Here's another nifty little inexpensive accessory item that looks good and helps at the range. Yes, the LCP is a point and shooter not designed to shoot the eyelashes off a flea at 25 yards but....I find the Nitesiters a plus. And if you apply a tiny drop of Superglue with a toothpick to one edge of the dot, they will not come off despite repeated exposure to solvent, oil and grease.

Yes they will - mine have been through the ringer and are still on. The secret is a toothpick drop of Superglue on the side of the dot. Let it seep underneath and you are good to go.

I put nitesiters on mine as shown, but after practicing with it in low light conditions, I removed the rear sight dot because I found that it was too easy to acquire it instead of the front sight, & i want to be sure I get my front sight on target. For me at least, two are OK for the range, but for real life, I'll go with just the front - which for, BTW, this works great!

I would highly recommend the large dot with the strip from nitesiters. Here is my setup and it has really helped me at the range.

I got my Nitesiters in the mail friday and put them on today. Not something for someone whos hands shake. LOL. I put one on front and one on back. Not sure if I like it or not. I did put super glue on like was said by others. Kind of got carried away with the super glue. Only time will tell if it helps or that I like it. I think I am just going to get the laser site and leave it at that.

Thanks Kraigster, it seemes like a much better idea than the Whiteout I applied at first,then took off just as fast. I ordered mine yesterday, my first day at the fourm. Yea, I like this place! ;D

Hi All:

Got Nitesiters for my Rock Island Compact and Tactical; they are great!

If you install them per the instructions and use the heat source (hairdrier or heat gun), they will not move.

I'm ordering some more for my S&W wheel guns.

Regards

Glad to see everyone like them. I will have to order some when I get some money.

I applied them to my Kahr CW9 and they look really sweet. I also got the UV Flashlight, mainly because I can't resist a new flashlight but also because it can charge the dots without messing with night vision. As soon as I get my LCP back from Ruger for the triger problem I will apply them and report how the look there.
- Ruger is really great with responding to my email, usually in an hour or two. My LCP repair is being delayed, this is what I received to my latest request for info:
Response:
We have had a slight delay in our repairs because of a lack of vendor parts needed to repair your pistol. We are hoping to receive these parts and have your pistol back to you as quick as possible. Sorry for the delay, it was unforeseen.


At least this allows me to stock up on ammo ;)

If it'll stay stuck I recommend this product to all. Easy to apply - everything included. Makes the front sight usable, even in the dark. Very clear and bright in normal light. Did not put on rear. (no raves about my photgraphy - I took this shot about 30 times and got one I could use - persistence trumps talent every time)

Mine has stayed on for three months so far.

Even photographers with talent take hundreds of pictures and use just one. Yours was great.
