I have a feeling A LOT of people haven't shot 3-gun in a long time thanks to ammo retardedness.

Down here, it's grown leaps and bounds in the last 24 months, surprisingly.

Good sights for a carry/house gun?

Might as well spend a little more and get Tritium night sights. Buy once. Cry once.

Just looked at it again. I thought they were the fiber optic only.

Oops

I think night sights are overrated, I prefer a F/O front, black rear, and a weapon mounted light.

I over shot that guess by double. Some one got a heck of a deal over going rate.

If he will take what that .44 went for on the auction site I may be a lot more interested. What year is it, 1894, c , or css?

really looking and holding out for a JM stamped without a safety.

The biggest problem we have is when someone installs their own without proper tools. There are two sets at work with the tubes popped from being hammered in. This is why we install them free with our sight press.
I run them on my Glocks and had good luck . The nice thing is when the tritium goes dead you can move them to a range gun and keep using them. Sights are not a one size fits all item.

I doubt he will go that low and looking at the pictures our consignment is in much better shape. If I have time I will snap some pictures and find out more on the price.

So what happens if the pistol gets banged around? The sight gets all fuckered up?

Have you ever removed factory XD sights ? They are impossible to move without the tool. A customer used his air powered brad nailer to remove the old ones. He was one of the guys that had trouble with the front sight not working.

Edit to add We've had no problems with the bolt in set screw style just dovetail type.

I meant the tubes on those sights popping out and getting messed up from getting banged on.
