Thumbs up Night sights...

I put a Meprolight front site on the G 30. Low light at the range makes a good sight picture for my old eyes impossible. This looks like it'll help a lot. I tried it in a closet and it was good. They're tritium so need no other light to work. More after a range trip.

I like the Meprolight sights and recommend them for old worn out eyes! I'm not quite to the place where I need them, but I don't think it's far off!..................Dick

I may be looking into them soon. Although the white dot is working for now.

It really helped me see at the range. I had no problem seeing the target, hitting it was another story. I have no excuse now.

I think I know your problem Vet! You "grunts" liked to "spray" rather than "shoot" in the Nam. Us AF dudes were only given minimum ammo for defense so had to make every one count! I read somewhere that we expended 110,000 rounds for every "one" enemy KIA in the Nam/Laos/Cambodia. Man, that is incredible when you think about it!........................Dick

That sounds about my round count for a kill bird hunting.
