Just got my PSA and noticed the front sight pin is very difficult to see especially in low light. I am looking for some sort of fiber or other options to make it more visible. What is out there for manual sights that will be a little easier to see?
I have been looking at a Sightlink front fiber:
AR-15 SIGHTLINK™ FRONT SIGHT - Brownells
That seems to be the best option that I have found so far.
I'd go with a night sight over a fiber optic if you are planning on using if for defensive use.
A fiber optic requires some light in order to work. A Tritium sight does not.

There are so many products out there as Google provides but doesn't provide personal experience and recommendations. Just looking for a front site that somebody has and would recommend, or a site someone purchased and would not recommend. I like to do a little research before buying and this is the place to do it.
Thanks luvmy40 for some other options. I like that parts4AR15 website. And I hadn't thought about night sites having that advantage over the fiber.
I've seen glow in the dark paint you can dab on the front sight. Although it's not tridium, so it doesn't naturally glow. It needs a source of light to be activated.
