    throw them away get new ones. See if anyone needs any sites for whatever gun you had the night sites on.

    meh even if the night sights die, they still work perfectly fine as a 3 dot sight.

    Mail them to Japan? They have tons of RadCon experience.

    Get them recharged? Many companies that sell tritium sights can put new compound in them for you. Cheaper than getting new sites even.

    If you don't just give them to me like I suggested then this is the intelligent and correct answer as far as Im concerned...!

    The warranty on my night sights has expired. Can I get them recharged?

    Tritium can not be 'recharged', however, we can replace the lamps for a nominal fee. Please contact our Customer Service Department for return and payment instructions.
