Looks like Springfield or trijicon should be getting a call

Wow sorry to hear man! But that's gotta be a defective sight for sure! (trijicon sights are suppose to last A LOT longer than that) I would call Springfield for sure and have them send you a new set of sights or have them replace them

If they are the tritium night sights they are supposed to have a 12 year shelf life. Did you drop the gun or something? They are pretty hard to break.

No drops or blunt force trauma to the sight, emailed Springfield, looks like they will send me shipping instructions, will be interesting to see how this experience works out.

Its defective for sure, especially since they have an estimated 10-12 year life span. The trijicons on my G31 are about 6 years old now and still going strong. I have no doubt that trijicon will replace them for you.
