How durable are they?they look like you would have to be realy careful with them.I'm talking about the front sight only.

Too fragile for a carry piece - imho.

Never really got too much of a boost there either... except an orange dot in bright light, and a less than stellar picture as things got less than bright.

I have to disagree. We've had them for years on 2 K9s & 2 PM9s and any 2 of them are carried daily. and shot 3X per week. We found the green rods are more friendly to the eyes.

I've had them (front and rear) for years on my .50 caliber black powder rifle and have never had an issue. My hunting load is a 240 grain PA Conical over 100 grains of black powder which results in a bit of recoil.
