Will gun cleaning solvents harm the sights?
Although our new lite pipes are impervious to solvents we do not recommend cleaning the sight itself or the lite pipe with solvent. If you do get some solvent on the lite pipe there is nothing to worry about just go ahead and wipe it off. You can clean your lite pipe with a soft tissue or Q-tip and a dab of alcohol if needed.

What is the difference of the newly designed pistol sights over the old style?
We have changed quite a bit on the newly designed pistol sights. The first thing we did is put a square serrated sloped face to the sight. The slope and serrations we added will help eliminate glare. The squared off face will give you faster target acquisition as it lines up with the rear much faster. We also recessed the lite pipe to help eliminate what we call the halo effect this will give you a very sharp/crisp sight picture.
