Bought a set of Nitesiters along with the UV pen light and installed them on my pistol. Gave them a shot with the UV, they glowed brightly for a couple of minutes and when I went back after about a half hour, and it was like I was looking at the regular white dot sights, no glow at all. I followed the directions to the letter. Are these just a lot of hype?

I bought the same set up as you, Don. If you charge the dots for a few minutes they will glow brightly for a while. They don't hold a bright glow for very long though. But if your eyes are adjusted to the dark, you will still be able to see the dim glow for well over 1/2 hour.

I try to keep the pen light near the gun at night. Hoping that if the gun is needed I will have a few seconds to give the sights a shot of UV before I need them. If I don't have time for that, chances are the BG will be too close to use the sights anyway.

Heya guys...

Nitesiters should glow for 8 to 10 hours. The bright initial glow you guys are getting is whats' expected, but you should be able to see them have some illumination for a whole lot longer. There are a couple factors that play into whether or not their easily viewable or not. How well your eyes are adjusted to the dark and how much ambient lighting is around are the two big ones. The test I use for mine are that I put them under my bedside table lamp for 5 to 10 minutes before I go to bed. I usually get to bed around 10 during the week. I can still see them easily with my night acclimated eyes at 5:30am when I wake up.

Please do feel free to call with any questions or comments. I don't like it when people are unsatisfied with my product and like to make things right by them. Try doing that litmus test and let me know what you find out. Maybe you did just get a bad set. (hope not, but i'll make it right if you did).

THANKS!

I think we get a little anctious sp with the UV light and not give them enough time I found if I sat the pen down or the gun under a bright light I got better results. do they replace expensive night sites no, but I don't expect them to for the price. they do help in getting used to the Heinie sites.
if its cloudy or your at an indoor range. I stand behind them for my PT1911 and Daves company he fills a gap that needed filling and my hat goes off to him. Thanks

Sunlight is by far the best charging mechanism for NiteSiters.
So if you live in the Pacific Northwest, use a traditional incandescent bulb. :D

I gotta say ... very nice video! I agree with you though, the video doesn't do the sites justice. They are surprisingly bright in the 'stage 1'.

I may be ordering some of these pretty soon, the sites on my Keltec PF9 look like they are molded into the slide.....in other words, I don't think the front sight comes off. :-\ Well, nitesiters is sure a great alternative to that !!

I bought a pack of Nitesiters.

If you are able to leave your pistol in the sun all day or under a lamp all the time, then they will glow when the lights are out (for a short period of time).

If you go to bed at 11:00 and wake up at 4:00AM don't expect them to glow, as they will not.

Save your money, they just aren't worth it.

I'm not real sure about the PF9, but I know I could send the P11 in for tritium installation, but it wasn't cheap. IIRC 70 bucks or something like that and I think it's just one tritium insert in the front site.

I've been tossing around what to do with it. The night sighter are an effective and affordable answer. I like the Arma Laser concept, but I don't know about electronics adding weight to a carry pistol. Sure sounds like a fantastic system, though.
