Detailed Description

 

The high profile Vickers Elite Battlesight rear has a .145” wide, deep U-Notch for optimum sighting in low-light, dynamic range conditions and is a perfect match to our .125” wide front sights. The concave non-reflective rear blade is serrated 40 lines per inch, while the notch area is recessed into a semi-circular pocket for a crisp, protected sight picture. Two hardened set-screws ensure this sight will never shoot loose under the most demanding conditions.

This snag-free rear sight also has a shelf shape that enables one-hand slide cycling or malfunction clearance and a rugged, non-reflective matte black parkerized finish.

The Vickers Elite Battlesight is available with single dot yellow Tritium and plain black serrated rear blades and your choice of black serrated, green/red fiber optic, tritium and genuine, never dulling gold bead front sight styles. The high profile of the Vickers Elite Battlesight allows the use of a taller front sight and deeper rear notch for better sight tracking during high speed shooting situations.

Once you try this sight system you will be convinced that the Vickers Elite Battlesight is the best performance upgrade you can make to your Glock® pistol!

NOTE: Sights may require minor fitting and may not be returned after installation. The Vickers Elite Glock® Sight set requires the use of a .245”tall front sight for all caliber Glock® pistols except for .45 ACP and 10mm which will typically require the .230” front sight. Sights may require minor fitting and may not be returned after installation. These front sights are taller than factory Glock® and not compatible with standard factory rear sights without adjusting the sight height.

  • Overall Sight Height .325
  • Rear Blade Height .245

 

Wilson Combat Vickers Glock® rear sights are not compatible with factory Glock® MOS (Modular Optic System) slide models due to the rearward relocation of the sight dovetail position.

Glock Rear Sight Installation FAQ


 

Remove the magazine and make sure your pistol is unloaded. Remove and Field strip slide assembly and secure the slide in a padded vise. Remove existing rear sight with hammer and punch.  Clean rear sight dovetail and press in new rear sight from right to left.  If rear sight will not start into approximately 50% of the dovetail you may need to remove very small amounts of material from the bottom and sides of the dovetail portion of the rear sight-usually just a few light passes will do.  A safe sided dovetail file, small diamond hone or sanding stick are good tools for this. Go slowly and check your fit. Once you are able to get 50% of the sight base into the dovetail attempt to tap the sight in place with a hammer and non marring punch/dowel (wood, polymer, aluminum) or appropriate sight pusher. If using a steel or brass punch protect the sight/punch with several layers of duct tape. Fine adjust your windage with a rear sight armorers tool or non marring punch.  After you fine adjust rear sight windage install dual locking screws with a threadlocking compound like Loctite on the threads.  


Note-if the rear sight is loose in the dovetail your dovetail is cut oversize and the new rear sight may require peening on the edges of the dovetail for a proper fit.

Vickers Battle Sight with Tritium
I bought these for my Glock 19x to replace the factory night sights. I felt that the factory sights were too blocky and hard to get a full view of the target for precision shot placement. I love the one dot rear sight and it was easy to adapt to the change. Very bright and easy to pickup. I also am a strong believer in the U notch design after about 1200 rounds. I wish they were available with a “ carry melt” as the sharp machined corners on the sight notch don’t feel so good dragging on the skin from concealment.

Perfect sights for the discerning experienced shooter.
I just finished purchasing my third set of the Vickers sights and I obviously really dig them. This is also the first time I write a review for a product. The Vickers sights are identical to the Battlesight on my Supergrade , which in my opinion are the best sights I have ever used bar none. For the glock sights, and due to experience shooting in low to no light conditions for the past four years, I prefer the Vickers rear w/ tritium paired with the Vickers tritium front. These sights have only what is necessary when it comes to putting tritium on a rear sight: no white outline, a diminished glow in comparison to the front, and placed undistractingly below the u-notch. Some complain that having anything on a rear sight: dots, serrations, tritium, is distracting - this is simply a training issue. If something as simple as a small dot, serrations, or tritium vial is distracting you from focusing on the top corners of the front sight - you need to train more to alleviate that bad habit. Also it is not necessary to have three glowing dots in low light, so many sight makers on the market havent figured this out. Three dots in low light can cause you to sometimes confusingly misalign the dots. Vickers and Wilson have obviously done there homework as two is just fine. In low light just place one above the other if you need the reference and your set. Daylight shooting with these is a breeze as both front and rear tritium vials have no white outline. The serrations on the front and rear help reduce glare. Specifically, the serrations on the rear sight are done at a crisp subtle 40 lpi and do not cover the entire rear, rather the u-notch portion is actually cut deeper into a recessed pocket for a crisp protected sight picture. No other rear sight on the market does this and it shows Wilson and Vickers have done there research. Ive had experience with rear sights that are fully serrated like 10-8 and Proctor sights and the serrations on those are thicker and can take the crispness out of the sight picture, although not a major issue, it is just something Ive noticed and simply worked around with those mentioned brands. Ive also had experience with non-serrated rear sights like Ameriglo and Warren Tactical and although the sight picture is crisp, if the sun is at your back you get some glare. It is a nice touch that Wilson and Vickers have combined the best of both worlds and put on only what was needed and removed what served no purpose. The protected sight picture is unique to this sight system as far as I know and works great. The Vickers rear is also NOT rectangle shaped but pyramid shaped, allowing you to see more of the target and whats to the left or right of the target, it also has a deep u-notch combined with a tall front sight to be able to track the front sight easily during rapid fire. This is something that has taken some time for me to get used to. Being able to see almost the entire blade of the front sight was jarring at first because of how Ive learned to pick up the front sight in other sights that do not have a deep notch. So for some expect a bit of a learning curve. The rear u-notch has a width of .145 combined with a .125 front. This is an ideal sight picture for a balance of speed and accuracy. At 15 yards and in I pick up the front sight quick. At 25 yards out to 100 yards the sights still allow me to call the shot accurately at speed due to them not covering up alot of the target and due to them hitting POA/POI. The rear sight comes with two set screws and have a steep shelf to be able to rack the slide off a belt, holster, or boot for one handed manipulation of the pistol. The only con I can bring up about these sights is that they are parkerized. Just keep any eye on them for any rust and every now and then treat the parkerization with a light coat of oil like FireClean and wipe dry. Make sure not to coat the tritium portion with oil! All in all great product for a great price. The rear tritium sight goes for $64.95 which is a steal! Great work Wilson and Vickers!

Vickers Sights
Very nice. Being an old dude, I went with the gold bead front sight and personally find it to maybe be the best all around set up for varying light conditions. It is more visible than anything else I have tried whether paint, tritium, or fiber optic in semi-dark, but still usable on the range with the sun shining brightly on your back. I think the width of the front sight in relation to the width of the rear sight notch is just about right, too.

Another Top Notch Product from Wilson & Vickers
Originally bought same sight w/o tritium. I wanted tritium, but old eyes didnt see it. The email w/the rear with tritium got my attention. Bought two, but will add a third if it helps my daughter w/the G42 I recently purchased for her. Great sights. Well-made, like all Vickers stuff. And, sold by Wilson-that should help remove any doubt you might have as to how good it is. These guys only have the best.
