Hello,
I have a Kimber custom II w/fixed sight.
I'm thinking about changing it with a night sight.
What brand/kind would you recommend?
Thanks for your advise and expertise in advance!!

Send it back to Kimber for the factory nights.

Kimber Nights are great. Kimber will put them on quick and have the piece back to you in a week.

:iagree: This is pretty good advice but if you don't want to deal with shipping your gun away then I would reccomend these...

I believe Kimber uses Mepro sights.

They are all good , they use radioactive Tritium gas with half life about 12.3 years, that means after 25 years it still has 1/4 to burn!
