    Somewhere down the road, I would like to try the TruGlo TFO's, when they are available for my gun.

    +1 on that set up, ront.

    I do not like rear lamps. I have the Hilton Yam 10-8 sight on the rear of my Nighthawk and a Novak NS on the front. Very crisp sight picture and no distracting glow in the rear.

    I do have front and rear night sights on a Les Baer, but these are adjustable sights and somehow Baer gets the rears dimmer than the front, so they are livable.

    Hi everybody. I asked about night sights on a Taurus mil pro pt-111. You gave some nice suggestions, but none will work on this gun. I called Taurus today and they said that they are trying to get some made for this gun in less than a year from now. So we will see. Thanks for the replies. Jeff.

    to be honest, I wasn't replying to your post, I replied to the original post (as did everyone else that I can tell)
    perhaps you should make your own thread next time and it will be noticed more easily

    I will not have another pistol without Nite Sites if they are available. I have Tritium iron sites on my AR-15 and a Tritium bead on my Mossberg and Tritium on the Glock 23. When I replace the ones on my Glock, I will definitely switch to a two color combination. The Yellow Front and Green Rear does increase speed on target.

    The new XD9sc I am ordering I will be getting with the Heinie Straight 8 Tritium as I understand it is faster for the human eye to align a vertical sight image than a horizontal sight image and see how that works out. If I don't like it, I will probably switch over to a set of traditional 3 dot but with the two color contrast.

    My only concern is consistency! All my other pistols use a traditional 3 dot configuration horizontal alignment and to switch over to a 2 dot vertical alignment has me wondering if this will be confusing in a moment of "fight or flight." It's bad enought that I like many people, do switch between 2 or 3 different carry weapons, but also to switch to a totally different sight alignment as well does give me pause.

    Any thoughts on this issue?

    +1 on the TFOs. I have them on my XD45 and they are far and away much better in daylight conditions than the Mepros on my Ultra Carry. You can easily see the TFOs 24/7. I have a hard time picking up the dots on my Mepros in the daylight.

    I had the chance to fire a rental weapon with these sights. Once you master the learning curve, they work well. However... I did not find them as fast as the XS Express 24/7 Big Dot Tritium. That sight picture was much quicker to establish for me. I have installed the XS sights on all my defensive firearms now.

    I think my problem with the SureSights was that I was spending more effort focusing on the rear sight to get the "triangle" lined up perfectly. I don't think I conciously pay attention to the "stick" on the "lollipop" when establishing the XS sight picture.

    I have TruGlo TFO's on all of my carry guns. They are outstanding in all light levels - even in twilight when conventional nite sights tend to be really hard to see.
    We stock 'em with a green front, and yellow rears. With the color contrast, that front site picks up instantly. They are the fastest sights I've ever used.


    Gary, I have the same sights on my G17. These are the ones with N/S's in them as well? I didn't think I'd like them but the Glock Dr put them on to have me check them out and I chose to keep them.

    I have the same setup, green up front, yellow in the rear. In overcast lighting, they are like lighthouse beacons. As you mention, at dusk before the N/S's would kick in well, they're superb.

    Getting ready to put them on another G17 shortly as well.
