    I have a browning XT trap gun and the front sight bead is the interchangable slide in style. I have broke the 2 white inserts that came with the gun. I have the orange and green style, but no whites left. I haven't looked real hard yet. Where would I go to buy either another kit or some white inserts?
    Thanks, Shane

    Don't waste your time or money on Brownell's; they'll overcharge you and then kill you with shipping.

    The sights are made by Hi-Viz (North Pass Ltd.) out in Fort Collins, Colorado.

    Call them on the phone at either 970-407-0426 or 800-589-4315.

    Ask them for lite pipes for a Comp sight in white and specify the size you want (I think there are 3) If you get the biggest ones you can sand them down to a smaller size. The last time I ordered them they were 99ยข each. Ask them to send them first class mail in a padded envelope. It's cheaper than UPS.
