I will agree the group that selected the TFO sights as a great overall sights. That said, my XDs are competition machines, and I am partial to Dawson sights, with an adjustable rear.

Great poll, Chrome.

My opinion is the Meprolite Tritium.

I use, and plan to continue using, the factory sights on the pistol. I have no problem with aftermarket sights, I just have no desire to use them (or shell out my limited cash reserves).

I like my 24/7 because they're taller than the usual pistol sights. However it's somewhat of an acquired taste.. e.g. once you acquire them for $120 you'd better learn to like them J/K. I have them on all my auto-loading pistols.

My HK sports tritium sights from Ameriglo. I have done dry fire practice w/ it in extreme low light, sighting on a white switchplate cover on the wall and the sights are extremely quick to aquire and very bright. Whatever sights I use, I make sure that the forward facing side on the rear sight has a good straight wall on it to use as a lever point in case of a serious jam malfunction.

I am considering a set of TFO sights for the XD after hearing some good reviews on them, but I wish bobert1 would get a set first so I can see if I like them. :wink:

I noticed that it said the sights are "For SIG 225/6/8/9/PRO Big Dot Tritium Express Night Sight" How do you know that they will also work on the xd? do they work on the sc too, I would imagine so... these are the type I would like to buy. Thanks for the help.

The dovetails on the XD are cut the same as the Sig 226.

I have these on an XD-9 Sub-Compact.

I thought the TFO's on the subcompact I just sold were great but after getting my new Kimber with Meprolights I have to say the Meprolights are better than the TFO's in low light, probably due to the sapphire lenses in the Meps.

The TFO's were definately better in daylight but not so much as to make the meps crappy in bright light.

My vote is for Meprolights :wink:

I thought the same thing. I just use stock sights but have been told by friends that Trijcons are real nice.
