Yes, they are the original night sights and they are dim. I have painted around the vial in the front sight with white appliance paint to get me by for now. I was contemplating a full upgrade for the pistol (new sights, SRT, E2 Grips) and didn't know if I should just trade in for a similarly spec'd 229 or M-11A1. Was told since that Sig was reintroducing the 228 and 225 that the old ones were free falling in value.
I really like this 228 and use it for my EDC, just wanted to do some upgrades. At least it's nothing I have to do.
