I wasn't planning on putting night sights on the 36, but I did find a rear adjustable sight for windage and elevation on Ebay for $28.99 and free shipping. I'm thinking, "adjustable rear sight"?, Might just be right down my alley! It is a Glock item so for that price, what have I got to lose?:)

the front site is plastic so you might want to replace it, is it used? if so; what was the mfg date? with a shelf life of 7 good years you might want to ask

Just picked up the gun yesterday, brand new in the box.

Still plastic and can be damaged very easily; Drawing from or re-holstering can easily knock it off. So why not night sights; It is amazing how well you can see them in low light conditions.

Believe it or not, I am very rarely out at night. Since my disability has gotten much worse (back), I have kind of become a "homebody". 95% of the time, my "running around" or errands are all done during the day. By the end of the day, my pain is usually bad enough that I don't really do much but just try to stay comfortable. (The VA is working on a remedy that's going to start with pain blocks but looks like surgery will be the end result.) Sorry didn't mean to get into a long story, but that pretty much sums it up.

Keep in mind night sights are not just for outside/night. They can be for a home intruder in your house/ yard. yea I know you have a flash light but flash light also make a good target for the BG. they work well in LOW light condition’s/sleepy eyes just getting out of bed.

For about 65 bucks you can get a set(front and rear) night sights on amazon.com. Good luck

if this is what you are talking about. its plastic too; the sights and the tool.

What works for one may not work for another. I have never broken a sight on any weapon I have owned. I have had a couple of metal sights come off of 1911s though.

It looks like ArmyCobra 1 is happy with his purchase and he knows what is best for his purposes.

My new rear sight arrived today! Getting it installed in the morning, and depending upon my back pain, will head to the range. I wouldn't even attempt to do the install myself. I was looking at an inexpensive "pusher tool" but my gun shops install for free! So, that being said, it's been a good day except for the "little lady" having the flu!!

It's always nice to know that Forum members are concerned about the well-being of the sights on our firearms!!:)

I always found stock (plastic) sights to be dead on, so never had the need for adjustable sights but will say any quality metal sights (esp night sights) would be an advantage.
