    SO I bought my XDm40 Compact before they were offered with night sights. The dealer had told me that Springfield makes their sights so that only SPringfield can take them off. I was looking into purchasing night sights, but would this mean Id have to send my slide into springfield for this addition. I also see people talking about a certain sight that fits (forget its name), but does Springfield keep these in stock??

    The sights are a real ***** to replace and I have decided to just pay the $25 (for front and rear, $15 front only) to the gunsmith to replace them. I have the XS big dot package on my XD40sc and love them. I don't even need a night light when it's laying on my night stand.

    If they fit a Sig they are supposed to fit an XD (and I am assuming an XDm).

    Go to XD-HS2000.com and check out the sights page.

    You will be very happy

    If your dealer isn't very knowledgeable then, as lots of folks can change them out for you.

    The XDm's are generally not as hard to swap and the XD line either.

    Does anyone know how the factory Springfield night sights compare to trijicon trinium?

    The factory sights have Trijicon vials, so they are very similar, however the factory ones look like the stock contrast sights in size and shape. The aftermarket Trijicon ones look more like the sights on a regular XD.

    XD(M) sights are a breeze to remove if you have a decent sight pusher tool, but some of the XD ones are impossible.

    *EDIT* Also, the XD(M) Compact is not available yet from the factory with night sights unless they are special ordered that way. They go to the SA Custom Shop to be installed. I am sure if you call them up they would be happy to install them for you, but they are pricey...

    In terms of functionality, do they both perform the same (brightness, light charge required, etc)? I was the one asking you about your products.. I thought maybe other people had experience with them.

    There is no charge required, they have tritium inside and those last for about 12 years, the brightness will be the same between the factory night sights and the Trijicons, because the factory sights use Trijicon vials as well.
