    You send it back to Trijicon, or who ever made it to begin with.

    I don't think you can just buy vials to do it yourself. Tritium is a radioactive product so I'm sure there is some level of responsible certification with working with it. Wouldn't want a melt down.

    I am sure the inserts are sealed. Once the light is dead I feel like the radiation level is about non existent.

    I think I might give the glow on paint a try. Or if anyone knows of another option let me know. I replaced the dead set a while ago and thought I would renew my old ones for my new gun.

    Yoda, the tritium vials are regulated in the US quite a bit. They aren't readily available here in the US. Funny, you can buy them in all kinds of novelties in the UK but not here. That's why if you want a glow in the dark key fob that doesn't need to be exposed to light you have to go out of country to get one pre-made.

    You used to be able to get the key-chains which contained different color Tritium vials on Ebay but, I don't think they are being sold anymore.
    They would have been too large to use for sights anyway though.

    i believe that bill wilson's company, Wilson Combat, replaced the vials on my Wilson CCR using the old sight bodies, but i have no idea if they had to remove the sights from the gun to do it, or if they managed it with the sights still on the gun. i'm pretty sure the only do-it-yourself process is to buy a new set of sights, vials and bodies together.

    Trijicon has you ship your slide to them, and they replace the tritium inserts. They recently quoted me somewhere just under $60 bucks.

    I emailed trijicon and they will do it for $18 per insert. $54 for front and rear.

    I am going to give the Glow -On paint a try on my old sights because I can buy a new set for not much more than trijicon quoted.
