Default XS sights but press in rear sight

If there was a rear sight like the XS 24/7 sight but it pressed in rather then set screw/loctite in with no tritium just a solid white line, for glocks, would anyone be interested in purchasing one if the price was right? Does such a sight already exsist?

Yep that exact rear sight but press in not set screw. If it exists I'd like to check it out. If not I might consider making them. That was my main let down when I tried those sights. Set screws and the sights main strength comes from loctite. It might be super tough but I don't love it.

I think it would still have to be tapped into place. The set screws and Loctite are just for extra security, but I havenít installed any on a Glock.

The XS rear sight usually slides in freely. They recommend you file it if it dosent. Most of the sights strength comes from loctite in the cracks. I'd prefer a sight like the glock factory night sights where a rear sight tool is required. But I like the shape of the XS sight.

I see. For m1911-series pistols, they require extensive filing to fit.

Yea they slide in easily, a little to easily, went to the range once with just the set screws just tp see where I was hitting. after about 90 rounds the rear sights came off becuase I hadnt put on the red loctite and left the screw driver at home....soooo we taped the rear sights to the frame haha.
