    I don't personally have them, but have read some good things about them, considering the price. The search function is your friend.

    Are night sights really worth the money

    10 bucks? Almost sounds too good to be true.

    Well, they are stick-ons. In order for them to glow in the dark, you have to 'charge' them under natural or artificial light, then they will glow for a period of time. They are not self luminous like tritium. I guess it's a good option for those not wanting to spend $75 on some Meprolights or Trijicons. I have nothing good nor bad to say about these. It is what it is. I only depend on real self luminous night sights. Good option? Maybe, but I look at it as like using a paper bag for a holster.

    I just ordered my SECOND set.

    I have carried my XD9SC with nitesiters for almost a year??? And finally lost one dot.

    You get 8 dots on a package. Why 8? Who knows.

    I plan to reapply to my XD9SC, and do my Kel-Tec, and stick a few on my flashlight that sits on my nightstand...

    They work exactly as advertised. You do have to "charge them" before using them, but I'd wave a mag-light over mine for a minute before I'd go out walking around the neighborhood, and get a few hours work of glow. A UV lamp works better, as they absorb UV. They are MUCH brighter when charged that the Trijicons on my XD45. The two I have left are just as strong as they were a year ago...

    I have an un-paid testimonial on the sight. I've carried them in my waist band for hours, and left them out in my truck. The truck must reach 130 degrees in the Orlando summer, they didn't come off.

    I think it was a direct shot of Breakfree CLP that took one out... Both a testimony to CLP, and to Nitesiters!!! The immovable object met an unstoppable force, and it was a tie... One stayed on, and one fell off...

    For $10, buy-em.

    I'm with Jeff on this. I have gotten three sets. Have used them on my P-11, my Colt Officers 45, My FEg, my fathers model 34 beretta, and my friends P3AT. I Will put them on My Makarov once i get a good carry holster for it.
    The ONLY problem I have had is with the FEG front site. They just don't stay on that ONE sight. Probably one of the situations that the owner warns about.
    For $10 even if you are unhappy, you are out what? 4 coffees? They are worth it in my book

    I like them.

    I don't care about the glow in the dark. I just like that now I have a nice clear bright white dot on my front sights that I can wipe clean if they start to get a bit dirty.

    +1 on this, much cheaper than trijicons and work just as well. I can replace a whole lot of Nitesiters for the same money. I have them on my both of my XD's, my PT1911, and my Witness 9mm. Work great.

    I had got a sight pain lit from midway a while back that has some "Ghost Glow" paints in it. They work pretty much the same as the nitesiters stuff does as it needs "charges" by a light source but if properly applied it works and stays glowing for a good while. It was 22 bucks and I have enough to last for a really long time. I bought it wanting as many different colors as possible wanting to see what would work best. I hadn't even thought about the glow factor until later. I was really happy with it though.

    Here's a link if you want to check it out.

    There are pictures on the nitesiters website. Also, do a search for "nitesiters" on this forum. There was a thread where people submitted pictures of their guns with nitesiters installed.
