From the other variant of the design, the QB78D. It comes with your typical, oversized fibre optic sights meant for the near blind, apparently.

If you hate fiber optic sights so much, could you not just paint over them? It would be less stressful than your current solution! I don't see a huge difference, I use them to quickly line up the sights, then I just treat them like normal sights.

When it comes to open sights I am old school. Perhaps it originated from my days shooting a little springer as a young teen, way back when sights were made of rusty, smelly steel.
Today only one of my rifles has true iron sights with a thin post for the front sight. I find it a treat to shoot with it. It is neat to pinpoint exactly where you are aiming, instead of having oversized blobs that obscure the target. Guess it's my fault for having good eye sight. Suppose in my elder years I may appreciate having those giant "lights" guiding where I'd be pointing.

I had a 150 year old wall hanger musket once. the front sight on it was like a little round brass or steel ball ; small as or smaller than a bb. I'll bet they hit where they shot with just that. it looked like it wouldv;e worked good. i think it mightv;e been called a bead sight.
