I see significant difference in
    the top of the front sight post and the dot. What should I see? This is an interesting post, and
    by the way, my eyes don't see like they have in the past.

    When I get the top edge of the front sight aligned with top edge of the rear sight (equal height) and the front sight blade centered in the rear sight notch (equal light), what I see is the bottom half of the dot on the front sight being obscured, that's the best way for me to explain it. On other guns with similar dots on the front sight, I can see the entire dot.

    First thing I do with a new Glock is put on a set of Mepros, so I honestly can't remember what the stock sight picture looked like to me.

    Due to the grip angle of Glocks the slide is slightly angled up to me in my natural shooting position. Therefore the front site is the first thing I see when I draw and put the gun on target. I combat shoot mostly these days not target shooting so perfect perfection is not what I'm looking for. I speed shoot mostly and I shoot very tight groups but they're all about 2 to 3 inches high.
    Pretty much any Glock I pick up
