I'll just add 2 of my 2 cents.
I like fiber optic, but there are a few that makes them and brags they are best. What to look for are sights that have a way of light getting in from the top or back. There are a few companies that just stick fiber optics in with no way for light to enter. Light cannot enter from the viewing side and work. Think of the old fiber optic lights. Light enters one end and out the other while the length just glows.
A good bad example is what Sig just did. They are marketing night sights called Xray sights with a Tritium vial stuck in a green fiber optic shell. The fiber optic is useless. Believe Truglo makes them. There is no place for light to enter. The tritium does not supply enough internal light to make a difference. A set came on my Sig P229 Legion. I ripped them off and stuck the best of the best Trijicon HD sights on. They use a luminous with a tritium vial in the middle. It is extraordinary and easy seen in both day or night.
Other than the ones they made for Sig, Truglo does have some nice ones.
