They may be hard to come by but you may be able to pick up an LCP custom with sights for cheaper than the mod. Denny

    Thanks for the reply Denny, that appears to be a well executed modification, and I would probably try it if I had a Custom. What I was hoping for was a reply from some of the folks that actually had the sight upgrade done from Innovative Arms to get their imput now that they have had some time with them. I have to say I am intrigued by those fiber optic sights (I’m looking at a pair for my LC9). How are they working for you?

    I had the Innovative Arms (IA) sight upgrade to my P3aT about 2 years ago. After about 200-300 hundred rounds, the front sight came loose and I sent it to IA to be fixed. Once returned and at the range, the front sight tritium seal blew out during the first magazine. Sent it back to IA and they replaced the front sight. I put the slide in my safe and picked-up a chrome slide to replace it. Your mileage may be different.

    After a rigorous practice/training session with my Custom, the fiber optic insert fell out of my front sight. The way most fiber optics are secured is by melting the end and forming a little ball on each end. Next time I will just use a little easy to remove glue along with melting the ends. Den

    Well that sucks! I was thinking about having my LCP ll, and the KT P-32 both done. Now I’m not sure.

    They make the rear sight, but contract for the tritium front sights. So, they have no quality control over the front sight. Even though I had some issues, I'm sure many have had no problems and IA backed their work and took care of me both times.

    True, and they do get a lot of good reviews online. I REALLY want a night sight on my ll. Maybe the right thing to do, is pick up another ll dedicated for carry duty and send that slide and barrel off. Yeah, that’s the ticket! Another ll.

    ....so I picked up another LCPll, and it came with a laser. I liked it so much I ordered a second laser for the original LCPll and called it a day.

    Did you ever have your sights upgraded?
