    These are Ameriglos?

    Not paying attention to further specifics, it sounds like they were using up leftover sights from the FBI contract.

    I think the M pistols have the Agent sights with a rear U notch, and Glock OEM are the BOLD with a straight rear notch.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I have found even with the Gen 4 G26 I needed a .180 height front to ďdrive the dotĒ with 147gr HST.

    My rear sights are all Ameriglo Operator rears.

    The same setup works well on my Gen 5ís.

    BOLD with .180 front works on most Gen 4 and 5 pistols for me.

    I get the best results with the .180 fronts on my Gen 5s...

    Seems like a popular choice. I wonder what the reason is for the disparity from OEM? Why did they opt for higher?

    Taller. Better choice of words.

    I thought the Gen 5's were coming with .200...perhaps I'm mixing it up. I never measured mine...just accepted the BOLD's as received.

    10-4, when I was trying to get mine sorted I ordered both .180 & .200 to see what worked better as the ones that were on there were .160 and hitting like a bullseye hold. The .200 was low for my liking hitting behind the tritium and the .180 put it right rear the top of the blade but still fairly close enough for a drive the dot hold in a pinch. I donít have a 26 thought, all my testing was with my 17, 19 & 45s...

    I also got to mess around with one of our Team guys G26 last week...Gen 5 flair on the mag well, front serrations and 11 round magazines...seems way better than the regular version. If the rumors pan out that weíll be able to order them off the contract Iíll snag one, itíd be the perfect blaster for flying with.

    Thanks @TCB. I have Trijicon HDs on my other (Gen2.5) G26, Gen2 G19 and Gen4 G17, so these are the only Ameriglos I've owned. With the limited shooting I've done thus far, I can work with whatever the height of this front sight happens to be...though I'm sure if I were willing to spend the time and money, I'd be able to refine that over time.

    I just pulled out my digital caliper, and it looks like the front sight installed by the dealer is .180 He didn't send the original packaging along with the gun when he installed them for me, and I never bothered to check.

    (I had asked for a Blue Label gun with them already installed, but he had none available which also had the breech face cut. So he put a set on for me before shipping to my neighbor who is my FFL.)

    I prefer the same sight picture as you...top of the sights or drive the dot. I'm comfortable with either. Don't like a bullseye hold.
