nope. tritium sounds like what your talking about, but you don't need light to activate it. Its a radioactive gas that has a half life of about 12 years. Glows well for 12, then half as bright, and so on.
I am familiar with tritium as my Beretta 92 has these. This is what I'm talking about, "The high definition 3-dot sight system is coated in Superluminova®, a special photosensitive material. Short exposure to any kind of light, is enough to ensure long lasting luminescence of up to 30 minutes. Rear and front sights can be removed for replacement with other types of sights."
My bad, it was 30 min instead of an hour. At least one new handgun on the market is installing these standard. It was my thinking that the M&P came with these.
Thanks raz-0, we have the sight blanks ready and will finish to whatever the customer needs. This allows us to provide semi-custom front sights at a reasonable cost. Let me know if you guys have any questions.
Hey Ricky, the fiber optic sight is $35 in whatever width and height you want. The standard sight (no fiber optic) is 27.50 and both include front serrations if you want them. I also have the blanks for $15 if you want to whittle on it yourself. FYI, our fiber optic sights are the "non-gamer" sights....
