The sights arrived today, and I am a bit miffed. I called the vendor and specifically asked if the front sight could be installed simply by tapping out the pins, inserting the new sight, and tapping the pins back though the sight. He told me that was the case; however, there are no holes in the sight base, and the installation calls for drilling holes in the base. I don't have the equipment to do this correctly; so, now I will have to pay a gunsmith to do it.

3/16" drill bit... Drill part way through from on side, then drill through from the other side... And do that for each hole... carefuly!

I have heard that nite sights don't last much more than 3 to 5 years.

They should last much longer than that. I have some much older than that still working.

My problem for installing the sights was solved by my wife. She moved them and can't remember what she did with them. I'm scared she threw them away.
