Default Replacing tritium in Obzor?

7/28/2018: I did this myself. See tutorial thread posted here: http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=351478

OUTDATED:
This might be a long shot, but has anyone replaced the tritium in their Obzor units? I know someone on the Internet has done it with a Rakurs sight and posted pictures of the teardown, but I am not aware of anyone having done it with an Obzor.

I guess I'd like to know what to teardown to reach the tritium compartment. Then I can figure out how to replace it.

I would assume so. I would use the below thread as your guide as I believe the Obzor has a similar flat head compartment on the bottom, but I could be wrong.

This link wont help you with replacing the tritium. But its a food for thought.

I've seen on a fleebay LED light units made for Trijicon RX series and for Mepro M21 reflex sights. Why not make your own if you're skilled enough. There is nothing complex there.
