I have some. I couldn't get them on the pistol using a regular sight pusher I had to use my other one that is a universal pusher. A lot bigger and more expensive pusher but works with just about anything. Anyway, I like the sights reminds me of rifle sights. (AR type) Due to extensive practice with the M4s and such in the military I find myself getting on target much faster with the ring sights versus regular sights.

For me they were a nice investment

I've shot them but don't feel I get the precision I do with regular sights. I see where you can get Combat Accurate hits quickly with practice though. I just want my sight picture to be consistent from pistol to pistol so if you have these on one and the rest are something else you might end up slowing yourself down. That was the case with me when trying out the half rings, XS Big Dots, etc.

I sprung to put a set on my issued G18C, and I like them for that purpose. They are very good for a quick sight picture, and they are fun when using the shoulder stock.

I was able to make head shots with them.

I saw a shoulder stock for a GLOCK in a gun store and the packaging stated that they were illegal and had to be registered with the ATF. What's up with that?

Same deal for me. Shot a 19 with them. I did'nt group that well but I was a bit faster with everything in the K5. I liked them, but for me, the rear sight looked out of place on that 19.

It makes the pistol a NFA weapon by having a barrel shorter than the required 16". It becomes what is known as a SBR (Short Barreled Rifle) and requires a $200 tax stamp from Uncle Sam to be legal. He can do it and get away with it on the G18 because that weapon has a even more restrictive stamp on it due to the sear inside it. Or because it is a agency weapon and is registered as such.

the ghost rings offer quicker site acquisition for some, but at the cost of a little less precision.


if you're in a shooting scenario, chances are you'll not have time to look for the sites, and the adrenaline pumping in your veins will almost assure that you won't even remember your guns has sites.

however, if you do feel the need for night sites that offer a quicker site acquisition, these are great ones. :)

That's what I figured with the SBR. I thought JL was getting away with it just because he's so cool. :cool:
