Default Rare K-frame Patridge sight or not?

Attached is a photo of a patridge front sight from my two Model 14-4, serial # 76K73xx and 76K92xx. (Unknown year of manufacture) I'm looking for a replacement with a fiber optic or other high visibility option. The black, patridge sight worked fantastic 30 years ago, but not so much now. Wearing bifocals doesn't make it easier either. I have not been able to find a "drop-in" replacement on the internet. My questions are: 1)is this a rare design only used briefly (it looks complicated to machine), 2) do people just not shoot these 1970's guns, 3) do people just not change out the sights, or 4) should I make these into "safe queens?" I'm sure a fiber optic sight could be custom manufactured, but that would be expensive. More than $100 for a sight is what I consider expensive. Any experiences with this sight, replacing it, suggestions?
