    Night Sights

    Does anybody know if any company out there makes a front pinned night sight? I'm want to replace the on on my Kahr CW9. If not has anybody had any experience with "Nitesiters"? What other options are out there besides glow paint?
    Thanks in advance!

    I just saw on the duracoat website they make a duraglo nitesite paint,It says it glows brighter and longer than any nite sights available,It can be found at the Lauer custom web page under the duracoat heading heading 1/2 ounce 1s $14.90 plus/S&H

    No joy on tritium sights for this weapon. Nightsiter is worth trying at the price. Just remember to activate them before holstering. May need refreshing if your wearing for a long time.

    I bought some, but do not currently use them. I have CT Lasergrips and an Insight Procyon weapon light.

    I am pretty sure that a tritium vial can be fit into any sight fat enough to take the hole.

    Wasn't a member here selling suitable tritium vials not long ago?

    I bought the duraglo paint and if you charge it with a bright light it glows very bright and during the night if you wakeup you can see the sight fairly well,if you come in from a lit room and look at the sights after they been sitting for awhile your eyes need to acclimate to pick them up.Overall they are not as good as my nightsites on my sigpro.The nitesiters may be better but unless compared side by side it's hard to say

    How long does the nitesiter last. How many years is the flourescent paint on them supposed to last?

    Call trijicon direct. Ithink the can install or have installed the vials into any metal sign that is long/wide enough to accomodate the vial.
