This is what the unopened current factory sealed Meprolight clam pack looks like. If you zoom in to the picture of the packaging you will notice that the clam pack is closed with 4 staples 2 on each side. If any of the staples are missing or deformed the package has probably been opened before. You cannot tell how old the sights are just by looking at the the packaging, but this packaging has been used since late 2007. With this packaging at least you know the sights are no older than 2007.

Two examples of older Meprolight packaging. The Owl insert was used from the early 2000`s until 2007. The Two Glocks in the sand insert were used pre 2000. If the sights you are buying look like these, be aware that at the are at least 3 years or more.

The unfolded model number insert paper. This sheet gives some tips on removing the stock sights and then installing the Meprolight sights back onto your slide. Meprolight recommends using LOCTITE 609 to glue the sights into place. I will note from my own experience installing sights on XD`s most have tight dovetails and will not require any LOCTITE.

The TRU-DOT`s are only sold as a pair. Kimber has been the sole importer of Meprolight products since 2000.

Synopsis: Meprolight TRU-DOT`s consist of a traditional 3 dot night sight system. These sights are offered as both an aftermarket product as well as an OEM option for several firearms manufactures. These sights are manufactured in Israel by Meprolight and are imported into the U.S. by Kimber MFG, Inc. While not manufactured in the U.S. Meprolight brings years of tried and true practical applications in combat, law enforcement, and as well as the armed citizen. Their experience brings about some of the most robust and usable sights available in the world.

Meprolight lets you know that they warranty their sights to have a usable illumination for a period of 12 years. 

The warranty extends only to the original purchaser, and you must fill out the registration card within 10 days of purchase. The sight lot number is located underneath the rear sight and should be a letter or number.

The sights are held by a felt covered plastic piece. The green paper is a folded insert that gives the sights model number, which pistol that sights fit and what color the sights included are. This insert will include an orange or yellow round sticker indicting what color the rear sights are. If no sticker in in place the sights are a green front and a green rear. As a note sometimes the paper is actually a different color and just like the sticker will indicate the color of the rear sight.
