One thing you can be sure of when you visit The Mile High Shooting booth at Show Show is a display of the industries leading products. They represent companies such as Acuracy International, Barrett, you name it they have it. I am only now getting around to testing out one of their new products that I though was pretty awesome. I appreciate their patience in waiting for me to do this. The Henning Group has the Patent Pending Battlehook sight sets that are made for any Glock pistol. I brought home 2 sets. One I put on our competition Glock 35 and the other is a model especially for the police force that carries Glock on duty. I promised I wold take the sample to the guys I know at the Seattle Police range. I have yet to do so. My bad, but I will be down there this week. You would not think a set of sights could get so much attention but these are worth taking a second look at.

The set I put on my pistol is the Fiber Front and Black Rear Sight Set. Fiber optic sights are great for competition or tactical use. I love that the fiber optic tube is enclosed in its housing.

If in a battle and you loose use of one hand you can rack the slide by hooking the sight on to your pant leg anywhere. (As happens to me so often) It will hook on to the slightest edge of anything. For the police version I thought this was pretty cool.

There are several set options to chose from. The fiber optic like I have and the Tritium night sights to the all black front and rear. The rear sights are also serrated for better visibility out on the range. The Battlehook extends the blade over the back of the slide for a longer sight radius and a larger sight reference. “Battlehook is available in 3 different heights to fit the various Glock models and available in two different notch widths; .150″ and .180”. The .180″ width is called “Ultra Carry” and gives you a super fast sight picture for concealed carry purposes.” Prices start at $85 and go up to
