Very nice work. I do like the contrasting barrel. Convert it to a G and give it a WC trigger job and it'll be near perfecto. If you want honest-to-goodness night sights, Trijicon should be able to retube that front and sell you a new rear.

It's only money... Wink

For only $20 a lamp, Trijicon will relamp the rear and front sight, and ship it back to you. For a grand total of $60 plus shipping the slide to them, it's a great deal. I've had three pistols done like that.

Apparently, under some "new" law/regulation, they cannot/will not re-lamp fixed sights as on the Beretta 92FS. They say they are looking for alternatives, but nothing available at this time.

From Trijicon's website:

Tritium is a radioactive isotope that is regulated by the U.S. NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission). In accordance with Trijicon’s radiation safety program and ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) contamination / exposure principles, we will not perform tritium source installation into firearms or pistol slides with integral fixed sights. This is intended to protect our customers from the potential situation in which a source could become broken and not be repairable / returnable. We are actively looking into alternative solutions for this need.

If you have a firearm with a non-removable sight that requires repair, or have other questions, please contact Trijicon’s Technical Support with any questions by calling toll free at 1-800-338-0563, or 1-248-960-7700.


They re-lamped the night sights on my 92FS two months ago. They will not install sights on a pistol that is not already drilled out for the front tritium vial, but they will replace the vials on a pistol that has old night sights that are not completely dead.

Lord Vaalic, what grips are those on the 92? They look really sharp(in a good way).

I think I mentioned earlier in this thread that my night sights were completely dead.

Thanks.

I'm not sure that's who I was talking to; the sights at tooltech look taller, and the outfit I talked to spoke about drilling out the existing site to put tritium there, or re-lamp the front sight.

Sorry about that, please excuse my overlooking that one.
