Looks like a good upgrade. What does it cost, I don't see the price.

If you go to the elsiepeaforum, there were a bunch of people awhile back who had that sight mod done to their LCP. The workmanship was exceptional. People really like it. It seems to be a good value for the price.

There were those who felt that it didn't make much difference and people would be best off spending the money on extra ammo to become better shots. Their claim was that in a SD situation, there wouldn't be time to use the sights anyway.

Others said that lasers would be a better deal, etc.

One issue, at one period of time, some LCPs had an issue with barrel peening. Since the barrel and slide are matched on the LCP, there was a stated concern that "would Ruger try to fit a new barrel to a modified slide?"

Theoretically, a person could spend the $100 or so for a slide with sights, run into the peening problem and send if back to Ruger for repairs. Ruger's typical policy is to return the firearm back to the person in the stock-as-it left-the factory-condition. (Wolff aftermarket springs, stainless guiderods, etc would not be returned.)

No one knew if the slide would be returned with the aftermarket sights.

I guess they would be OK, but I thought the original low profile sights were to help mitigate snagging from the pocket etc. I just used bright red fingernail polish on the front sight and & florescent green in the rear divot to help with sighting, but I don't much expect to shoot it much over 7 yds. as point and shoot and that's what I practice for @ my local range.

My LCP is an up close and personal sidearm. I also shoot it 7 yards max for practice. Seems the Ruger designers had the same idea for short distances, hence the low profile sights. I don't see a need for those particular sights shown. I'd use the money for a good quality made holster. Just my 2 cents.
