    I have a 1969 C hi power in very good condition.As I get older the sights are starting to be a bit small.My question is ,do I have different sights put on or do I leave an old classic stock?I don't plan on ever getting rid of it,but I'm having a hard time convincing myself to "customize" a c series pistol.Opinions please.

    I added a mark-3 to my gun cabinet when the sights became small on my 69C.

    I still enjoy taking the classic to the range even if I can't shoot it as well.

    I wouldn't touch that gun, but to each their own.

    Its a classic. Leave it alone...

    you could use some model paint or nail polish in a florescent color on the front sight...that way you make no permanent change to that beautiful Browning but it may help in picking up the front sight...

    If you decide to try the painting the front sight option...paint white onto the front sight before applying the color...it makes the color pop better than without using the white as a base coat...
