My advice is get the Trijicons or the Meprolights that look them (vertical pegs).
The problem with the slanted-front night sights is that you become almost unable to rack the slide one handed if you need to. The straight-up pegged look of the Trijicons makes it much easier to catch the rear sight on something if you have to rack without your support hand.
The first training class you go to, this will become painfully clear...best to address it before that point.

I would go with the novaks as they are probably the stock sights on it. I also would recommend going with a two color sight. I had a g27 with red rear two dots and a green front dot. The green front was just a little bit brighter to make it POP out at you in the sight picture. I sold that gun and still miss it.

I got a chance to try the heinies and really like them but haven't had a chance to try the big dots. 3 dots confuse my eyes for some reason, at least the ones that have the dots near the notch. How do the XS sites affect accuracy with the V-notch rear?

I have always put Trijicons on my handguns and they have never failed me. I have a Glock 27 with Novak sights, (Trijicon lamps), and they are very nice low profile sights!
Not that there aren't other good night sights but Trijicon has a stellar reputation!

I too am leaning toward the XS 24/7 'BigDot' for my carry gun.
