Why are these so cheap?

    Plastic? Also, the glow in the dark needs to be charged, like those toys you had as a kid. They say it lasts 3 hours but its more like ten minutes unless your in almost total darkness.

    I'd pass on those and stick with Trijicon or Glock's night sites.

    The LWD description says, "Front and rear machined from bar stock steel."

    I have read posts saying the phosphorescence is disappointing, but this might be an alternative to plain Glock steel sights.

    I think on a AA conversion kit these will work nicely. There cheap because there not true night sights. There the cheap glow in the dark stuff like on toys or remotes. At the range thought I could see these being a lot easier to acquire then plan old black on black sights.

    I use them on several of my Glocks and am completely satisfied. They glow well from ambient light, and when flashed with my Surefire for about 3 seconds they really light up. Just perfect for indoor range shooting and home defense.

    And they are steel, not plastic.

    The same set on Ameriglo's sight is $40 so I'd say $20 is a good deal. Honestly how can you lose, a set of steel sights for only $20? If you don't like them I'd bet you would not have a problem selling them here on GT.
