Default Front Factory Tijicon Site Out Again!

Just got my slide back from SA for my XDm .40 S&W, they replaced the front Trijicon that stopped glowing. Burned 200 rounds through it. Guess what, site went out again! WTF? I am guessing it has something to do with dropping my gun in my bag when it is still hot, could this be the reason? Crazy.

Idk man. I've never had a problem with them aside from having to do a bit of fitting for the glocks rear sight.

Maybe its a heating/cooling issue that's causing the "glass" to crack?

Your heating cooling principle sounds plausible, guess i will send back to SA again, ask them to put a factory dot sight on it and give up on the Trijicon.

I wonder if they are feeding you old stock of course they would have to have been sitting on it for like 12 years. Unlikely unless the same sights work on an older model.
