    Default Who makes the best Night Sights?

    With so many on the market and each one claiming to be the best just what are the best brands? I have researched the hell out of it and narrowed it down to two brands trijacon and meprolight. I'm looking for user feedback on the sights any and all information would help.

    They both seem real good,and the Trijicons that come factory on so many pistols have a good rep.

    This is what I have on mine.
    TruGlo Tritium & Fiber Optic Night Sights
    Big Dot Tritium Front,24/7 Tritium Rear
    Glock factory installed Trijicons

    I like the TruGlo sights the best due to them looking the same day or night unlike the Trijicons white in the daylight green at night.

    Damn you Pokey!! Oh I will be following you in buying one for my Glocks. What color green or red? This sight seems a bit better then the Xs Big Dot sights.

    PS. Thank you, Pokey for the recommendation of TAS Pistol Sights.

    I reeally like the trijacon site sI had installed on my RIA1911A1 Tac. Very easy to see and align in the dark.

    Well I cant seem to find the trijacon's for the ruger SR9C. They have them in the meprolight so thats what I'll have to use on my wifes gun. I think I'll throw them on my M&P as well. Has anyone used them? I hear they are sold and marketed by kimber is this true?

    Default Night Sights - a great investment for self defense

    Trijicon provides a good sight system that will run you $80 to $100. This is the brand used by most law enforcement. You can see tritium sights with no ambient light, the half life on this type of sight is 10 years, which means in 10years the sights will be only 1/2 as bright as new sights. Some shooters are still satified with 10 year old sights because they are still visible in total darkness, some replace between 7 to 10 years. These sights can be installed by a user but most gun stores that carry these sights will install them for a low price. I perfer this type of sight because the three dot system is used on most modern semi autos; if you have more than one handgun they will be very similar aiming and shooting between standard and tritium sights. I have one handgun with a laser sighting system that I also like, however the laser is of very limited use in bright sunlight and more susceptible to jars, and hard bumps.
