    Default Best Suarez option for Gen 5 17

    As the title infers, I'm looking for the best option for a Gen 5 G17.

    I know sight height is a factor in the Gen5 pistols, and I usually prefer 147 grainers. That equates to a very high strike with the older, lower front sights.

    Two dot is about my best option for irons, due to astigmatism.

    Looking for just sights?

    Why would the Gen 5 be any different than the Gen 4?

    Gen 5 supposedly has a different lockup and therefore dwell time. causing the strike to be higher.

    I found this out on an earlier Gen 5 G19, using Mepro's.

    I am not going to agree

    We have several Gen 5s in house for T&E and the sights are exactly the same height as Gen 3 and gen 4. If you had an issue with mepro sights...maybe it was the mepro sights.
