I picked up a pair of these for my Ed Brown Kobra Carry since the ones on it are 15 years old and do not work. Has anyone else used these as a replacement?

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.

Put them on my Walther PPQ, big improvement. Fast acquisition. Gonna compare acquisition time with one of my red dots. I’m thinking it will be close.

With the larger colored insert I think they're better than ever.
Good day light and dark visibility.
