Tyrant CNC Glock Compatible Night Sights: Nighttime Accuracy Unveiled
Listen here, folks. The few pins and screws that make up the sight of a Glock might not seem like much when you look at the whole picture. But, damn it, these little components are vital partners when you find yourself in a hairy situation. They can either bust your ass or save it.
So, when Tyrant CNC knocked on the industry’s door with their Glock Compatible Night Sights, we propped up our ears as we did with every gear that promises a shift in the game. Boy, was it worth it?
The purpose of a night sight is to give you a clear aim in the dusky hours. They need to be precise, durable, and bright. But most night sights out there have made a habit of failing when you need them most.
Like a dead lantern in a horror flick. So, the first thing we eyeballed was how the Tyrant CNC Glock Compatible Night Sights were holding up.
Milled from 4140 steel, these sights are built from the ground up to take a beating and still stay intact. The front sight features a tritium plus fiber optic illumination circle that ensures you don’t lose your target in the dark. And the rear sight is solid steel. That’s one tough cookie if you take our word.
Separating From Other Glock Compatible Night Sights
Now listen, we went for accuracy tests. Because when it’s you against the bad guy, you can’t get hosed by a poorly constructed sight.
This is where your buck would feel worth a damn, let me tell you. The Tyrant sights gave us precision we’ve rarely seen. Those front and rear sights give you a sight picture that could only be described as lightning-fast and slap-in-your-face prompt. You get your target locked, squared and delivered, in a blink of an eye.
Glock Compatible Night Sights Installation, a Cake-walk or a Drag?
First thing is you will need to remove the current Glock Sights. We suggest some tools that will make the whole process easier.
This tool makes a perfect fit for square slides like on Glocks. The vertical adjustment and a Ridged solid jaw to support the slide not allowing it to easily move in a vertical or horizontal direction while in use.
Here are some shots we took while we removed the existing Glock sights.
Once you have the old back sight removed, we recommend another tool made for removing the front sight and installing the new Glock compatible front night sight.
The rear sight was probably toughest, but the front was much easier. Here is a comparison of the old and new front sight.
You can see where the front screws in.
The installation includes fitting the front sight with a 3/16 hex screwdriver and securing the rear sight using a Glock rear sight tool. If you’re packing these in your arsenal, you’re set. Worry not if you don’t because these tools aren’t hard to get your hands on. And if you’ve got some crafty hands on you, you can have them installed in 10 minutes tops.
Tyrant has great video to help if you get stuck at any point.
