NO. I've got a much better idea. Why don't YOU stop posting. Stop making up your own names for parts, pistols, procedures, everything.

CXM,

Now see, I was inspired by Stephen Camp's S&W-sighted Hi Power.
I saw his years ago and decided that I just had to have one of my own - in .40S&W. :) Then there's Vern's S&W sighted Hi...

FEG is a conundrum.

This is a point of view that has some merit. None of my Hi Powers' end configurations depended on what the original sights were.

Still, there will be those who want better sights right out of the...

Rob S,

The mistake/Typo was entirely mine. No way you could've known. I typed MK III instead of MK II.

There may still be a couple of ways to get a just a tritium front sight.

I don't believe that there is collector's interest in the Arcus.

The old school fancy stuff are the 2 photos I attached. I'm not sure if you can see them.
