Just wondering if anyone knows of good fiber optic or tritium  iron sights or sight post? Would prefer both rear and front but would settle on just front.

Keep in mind those front sights are going to be very fat.

I have this one.. It's not fat at all.

I do find however that adjusting it was a pain in the ass.  My 5 prong front sight tool wasn't long enough to fully depress the detent to adjust sight height.  I needed to use a small precision screwdriver to press the detent while I adjusted the sight's height.  Then once I got the height adjusted, my tool was perfect for depressing the detent enough to spin the "tritium housing" around to face the correct direction, without messing up the height.

Don't do it OP.


Mark my words, you will be disappointed if you expect to shoot well in the dark using these things.


Fiber Optic front posts have some utility for daytime shooting, making a front post a little more eye-catching.



Tritum sights are fucking useless on a long gun.
