They did show up today (Thursday) so we are good ! They toss in a little swag so that's cool ! I should get them installed before the weekend so will be nice to see how POI is compared to my Dawsons that are on my 07. When I get it all done I'll get some pic's and post up a range report !

So, to you guys who installed them-- how well do they work in dim light?

I'm starting to lean on my P-09 in .40 as my Home Defense weapon (I live in an apartment building, and have judged my AR and my Mossberg 835 as too much risk of collateral damage), and I want a good set of night sights that perform well in dim-to-dark lighting conditions.

The review videos I've seen so far are hit-and-miss-- some reviewers say they work very well, others say they are not bright enough. I'd be interested to hear what you guys have to say.

I have not installed them yet. I got my front sight off my 07 yesterday and will push out the rear on Saturday sometime and install the NF sights. If all goes well I will get to the range Sunday AM. Its a private range and we have a great indoor setup so I can turn lights off/on as I desire so I should get a good feel for them. I'll bring multiple types of bullet weights and ammo types and figure out POA/POI with each and pick the best one for this setup ! I'll try my best for Sunday but if I can't make it I'll report back as soon as I can.  :)

Purchased a set for my P07. I emailed them after ordering to see what the lead time was. With the black Friday and cyber Monday deal they were running a little behind. I received my sights about a week after order, which to me is a very reasonable time especially with the sudden influx of orders. When comparing to my set of trijicon HDs, they look almost identical in both night and day visibility. I still need to install the rear sight but when I do I'll get a few pictures comparing the night sight capabilities (pix added). The trijicon HD are on the left, NF on the right, I had to take the front sight off center to keep from getting a glare but I think you guys get the idea. Overall, I have been very impressed with the quality and customer service.

Good post ! I only have the front installed at the moment just didn't get around to installing the rear. I guess I just got nervous & a tad impatient but they really showed up in a decent amount of time. I ended up getting 20% off with a coupon code so it was a decent deal, I was NOT impressed with the $10 dollar shipping but that's the way it goes I guess, LOL Overall my thoughts on "Night" Sights are so-so,,,tritium will NEVER replace a good flashlight but they do have their pluses ! I liked the construction and the design of the rear which really lends itself to racking the slide on your belt/boot/door jam etc! A good quality set of sights that seem like they will hold up well ! I will get them installed completely very soon and head to the range & will post my thoughts and results.

I've ordered 3 sets so far.  One for a P10C, the second for a P07 and the third for a P10S (when it finally is available).  I've been impressed from the beginning with these.  They are at least as bright as any other night sights I have and may be a tad brighter.  Other night sights I've used are Trijicon HDs, Ameriglo Spartan Operators and the basic Trijicon on my other CZs.  I've been very happy with these and they compare well to the others.  The bright front ring is easy for 55 year old eyes to pick up quickly and they hit POA.

Yes, very good front sight ! I purchased the orange and WOW it is very nice/bright! I did get the rear installed tonight and it went well with 0 fitting or sanding. I was just in my gun room and the front stood out very nicely, I will be looking forward to getting outside with the 07 along with shooting in low light, it should be a nice improvement.

I know I asked a question about the brightness of the Tritium, but, in retrospect, I should have solicited more information on the visibility of the front sight in low light conditions, as I live in an apartment complex across from a business plaza with bright street lights, so LOW light visibility is actually more relevant to my needs than DARK visibility, now that I think about it.

I've been considering getting a set with the Yellow ring front. I'm not that old, but my eyes are horrendous.

I'll try and get u a pick in low light soon.

Edi: pic 1 is with very low light. Basically a light was on and I walked around a wall to the other side. Pic 2 is a little bit more where the light was behind me when I took the pic.

Same here ... I actually ended up switching back to a white front ring.

I found that while the bright colors are somewhat helpful in daylight, white is the most visible in low light. With the colored fronts I found a "gap" between where I could still pick up the sight ring in low light and where I could pick up the tritium...
