What is the "accurate" way to line up the Glock factory sights? If you have a camera handy please upload a pic.

Tilt gun 90 degrees. Look at homie. Fire.

You have to eyeball it. Shoot it. Adjust as necessary.

Or follow the advice above. ;)

I believe there is a Glock Sight Alignment tool

Or follow the advice above. ;)Specifically, do you line it up by leveling the height of the real and front sight?

I believe there is a Glock Sight Alignment toolI meant lining it up with my eyes, not adjusting it.

Place the front sight in the rear sight notch, top of front sight level with rear sight, equal amount of light showing on both sides of front sight. The white "U" and dot are okay for fast sight pickup, but not for best accuracy.

Hold over is based on you. There is no set rule, it just depends on where your gun lands it's rounds. However generally, yeah, you don't want to completely cover your target with the front sight post. Why? Because if you do that you can't see your target anymore. :)

If in doubt, try shooting it from a rest or sandbags to get use to where it hits. Best of luck...enjoy shooting your Glock!!!

while there are people who like to shoot that way, bisecting the target with the top of your front blade gives you the most repeatable accurate shot placement

Why, particularly? ElSquid's image from pistol-training shows the three common stages of locating one's front sight in relation to the target.

Partly the one you pick depends on exactly how your gun shoots on its own (on a rest or on a sandbag), partly how that gun and you shoot together (eyes and hand alignment), and partly on the range to the target (the ballistics of the pistol and ammunition used).
