Replace the rear sight?

What are some recommendations for a replacement rear sight on a Stainless II? The front fiber optic sight is great, but the solid black rear sights should use some contrast, especially for my not-so-great eyes. Thoughts?

I'm thinking of replacing the black-on-black sights of my UC2 with green TruGlo sights.

Rumor has it that green is easier to see in the day-time, and I have a red Crimson Trace for the night.

I've installed the Tru-Glows too and I do like them. I've also installed a few sets of William's Fire Sights that have really bright fiber optics. I put a set of the William's sights on two Ruger .22s and they guys loved them. Getting ready to put a set on a Sig P220 for a friend. I don't know if they have them for your gun ... give them a look. I like Dawson Precision fiber optic front sights for many projects ...again I haven't looked to see if they have rear sights for you.

Chico, I have Truglo TFX sights on a few guns and they are very nice. The TFX sights are green day or night and have a white ring around the front sight. They are very nice for picking up your target.
