    I have both on various weapons. I prefer the Meprolights because I can put a brighter green on the front and slightly dimmer orange on the rear. In low light, this makes it easier to keep attention on the front sight while still having visible rear sights.

    I've got rear Meps and front Trijs on one pistol. Weird I know, but I broke the screw off the front Mep when trying to install it and Meprolight wouldn't replace it without me buying a whole new set. Trijicon however, sent me a brand new front for $40 (the regular price for one front being $68) when I called them and gave my sob story to a sales rep.

    The Trij dot is a bit bigger, but the Meps have bigger white rings. Interestingly, they are both equally bright in pitch dark, even though the Meps are '07 and the Trijs are '11 datemarked. I guess you can't go wrong with either, just that Trijicon seems to be more expensive, but has significantly better customer service.

    I've 'heard' that Trijs tend to last longer. Doe anyone have extended experience with both to confirm/disprove this?

    I've had trijicons for a while and like them a lot. I've had none with meps. I have only seen them. What I do like more than both is truglo tfo's. They are super bright day and night and my rear are yellow front green.

    I love my trijicons. I have shot with them in low light but not total darkness yet. Anyway they are easy to pick up and seem bright enough.

    I would seriously check out the new Trijicon HD's.

    I got to see both the orange and the yellow on two M&P's and I think I'll be going for the yellow Trijicon HD's on my next pistol. Which will likely be a G-19 Gen 4 or an S&W M&P.

    The Trijicon HD's are seriously bright in both day and night. They are a little pricey than their regular tritium night sights, but wow, they really jump out in day light. I think definitely worth the extra price.

    I have both on guns, and definitely prefer trijicon. Better visibility to me.

    Threw a wrench in the mix and ordered the TruGlo TFO's. Fit my eye well. I will post pics when they are installed.

    Good luck with those, but here's a little warning. TFOs were very popular for a few years among the IDPA shooters I know (we do mostly outdoor, daylight shooting with a fair number of low-light and no-light indoor stages at various points throughout the season). Visually, the TFOs were very nice...until a number of shooters had the front light-pipes come flying out of their guns. The glue they use to attach the tritium vial to the FO pipe doesn't seem very robust...

    So got the sights in this week and had them installed today. I can tell you as far as the way they look and set up is very very nice. We will see if I have any durability issues. I will keep you posted.
