Default Night Sights?

I want to replace burned out bulbs in some Novak sights mounted on a gun. Has anyone dealt with this by either sending them to Novak or a different, third party?

Not a Novak but I had Wilson Combat Sights on my WC that finally went dim. Called them, I ship to them and they replace and shipped back free. They were still under the 10 year warranty.
Just depends on MFG policy.

Bump for more info?


I contacted Novak, who sent me to Smith and Wesson, who still haven't responded to my emails. If they don't want my business, that's cool, I'll give it to someone who does. (Who someone here can hopefully make a plug for! )

If it's a S&W, it may be covered in the lifetime warranty, so you may just submit a warranty claim and send it to them.

I left a voicemail and they never got back to me. You're right about the price, though. Shame to pay that much when I paid not much more than that for the gun and it's a beater.


I guess I'll call them again. Thanks!
