I heard they are not.

It is a pity that HK does not provide it as a standard feature as Sig does.

Does any P30 come with night sight installed from factory?

I just saw a P30 V2 with factory night sights at my LGS tonight that almost came home with me. Gotta love that LEM trigger.

not sure if they ever provide them standard from the factory, but they do provide photolumenescent sights standard, which are certainly an upgrade to most standard sights provided by most manufacturers

HK's can be special ordered from the factory with nights, usually as apart of a LE package. The nights are put on by HK USA, not by the factory though.

As a $800 to $900 gun, I think it should better come with a night sight as standard feature, just as Sig P226.

For how long time could photolumenescent sights glow continuously in the dark?

Just the same as any divers watch will. It has the same material (superluminova) as is used in fine Swiss watches for the hands and indices. Hit them for a few seconds with a flashlight, and they will out shine any night sights on the market

Do you like the same type of sights I do? I doubt it. Why add something to a gun that is not universally accepted? It will just raise the price. Stop thinking of guns as fast food. Buying a gun for extra features is stupid. What happens when they add night sights, charge you the extra, then you hate them and still have to buy replacements.

If you're just here to complain about the price of Hk's go troll somewhere else.

Hk's a value to me and to most of the people here.

I wouldn't want 3 dot sights from the factory. Once you try the Heine Straight 8s , you won't go back to 3 dot sights EVER. So much faster & accurate. I'm starting to think XS big dots may be second best. Dot over post is uber fast!

I can't stand lollipop sights. I've had two Sigs with them and I swapped them out for tritium 3-dots.

My preference in a combat sight system is 3 dot as I have shot that system for many years. Never liked the dot over post sights. As to the factory glow sights that come standard on the P30, they are now my favorite sights. They provide a great day sight picture and my eyes can pick them up in any lighting conditions. Quick hit with a flashlight and they glow better than any tritium. A plus is these sights will display that glow for 30 years or more. Bill

+1. For reference I have a Tag Heuer watch that is over 20 years old that to this day will outshine a brand new set of night sights. That to me is the advantage of the stock set vs NS. They don't have an expiration date, you dont have to be worried how long they were on the shelf etc.
