Default S&W 3rd gen factory adj. sight options

I just bought back my 4006 after selling it 14yrs ago. Took it out to the range today and decided that the factory adjustable sights just dont do it for me. Hard to see those little white dots with my old, bad eyes. Looking to put some night sights on it. They don't have to be adjustable, but would prefer it. Anyone have any suggestions. My sights look like these

I was wondering the same thing about my 5906 I had. The sights were kind of like a hybrid night sight/white dot set up but the tritium or whatever was used was completely dead. Unfortunately I didn't have it long enough to really research the matter so I can't help you much. Maybe if you send it to trijicon they can replace the lamps or drill and install new ones. You'd be able to keep those sweet sights too.

Trijicon makes a set.
Includes a new front sight and a new rear leaf. They can also be relamped too.

Thanks QXSOUP, I will check those out.
Just looked at them, but what is the difference between SA-01 and SA-02?

SA-02 is for the .45 and 10mm.

Try out those night sights first. The glare from the sapphire (or whatever) lamp cover pretty much makes the front sight disappear from my bad eyes.
