Stainless II front sight help

I recently purchased a Stainless II... after running 500 rounds through it I realized that I have trouble focusing on the red front sight. A brighter color sight maybe a green or white would definitely help out.
Can I change the red to a green without replacing the whole sight ?

yes Fiber optic rods can be purchased in different colors from Dawson Precision and other sources. You must buy the right diameter. I have not seen Kimbers since they started fiber optic but have replaced several others. Usually they rod is inserted and "belled" on each end or the center with a soldering iron so it does not come out. I am sure someone has a youtube video on it like everything else...

I know this isn't from Kimber but I'm sure it's probably the same method. Look at page 20.
