    I have an AMT Hardballer. The elevation screw keeps backing out. I am thinking of replacing the sight with one from Millett, as that is all I can find as a direct replacement.
    Can anyone tell me anything about the sight, pro or con? Thanks.

    Wish I could, I haven't bought one from them. Mine are equipped with night sights. Which I highly recommend.

    I had a set of those exact sights on a Colt Commander years ago , they sit up higer than most of the sights that people want these days but other than that they're great , fully adjustable sights .

    As a matter of fact I have a set in my gunsafe that I am going to install on a Charles Daly 45 here pretty soon .

    One thing though I never used them on a daly carry piece or anything so how well they might hold up to being banged and clanged around alot I realy don't know , the only time I carried it was as a backup on hunting trips and walks in the woods for about 4 years .

    The Novaks hold up really well. I have found them to be very durable. I have Novak-style night sights on my Les Baer, and I have never had any problems with them.

    Are you using it for target shooting or for tactical/self defense type shooting? If the later, then get some low profile fixed Novaks.

    Cousin Jack, My slide is milled for a Micro sight. It doesn't have a dovetail, which greatly limits my choices. Millett is supposed to be a direct swap. I'll find out soon, as I ordered it from last Monday. I'll let you know how they work out.
