Default Copper John Dead Nuts sight in low light conditions

I bought a Copper John Dead Nuts sight a few months ago. It is not very bright, but it will get the job done during the day. When shooting in my back yard it is a great sight. I noticed that while shooting indoors the fiber optic part of the pin seems to disappear. Due to these unusual circumstances I have a question.Would my sightbe light enough to shoot during low light conditions? Thanks

I have the sight, and had absolutely no problems with seeing my pins in low light situations. I shoot indoor 3-D leagues, so I purchased the light that attaches to the top of the sight mount...but never have had to turn it on hunting.

Same experience here. It is definitely not the brightest fiber optic sight on the market because of its relatively low amount of fiber optic material but I think it still is bright enough for 99% of the hunting situations I am likely to encounter.

I've got this site, and I too wish it was a little brighter. But the fact of it is, the green pin(s) on it are still pretty bright in low light conditions, especially compared to the red one(s) Just make sure the green is your top pin, so that even in low light you can still get the deer as long as its relatively close in.

No problems here in low light with the exception of hunting out of my blind...I found when in the blind which is darker inside anyway it can really be hard to see your pins towards the end of the evening...Even when you still have plenty of shooting light left...I have since bought the afterburner light and WOW it sure brightens things up I will however probably only have it on my bow when I plan on hunting out of a blind set-up...
