    Yea, trying to decide which I want.

    I'd like to get some where the front/rear are different colors but I'm having trouble finding a set that comes like that...I don't want to have to buy two sets.

    Thanks for the insight, I was really looking for red rear and green front. But I'll probably have to compromise.

    I suppose I wouldn't mind it, but I just thought the red/green would be a better contrast.

    Green/Green is the best combo. They're brighter and last longer.
    I know what you mean though, I initially though I wanted green rear/yellow or orange front... after reading up on night sights, I found out that's not ideal at all.

    Both Trijicon and Meprolight offer different combos though, but they highly recommend green/green.
    And after getting them and having them installed on my gun, I see what they mean.

    I prefer either XS big dots of Meprolights. The Trijicon vials just seem so small. Also at least with Meps and likely other 3 dots, they make the front larger/brighter to draw your attention.

    I didn't like Trijicon's either, when I saw them in person. I went with Meprolights.
    I may try XS Big Dots next. Not sure yet though.

    I was looking at the big dots too. It will be a few weeks till I can afford a set anyways so I have some time to make an informed purchase.

    I guess neither Trijicon nor Meprolight know what they are talking about then, because that's what was recommended to me by both. :dunno:

    Lol, ya. It's all personal preference. If you practice and can index your gun as you draw the dot mixup is very unlikely. Also the brighter/bigger front dot helps.
