Well guys I've got the CZ-75BD now set up with sights & a grip that makes the gun a joy to shoot. My question is simple? (The good questions usually are!) LOL Anyway all is good but in the future where do I find the fiber optic rods? I tried looking online and I think I'm not using the right words in the search bar to find them. I have green on the front sight but would like to try other colors to find the one best suited for my eyes. Any help would be great.
Dawson Precision has all kinds of cool ways of getting your money.
Well they included instructions on how to replace the fiber optic, I just want to get the fiber optic rods. Can't be that hard to get...Or are they?
I went to the link Bugboy provided and they have the fiber optic rods I was looking for. Thanks again!
Brownells has them in different diameters and colors. For all sorts of parts Brownells is your friend.
I'll check Brownells out thanks Denclaste. I found out their .01 mm Fiber optic rods. Looks like they are available in two colors red or green. I am using green right now any advantage in one color over the other?
If you are not color blind, the green seem to work a lot better for me outside. Red seem to work better indoors where the light is dimmer. I've not tried the yellow ones yet so have no opinion of them. When you install them try to make a little "bulb" on the end facing you. And yes you can ,to some extent, vary the size of the dot by how much you press on it when its hot. Fun stuff to ply with when you are completely bored during our 9 mos of winter.
I think I might try the red. I have the green one in now but with things starting to green up everywhere, red may be my best option.
Personally, I like yellow in the rear sights, green in the front. Green means "GO".
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Not trying to hijack a thread, but I really think night sights are the way to go. If you ever lost a fiber optic "rod", or tried them at night, you would know why.
Beans, Bullets, and Bandages. The only thing better than being ready is not having to use it!
