    :( Earlier this year MMC sights and IWI (PT night sights) were bought out by 21st Century. The parent company moved both operations to Las Vegas. Many of the talented people from MMC did not take the move, and have left the company. Talking to Al (MMC's gunsmith, who failed to give me his last name), 21st century paid Mexican day labors to pack up the Texas plant and ship everything to Las Vegas, not one box was marked as to what's in it. Al said he didn't know if the sight I requested was in stock, and couldn't say, if in another two months, if he would know. He did let slip, that MMC has not manufactured anything in the last five months. Now I lucked out and found out Brownells still had the sight I was looking for in their inventory. This explains why some sights in Brownells inventory are listed as "Not availiable from manufacture at this time." We can only hope this is a temporary coma for a once fine company. I suggest anyone looking for MMC sights for their autoloader check with Brownells before they sell out, www.brownells.com Just thought I'd pass this along.:confused:

    That may be good news for me. Since they will be local. :D

    Although I am kind of leary about sending them anything. They totally screwed up a Browning High Power of mine by installing the wrong sight which was so wrong that it prevented the hammer from falling. Then they wouldn't call me back dispite several phone calls by me to them. Finally I got the guy who they elected to handle the problem and he made it right by buying me a new slide.
    He even admited to me, without my asking that he was avoiding me because he didn't want to give me the bad news. :D
