What night sights do you prefer?

I'm looking to replace the night sights on my Pro BP 10 and wanted your opinions. Meprolight, Trijicon, TruGlow, Kimber Slant or Kimber wedge.
Please let me know your thoughts.
Thanks,
Jerod

I'm not certain if they're available for your pistol but a had a set of Dawson Precisions installed on my CZ PCR. The front dot is twice the size of the rears. They seem to be laser guided into alignment, they just work well!!! Compared to various other pistols I own or have owned with night sights these are my favorites...

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with any of the sights you listed. I like Kimber Slant and Tactical Wedge sights. I also like Dawson Precision. They make excellent sights. I have a few guns with Truglo TFX sights. Very bright day and night and easy to see. You also can’t go wrong with Trijicon.

Just installed the Truglo TFX Pros on my TLE II after the tritium on the old ones started to die out. Love the three-dot set up with the orange circle on the front sight.

That and combined with the U-notch gives me a very good sight picture that's easy and fast to pick up in nearly any lighting condition. Going be trying it out this weekend to see how it fares.

Also like how the front area of the rear sight is formed to allow one-handed manipulation if need be.

I assume you have not had time to try out the new TFX sights for POA/POI?

Front sight looks a little tall but it may just be the picture...

Actually just got back From the range. Point of aim is perfect.
Ran 300+ rounds through it with no problems.
