green/green firesights

Anyone know where I can source green front/green rear firesights like the ones that come factory on certain single six's? I've looked online and the only ones I can find are red front/green rear. I haven't tried ruger directly yet.

Seems green/green is a Ruger exclusive, but you can try!

I emailed Ruger last week and they replied for me to call them with my serial number and gave me numbers to trijicon, williams, etc....I appreciate their reply but I think they missed the point of my inquiry.

So what is it that you expected them to do?
They gave you the numbers to two manufacturers. I would call Williams and ask if they can sell you a set for your gun. They have excellent service.

I expected them to answer the question I clearly asked them, which was if the green/green firesight combination was exclusive to them as I can't find them anywhere other than green/red. Williams list the red/green sets as does Ruger on shopruger.com....my single ten, single nine and stainless 32 h&r all came with the green/green....my 17hmr and single seven came with standard black sights. I would like to put the firesights on those as well but I prefer the green/green over the red front.

My Single Nine came with the green/green, but added the green/red to my .17...no biggie to me...

Order a set of the green/red then order some replacement light tube in green and swap the tube over (or take it to any decent gunshop to have a different color tube put in).

Okay, I see what you were asking them now. But Ruger customer service is not the same as the Ruger online store. You could call them and give them the serial number of your gun. And arrange to send it to them to have the sights installed. Probably at your cost or you may be able to get them to send you a set.
I have dealt directly with Williams on a front sight that broke on one of my Rugers which was red and I asked if they would replace it with green. They were happy to send me the green replacement.
You can't lose anything but a few minutes of time calling them to ask if they will sell you what you want.
And by the way welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the replies guys...I'm going to call williams directly and see what they have to say. The red front isn't that big of a deal, but my eyes pick up the green better.
