As an old timer, I'm used to black sights except my Yost Hi-Power which has a gold line inlayed, or the occasional revolver with bronze or gold bead on a patridge.

All I can say is Thank You. After it was UNANIMOUS, I decided to change the Red insert for the Green. WOW!!!, what a difference. Even being nervous, it only took 15 minutes. I used toe nail clippers for trimming.

FWIW

FWIW, i have a cousin that swears he can not pick up the red laser pointers (~2 decades ago) on objects. i'm not sure if it was color blindness or what? that said, i wonder if green might not be better for anyone with any 'color' separation issues? just something to consider and this might just be a BS theory/thought? but i thougth of him reading this? Green does seem to be the 'going thing' now?

New guy here. Red color blindness is the most common. I'd go with whatever you pick up more easily.
