P290 night sights dead

I've had 2 factory front night sights now that have both gone dead in less than a year. The first one came with the pistol new and the second came from a Sig replacement which died after one month and 2 trips to the range. Anyone else have this problem with their front night sights on the P290?

I have not had any issues with my SIGLites on my P229R... and I've owned it for over 4 years.

Perhaps the recoil from such a tiny pistol is beating them up... My first thought, though, is unprofessional installation. Send the slide to the night sight manufacturer to get the tritium tubes replaced.

From what I understood it was a 10yr warranty on those things. Guaranteed never to dim for 10 years!

This the the first Sig that I have where there's a problem with the night sights. All of the other Sig never ever had any issues. I'm thinking it's something about the barrel design and how it fits the slide which might be affecting the sights.

Do you have access to a Geiger counter?

All 3 dots are out?

You guys with the factory Siglites, are you actually able to see the green glow brightly even in bright sunlight?

Mine look white in bright sunlight. They look a tad different than plain white dot sights however as you can see the small lens in each. They do not appear green though.

The rear sights are great and shine even during the day, the problem is with the front sights.
