Has anyone installed the green fiber optic filament in their front sight. How did it go and is the green more visible to you?

Every ones eyes are different, some people see reds better than greens and vice versa. Try both and see which one you seem to pick up better. To me I seem to pick up the red better since around me is so much green all around me. The red seems to just stick out. You should have enough extra filament to try both out a couple times.

I finally changed mine yesterday. It was kind of hard to get the red one out. I ended up cutting the melted ball at the front end and driving it back out with a small punch. The new one slid right in. The green is much brighter to my eyes.

I noticed the front Firesight on my 10/22 Takedown is the same diameter.(.060) I'm going to change that one to green also. It should show up good through the peep.

Why a fiber optic front? This is a carry gun for what I can see. Most armed conflicts occour in low light where fiber optics are not the best. Why not a Trijicon night sight? Truglo makes a fiber opric site with a tritium vial behind it. Just seems strange to me.

That's what it comes with. It has a red fiber optic sight from the factory with a couple pieces of filament so you can change it. The green shows up better for me.
I agree it's not the best in low light.
