HK P30 Sight Question Login/Join 
Member
posted
Saw a NIB P30SK at the LGS yesterday with 3 dot sights that were slightly yellow in color and I was told by the help that they were not night sights but some sort of hi-viz sight. I think they would be great in anything but absolute darkness. Anyone know what these sights are called in case I want to order a set from HK?

Thanks,

Jerry

Stock/Base sights on P30s, VPs are luminescent. You can shine a light on them and they will glow in the dark for about 30 minutes.

Great visibility in daylight.

Putting night sights on my P30 was about the first thing I did with it.
The problem with luminescent sights is that the sights are activated by light. So when the gun is holstered the rear sight gets all the light while the front gets none. When you unholster the gun in low light conditions, the rear sights are fairly bright, & you can hardly see the front. Another solution would be to black out the rear sight dots with a Sharpie, so all you see is the front sight.
