Nice job. How you like those TFX sights? Work good in low light, etc.?

I made the mistake of dropping my DLC hammer on the slide,when I was changing the parts out. First mistake was having my gun Cerakoted by a Non-Authorized/ Certified Applicator. AX Tactical told me they were having issues with there oven. But think it was a mixing issue. Finish feels rubbery. Going to get it fixed later, thinking Black-T and/or Electroplating Black Chrome. Think I spent around $500 in upgrades not including the Crimson trace grips.

They super bright in light and they glow better to me than the stock night sights that kimber includes.

From what I heard was they were too bright in day and not enough in subdued light. At least they used their heads with the slots on top to help let light into the fiber. There are other companies that just sink the fiber in and only way light can get in is with the dot that faces you. Not very good imho. Not very bright at all. Dunno which sights that your ultra came with but they are usually Mepro tritium which is not meant to be real bright.

I was just joking about the scratch. I still don't see it. Anyway I wouldn't worry about it. The pistol looks great. Congratulations.

The finished product is cosmetically a great looking gun but I'm curious as to what was wrong with the gun that prompted you to basically totally rebuild it?
