    GP100 22LR Front Sight Replacement

    Good evening. Wondering if anyone has successfully found a workable solution to the rather large HiVis front sight? Thank you for any suggestions apart from another HiVis type solution.

    Stick some tape or opaque paint on top of that fiber optic will help keep it from burning your retina.

    Of course that will not help the round shape.

    That front sight is replaceable. Surely someone makes one for it.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I do believe a small amount of tape might have merit for a short time fix. I needed to do that with a ACOG sight while I was deployed. Actually worked very well. Hopefully someone has found someone who makes a better front sight solution. Thanks again.
