Ok, I searched and didn't come up with anything before I posted this so here goes. Has anyone seen these? Are there the problems of the fiber optic shooting loose as with other fiber optic sights (Dawson)? Also, if these aren't good, could someone recommend a good tritium alternative with good daytime visibility. The gun is a Glock 19 that I carry daily in a Milt Sparks SSII. I've currently got some Ameriglo's on it, but am extremely dissapointed as the front sight has already begun to get dim.

All help appreciated

Doc

I have them on two Glocks and a XD9 and like them very much. They are very visable day or night. I haven't had problems shooting the fiber optic loose yet. Keep solvents off of them, and they should be ok.

Keep solvents off why? Will it melt the fiber optic plastic? Would CLP be safe. How do you properly clean your sights?

Some will. I know of one case where an owner melted his sights with an aggressive solvent. I wouldn't use anything except water-based cleaners on them (Slip 2000 gun degreaser, Mpro7, Hoppe's Elite, Simple Green, etc).
