    Have you thought of installing just a front tritium? If you like the factory rear keep em. You can buy the front sight alone for about 30 bucks.

    I will add that XS Big Dots really do make FAST target acquisition a reality for the first shot. They certainly are not intended for pin-point accuracy, but they will get you on target fast. Just dot the "i."

    the few times the gun has been between me and trouble, i wasn't noticing the rear sight.

    the dot the " i " on sig p239 allows for aimed fire if the situation allows you the oppertunity.

    if i were to change out anythingon some other guns, it would be the front sight with a bright orange insert
    like whats on some smiths i have, or a gold bead

    I may be way off "target" here (pun intended), but it seems to me that as long as the rears are the same color, the front and rear are highly contrasting, and the front is the MOST visible that the color shouldn't/doesn't matter all that much. That being said, most of it is probably preference and what works best for each individual shooter...just my two pennies worth.

    You forgot one other choice. The Gun Zone -- Glock Gag Photo

    Seriously though I voted two tritium night sights since that is what my EDC is equipped with.

    I have never actually seen those in real life, and everything I have heard about them has been positive. I would like to give them a try. Guess I"ll ask around next time I'm out shopping and see if I can find them.

    Shooters Plus - Shooting Accessories & Gun Parts is where i got the ones on my Sig P229. They typically have been least expensive & ship pretty fast.

    Thanks for the link bud. They must be popular because they are out of stock for my Glocks right now! I will keep checking. :-)

    DRM, looks like you did a fine job of engineering that adjustable rear; good work.

    J-Point Red Dot rear sight. Dont need any tall front or rear sights in case the dot does not turn on. Fast Pick up and fast shoot. Battery is 1 year old and still going. I will change it out next month before my next "Gun Fighting" class.

    Same here, I love stock glock sites, I just wish they were metal.

    Night sights - orange rear 2 dot and green front dot. This lets the front dot be a bit brighter than the rears for easy pick-up in low light. You can still see the rears.

    For my snubby, I have stainless rear sights with a big dot on the front.
