Night sights!

Recommended Posts

I see Ballistic Reload has them for cheap and the stock ones on my gun are painted and have to be charged with a flash light. Are the Meprolights Tritiums good? I'm gonna guess yes since my 1911's came with them, but I could be wrong. Thoughts? If its good to go through that site I will order them now or if there are any other sites that have a better price or product please post it.

Meprolite is the only game in town for tritium sights for the M4/M1014.

Ok, good to know and thanks for the PM. Will the nut come with it or would I have to buy that separately? Also I can't seem to order them on Ballistics site. Maybe its a call in only site.

Order a couple. They are very "soft" metal.

 

While you are at it, these are often torn/nicked if you are careless. I remember having to send "Duggan" one to replace his when he nicked it cleaning the weapon after something like 10,000 rounds of sludge build-up and Brownells was out of stock at the time.

Good to know and I'm taking your word for it and I'll order these things. Where is the cheapest place to order the night sights? The site I mentioned doesn't seem like I can place an order on there. Also, when I was at my local gun store they had the night sights there for $139! I will not pay that!!!

It varies by who has them in stock. Just google around until you find someone who has them in stock at what seems to be the best price.

You'll need to source a 5.5mm box wrench also. Ignition kits often have them. The acorn nut is soft and the wrench barely fits as is.

 

The Meprolight sights are nice though. The rear lamps are very small for a reason. Since your eyes are so close to the rear aperture, they are pin prick size to give you a visual reference to where the rear ghost ring is for head alignment.
