Mark IV Hunter Fiber Optic Sight Question

I cant seem to find an answer to this. The Mark IV is the only pistol I have that came with a front Fiber Optic front sight. I do not know how it works exactly? Does it need lite for a period of time to illuminate at peak performance or does the ambient light simply enhance its visual effect etc? Thanks for any feedback,

The latter. It picks up light to increase visibility.

Thanks for the response. So then it would seem it does not matter if it sits sealed up in its case until I remove it at the range then correct?

It doesn't glow like a Night sight,works off ambient light. Keep it clean and replacement tubes are available

I find the green works best for me in low light. Does not need exposure to light to work. Only enhancement.

I put a HI VIZ FO front sight on my MKIV Target. I also find the green works best for me.
A worthwhile mod.

No problem! It can sit in the case with no problem. It'll be ready to go when you are.

I just ordered a Hunter last night. Found one available online at a price I was willing to pay. I will get it threaded for a can
