anyone know who manufactures the factory night sights that come with FNS, if you buy with the NS option?

if FN makes the sight itself, does anyone know where they get the tritium inserts?

The tritium sights cannot be repaired so if the tritium insert falls-out you need to R&R (remove and replace) the sight. The tritium insert and/or broken/used tritium sights (service life of 10 yrs., some 20 yrs. rare) must be disposed of properly and not thrown in the trash as it is illegal. Tritium inserts cannot be purchased by the public as Tritium is radioactive.
Thanks, in asking "if FN makes the sight itself, does anyone know where they get the tritium inserts?"
I was trying to determine whether FN makes the sight housing itself, but then obtains the tritium inserts from a manufacturer like Trijicon or Mepro. My understanding, for example, is that AmeriGlo makes the sight housing but obtains the tritium inserts from Trijicon.

Based on the comments received, it would seem that FN's factory night sights come from Trijicon.

Thanks all.
