night sights for 1st generation cpx-1?

Postby flsportsman21 » Thu Jan 26, 2012 6:36 pm

I seen an older post where someone asked about night sights and I was. Wondering if anyone had discovered a set? I do a lot of late night hog hunting and the factory sights are not visible. Has anyone found some or even custom made a set? If not I may try my luck custom making a set from a similar set I found in a cabelas shooting magazine. Thanks guys and I hope to hear back from you guys.

So guys I found a cheap substitute for truglo sights for our guns, searched night sights on Google for handguns and this is what I found, no tools needed if I can find these at a local store I will buy and test them. They have great reviews and some people say the glow for 18 hours in pure darkness.

Please update once you get them...
I had a dot fall off my rear site and I'd just as soon go this route as nail polish or bugging SCCY for a new one...

Will do! May not be for a week or two before I get the extra money. My fiance had a baby 2 months ago.

First, welcome to the forum...
Not too unusual to loose a dot, but never heard of three missing..
Did you get a gen 1 or 2? A gen 1 has horizontal lines running across the sides of the handle... A hint at your S/N would help... (Xx23xxx)..

Gen 1 on the bottom left, Gen 2 on the top right (CPX-2 shown, but same as CPX-1, just no safety).. Color does not matter..

I stand behind the glow bright Phosphurus sight paint on eBay. For 10 bucks, gives u enough to do about 10 firearms and it white when dry, so also fixes the missing sights that pop out. And glows for hours when hit with flashlight for second or 2.
I can email pics of how bright they are if anyone is interested [email protected]
