Glock offers two different upgrades to night sights. We chose the slightly more expensive Trijicon products front and rear. The Glock scored the best in our low-light test.
The Glock slide may be a little boxy, but the frame was smooth and snag resistant. A passive safety is inside the trigger face, and the slide release was shielded. The slide locks directly above the trigger were countersunk, and the magazine release was flat along the side. This kept the mag in place, but made the release more difficult to operate, in our view.
