I finally replaced the front only on my Kobra LW about six weeks back - but I opted for a gold bead this time. I'm tired of buying alleged night sights that are supposed to be good for 10+ years. The units I've had must have taken the slow train and aged on the way. at 6-8 years, I find most of the night sights I have tried, regardless of brand, are growing dim. But what you've selected will work great - and remain my pick of the litter of night sights out there.
I hope so. Mine was a work/carry gun for a police chief for 14 years and then a friend had it for a year that kept it in a safe. I don’t have safe so I plan on putting it in rotation once I get a holster for it.
I agree, great sights. I have the orange front. Only time I have a problem picking up that front sight is with a red or orange background, like my Quick Tyme laser target, which is not likely to happen in the real world.
