Has anyone had an OEG apart? I'm thinking of replacing the tritium element myself with one B@rt offers at the Candlepower forums. Wonder if that's feasible.

Yes, there was a thread in the last month where someone. . . (sorry can't remember who?) had a few, so he took one apart to try and replace the tritium. From what I remember, even once it was apart no one could figure out where the tritium was, or how to replace it.

I think they used to but not anymore? (sorry don't have one, just regurgitating info I've heard here)

I sent one back to Trijicon just before they quit doing it and it came back just as dim as when I sent it to them. Didn't pay much to have it done. Tried contacting them but never got a response and gave up. They must have been using smaller elements by then which didn't have enough oomph for the older collectors. My assumption. That was many years ago, way over 5.

The new Armson hasn't updated their website since 2009 and seems unlikely to ever get in the tritium business. I'm not gonna wait for them any longer.

I'll give it a try and see how it turns out. If I can't find the element, I'll just dremel a spot and epoxy one in and give it a shot.

Armson will not replace the tritium. I called a while back and asked.

I started the thread a while back about replacing the tritium in the Singlepoints not the Armson's. Still waiting for the seller on CP to get red tritium back in stock so I can try and work on my Singlepoint.........

Does he have green? I've had a few Singlepoints, and really liked the green...

Yes. He's got a lot of colors.

Engineer5, are you sure "alot" is not a word?

I don't think you'd have to go with red. It's not one of the more energetic colors. I'm thinking high pressure green or white. It's the tritium that illuminates the crude fiber optic. Or at least I thought that's what was happening.

B@rt is good to go.

I had a high school English teacher who would toss a solid gold shit if she saw "alot" written in a paper. That and the word "nice" were her pet peeves. Of course talking too much in class was right up there too. I literally got my mouth duct taped shut one day. I miss her.

Back on topic though; yeah the tritium is what illuminates the fiber optics. I have the red myself and was thinking about doing a white capsule to get it up and running.

And dang Quiet! Where did you get so many broke-ass OEG's??
