are there super luminova sites for the USP similar to the ones on the new HK45 and P30?

maybe I have the wrong name? The new sights that come on the new P30, the ones that charge with light rather than glowing all the time. Is that style, a ?superluminova? sight, are they available for the USP?

softmentor, did you happen to order a set of Nitesiters? I was curious as to how you like them if you did get a set. I'm still not sure if I want to shell out for tritium sites yet, so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I bought a some and really like them. They are absolutely nothing more than little glow in the dark stickers that fit on your sights, but they work really well. You could probably do it yourself if you had some glow in the dark sticker stock, but what the heck. If I remember correctly you get 8 of the little stickers for the $10.

Yep, got them and love them. I know I'm being silly about the radiation from tritium sites but I don't want them around. These have been a nice upgrade. I also bought their little UV light for ten bucks. That was probably a waste of money but the material to add to the sites, the luminescent stuff, I like them. For $9.95, great deal.
I'll update you more as I use them on duty.

Eh, my USP-9 doesn't have night-sights and this may be a good addition for the time being. Thanks for the link and softmentor, do let us know how they last and if they adhere properly to the stock-sights without coming off.

(Looking at these more, I would only put one on the front-sight - otherwise the rear dots with gather more light than the front sight in a duty/tactical-holster (under natural lighting conditions), potentially making the rear sights the brightest of the two (front/rear). I'd want my front sight to be dominant in brightness from immediate presentation of the firearm (without charging the sights)).

Any feedback on these yet?
I put the nitesiters on my p2ksk, and they have yet to come off. I am pretty rough on that pistol, sometimes I carry in my pocket (with keys), in breafcase, between my belt and waistband, under the car seat, and they have held on really well.

Nearly 4 months of everyday IWB carry, they hold up just fine. I like to charge them when shooting at indoor ranges, there they realy help in the dim light.
@born2defy: I doubt any of these luminiscent sights will stay charged that long. The best in terms of brightness and light-time You get is UV light, but I still find they need to be recharged in several hours, and the night can be much longer. I don´t care, as it´s more of a fun article for me. If I were to carry on duty, I´d go with Truglos.
