    Iv been looking everywhere to find tritium vials for my new TEC fob. Unfortunatly I can't find anyone or anywhere that sells them, where can I possibly get a 3x23 tritium vial

    There are a few people over on Candle Power Forums that are always selling tritium vials ...

    A couple of reliable choices are:

    B@rt is always good to deal with, and

    Merkava specifically for TEC products, but be patient, product ships from over seas.
    I have gotten trit keyfobs from Merkava in the past, he is very reliable.

    Hope this helps...Good Luck!!

    American businesses cannot sell them.

    Is there a big difference in the quality of those tritium vials? I only bought from Steve Ku so far, I can't really compare...

    I'm pretty sure Steve Ku gets em from Merkava...not sure why I think that, I just feel like I saw it written somewhere either here or the candlepower forum

    Yup 3x22.5 is what I ordered for the fobs and whatever the standard size is for the quantum I can't remember which it is

    Do the 3x22.5 vials shake around in the fobs? If so, are you concerned about the movement? Thanks for the info!

    It fits perfect in the tec s323, in the original tec fob when you place it in the trit insert tube there's a little space in the top bottom I cut two pieces of oring and put them top and bottom to center it up in the tube and glued it shut on each end and its solid and centered in the windows of the tec a3

    I've gotten mine from Merkava a few times now, great to deal with and good prices. Not cheap though still, if you nerd out and have to have every color lol

    I ordered 2 of the green vials that fit the Teceng fob from mixglo last month. I was impressed with how fast my order came in from China - IIRC it was less than a week. It was very well packaged and the vials glow. Don't know what else to say.

    The transactions went extremely smooth actually, I was quite shocked, I emailed then telling them what I want they sent me a paypal Invoice and that was it. I was impressed. This was along time ago though, so I can't vouch for now, but ya when I ordered through them it was a no brainer process.
