I had a chance to run a low light drill tonight with Warren Tactical’s Sevigny Fiber Optic Sight.  These sights have become very popular for Glocks in the competition circuit.  I installed them on a customer’s 17L, and we headed to the range to sight them in before we ran out of time.

The sights come with red and green fiber optic rods.  The owner of the 17L chose green, and I have to say it would have been my choice as well.  As dusk was upon us, we were able to pick up the front sight incredibly well.  The rear sight is notched wide so there is plenty of light on either side of the front sight making acquisition easy.  The sights shot well, and we were both pleased.

A few things to think about:

  1. The sights required some modification to get them into the dovetail.  It wasn’t terrible, but it did require a little thinking.
  2. They cannot be installed with the Glock factory sight pusher because the sight has a lip on the front of it making alignment impossible.
  3. They shot a tad bit high for both of us.  Not the end of the world for a competition shooter, but it is a fixed rear, so that is something to keep in mind.

Overall, I thought they meet our expectations, and for low light shooting they performed great.
