What diameter fiber optic rod?

New member here. Have an Aegis Elite Pro with stock fiber optic sights. The rod on the front sight fell out at the range yesterday. Anyone know offhand what diameter these are?

I don’t know the diameter but did you look in the case your gun came with because they may have included some spare rods. I know all my Springfield guns that came with fiber optics front sights had spare rods. If not call customer service and they will send you a replacement.

I canít imagine they cost much but I would think they would supply some extras with the gun.

Bought a 6” rod on eBay $6.00. Thanks to YouTube cutting & making new sight was easy, but I’m still annoyed 1) the original broke after couple hundred rounds and 2) all kimber gave me was a simple “sorry.” Have enough rod left over to last a lifetime.
