    Can I fit Fibre Optic on Kahr TP 45?

    My eyes are not what they were a good many years ago. I'd like to find some BIG fibre optics for my TP45. It came with the dove tail sights. Problem is, I've not found any fibre optics BIG enough. I put a Dawson Precision on but its such a tiny front optic, it simple doesn't work well for me. I think something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000NOORWK...NsaWNrPXRydWU= would work for me but they do not have any listed for the Kahr. Not sure what size dovetail Kahr uses, but could find out I suppose and then look for one of these sight sets that have the same or larger dovetail and have a gunsmith install then.

    Would appreciate any thoughts you folks might have.

    Kahr's web sight shows a TRUGLO night sight "For K, MK, P, PM, T and TP models with new dovetail (produced after 2004). WILL NOT FIT P380 Models."

    Truglo sights are very good .... I’ve used their tfo sights before and they are very good .....

    I really have no need for a Tritium set, but have emailed Truglo and asked if they can make that available with only fibre. Will let you know what they say.

    Quick reply....but looks like tritium is only option. My choices would be either the All Green, or Green front/Yellow rear (leaning towards this one). Have any of you used either of these combo's? Thoughts?

    Below are our sight offerings for KAHR Arms pistols.
    Models K, MK, P, PM, T and TP - (excludes P380)

    TG13KA1PC TFX Pro green front (orange Focus Lock)/green rear

    TG13KA1A TFX green front (white Focus Lock)/green rear

    TG231K1W Tritium Pro (White Focus Lock)/green rear

    TG131AT1 TFO green front/green rear

    TG131AT1Y TFO green front/yellow rear

    Please note, these sights will ONLY fit the above model pistols, with the new style dovetail cut, produced after 2004.

    Thoughts: I don't use them but in a self defense / rapid fire situation, your focus should be on the front sight so whatever you see the best...I just pick up the front blade including on the flash if needed with all of my handguns...

    Good thought. I'll prob go with yellow/green, although likelyhood of my needing it at night is slim. Prob will be carrying my Walthers PPS 9mm which has night sights and is just a bit lighter for carry.
