My comment was mostly in jest, but I never bought "placeholder" sight argument. No other major manufacturer does this and is lucky enough to have their customers defend it for them.I look at that differently.... why do I want to pay money for sights I'm just going to peen out anyways? Would I prefer a set of steel sights? Sure... but if you're just going to pound them
out and throw them away anyways... Glock trying to assume that "everyone will like these sights" is absurd.
Then again if I had my way I would like a world where I could buy a car and choose the tires that I'm going to get on the car when I buy it... instead of just putting up with the crap they
give you. At least with Glock I know I'm not paying for sights I didn't want. Like how would you feel if they put XS big dots on their guns by default? You would be like "Why does Glock assume I'm 98 years old?"
How many people do you see at the range that still have the factory sights on their glock? I would say most of them. While you, me and everyone else on this forum would replace them same day...we're also not "most" gun owners.
Glocks are good guns...but adding basic steel sights wouldn't increase the cost of the gun.
