    I posted an ad in WTB but I thought I might get more response here.

    I'm looking for a rear sight with the tritium inserts to replace the plain serrated sight on this G48. I'm having a difficult time finding exactly what I need to match the front sight which is an Ameriglo Bold.???

    As in a match in general.

    I've never been a sight swapper so I'm lost with all of the options available ( or not ).

    I'm having no luck finding a rear Ameriglo Bold sight for a G/43/43X/48 online.

    The front sight has Ameriglo H3 on the side. I don't know the height. One of the previous owners called them Ameriglo Bolds.

    That front one may not be an Ameriglo “bold”

    Bold is a Glock exclusive name using the regular Ameriglo Pro Glow front sight. The rear is only available from Glock.

    But........ Measure the front sight and call me. It looks like you have an aftermarket Ameriglo set which should be .160”. Instead of the .200” that comes with the Bold set (and taller rear).

    45047 is the rear sight part number on the slim line guns and needs to be paired with a .200” tall front.
