Well, as most of you know my prototype Glock Combat Carry rear sight passed the torture test and actually surpassed all expectations. What most folks don’t know is that the design allows for quick change out of the rear blade with automatic re-zero.
That said, I’m thinking about a production run of sights with different color/configuration blades for it. I’d appreciate any input you care to offer. Thanks for taking part in the poll.
For those of you who haven’t seen the torture test, here it is:

On my Glock 19 I am currently using tritium night sights. The rear color is orange with a green front sight. I would think a high visibility orange or yellow would work well.
I didn't see a poll, so put me down for a "green" vote. I took a look at your site, and recommend others do so, as well.
"To reject the notion of expertise, and to replace it with a sanctimonious insistence that every person has a right to his or her own opinion, is silly."
it must be me alone because I like the dot-in -a-box sights that come with the glock. I just wish the front sight was not plastic
I voted for white dots in the back. However, I think you should offer more than one type. Plain black, white dot, and a night sight would be a good start. BTW I love the green front sight. If only it would fit my Smith.....

And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
I got night sites but I would normally be picking up the front sight depending on the situation.
First, if you are in a close quarters gunfight, the color or type of your sights aren't going to matter because there is a very high probability that you aren't going to be using them.
That being said, I have the Trijicon Bright & Tough Night Sights on my Glock 19, and all three dots are green.

Got the tritium on the 1911s but just installed the Green on the G-19. May add a set of green to the G-30 next week or so.
I only care about the front sight. In a defensive situation, I doubt I would take the time to aim. Just point and shoot and I want to be able to pick up the front sight quickly.
Rear sight? There is a rear sight?
I like orange tritium on the back with green tritium on the front if I were to go with night sights BUT any color other than green has about half the duration before decay than green does.
Personally, I like a laser over night sights. After the first flash you wont be able to see NS anyway.

I have Glocks with Meps/green rear & yellow front, and Trij/all green...I prefer all green.OMO

For a defensive handgun, black in the back frees up your brain matter to focus on the the sight that matters. The human eye picks up green faster than any other color, so a green front only is the quickest sight to acquire. I prefer a black Novak rear sight.
