Fiber optics are very commonly used in bowhunting sights and durability has not proven to be an issue there. While bow sights don't have to deal with the recoil factor, I can assure you that they are as roughly treated as a firearm in the hunting fields.

Only problem I see is that eventually the fiber optic rod will break and fall out of the sight. It's easily replacable, but I hate to be looking for it in a high stress situation and not be able to find it. It's happened to me in competition, and it creates a confused hesitation that would not be a good thing in real life. (as compared to the game)
Just an opinion, and I'm no expert. Came to me the second time mine fell out :smile:

I guess if you don't change them regularly anything could happen...I change mine everytime I clean the pistol...Just maintenance, like everything else...I can barely get mine out with tiny needle-nose pliers and usually drive it out with a tiny pin...Guess all sights aren't created the same :wink:

The fibre from Brazos is incredibly bright and he has the correct sizes. I'm not sure how many sizes there are, but I think he sells at least two....060 and .090? Not sure on that...Check with him at:

They are incredibly bright...

I don't have a fiberoptic on my carry gun, yet. However, I have had ProSights, which sports a fiber optic front sight, (see below) on my STI 9x19 and on a Glock 34 for 2-3 years.

In combination, I have worn those 2 guns in Kydex belt holsters for 100's of hours. I have probably made a total of 15,000-20,000 presentations with them.

Below is a link for pictures of the sights.
