I've got about 250 rounds through my Eclipse II and they're still okay but I don't expect them to last much longer based on others experience.

I've got 2000 rounds through my Custom CDP and 50 rounds through my Ultra Eclipse. No problems, still bright as ever. By the way, this new Eclipse is Awesome! Every bit as accurate as my full size.

I have seen a lot of bad press on Kimbers night sights on the web in the past few months, what gives Kimber? All these shooters can't be wrong.

My front site went dark on my Eclipse after about 500 rds. From now on I will do my best to steer clear of these sights after reading about all the problems with them. I would suggest that if your sights go dark, it's not worth the time, money and effort to send it back to have them replaced only to have it happen again. Just shell out the few extra bucks up front and have them replaced with better quality night sights. You got to figure that if you send your gun back 2 or 3 times in the first year you own it for warranty replacement of the sights, you're already out $70-$100 bucks, not to mention the time you go without your gun.
