Do people buy preowned night sights?

    I just put on new Ameriglo nights sights on my G30sf a couple months ago. I really want to put Truglo TFOs on my G30sf simply cause I feel they are better sights during the day and they really light up at night time.

    So I was wondering if people sell their preowned night sights or is there even a market for them?

    Thanks.

    If they are in good condition (unmodified) somebody will buy them.
    If you had to file them down/modify in any way to fit your gun, I wouldn't sell them if it were me.

    They are less than 2 months old and no modifications were done to them. Where is the best place to sell them?

    List them in the GT want ad section (parts and accessories). If nobody shows interest, try e-bay or gun-broker.

    Since they only have a whopping 90-Day Warranty on them, I'd imagine the secondary market would be decent, if offered as "Like New" at 1/2 the price...

    I bought two sets of preowned NS for a couple of my 1911's. If not messed up, I can't see a reason not to avail of a deal.

    You really shouldn't buy pre-owned sights, since when they're installed, the bottom part is compressed to fit that particular gun. At least according to the manual... This probably shouldn't matter if it's for the same make and or/model of gun.

    That being said, I'm sure people will still buy ones in good condition.
