How to Use a Glock Sight


A Glock pistol has two sights on the top front and rear of the metal slide. The front sight has one white dot on it, and the rear sight has a white marking on it that looks like a square horseshoe. Every Glock pistol is virtually the same besides size and caliber. You must know how to aim your Glock properly for your own safety. Aiming is simple to do and may safe your life or the life of your loved ones.

Things You'll Need

  • Your hands
  • Pull the metal slide backward all the way until you can't pull it back any more. Release the slide to chamber the round in the breach.

  • Point the Glock downrange at the target. Look through the rear sight with both eyes. Make the white dot on the front sight line up in the center of the rear sight. The white dot on the front sight should fill the space on the rear sight.

  • Fire one shot at the target downrange. Locate the area on the target that you just shot. Place the target downrange and repeat these steps until you hit the same spot on the target consecutively.

Tips & Warnings

  • The more you shoot your Glock the better your aim will get. Glock recommends that you fire 500 rounds to properly break the Glock in. After 500 rounds you will be familiar with your Glock and have an accurate aim using the sights.
  • Always wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes.
