Been looking on James' site. Trijicon, Meprolight, TFO??? Don't know. I'm sure each has its advantage, but is there one that is really better? I want it for my xds.45 CCW day and night. Thanks!!
I have had (and it's been known to some on this forum) damn near every night sight possible. I had orange and green meps on my XDs , I have had Trijicon HD's on my MP9c and i've had at least 7 sets of TFO's so in my opinion it's not even a contest.Lol I have both HDS are faster and tfos solve vision problems.
Safety is a momentary choice. Prior performance and certification are completely irrelevant.
Then don't reply,alot of us have "had them all"
I had similar questions. At one point I was certain I was going with Trijicon HDs. Then I found pics on Diamond Speed Sights and researched them and finally decided on them. I just got two slides back from James yesterday and mailed him two more today ~ my Sigs.Been looking on James' site. Trijicon, Meprolight, TFO??? Don't know.

Ok your right on both of your complaints. I yelled at Fisher a year and a half ago for the green/green tritium on the HDs (he helped trijicon develop them) he just shrugged. I don't think trijicon was interested in making it I got the impression I might not have been the first person to ever complain about it.I want to be able to use my rear sight for one handed slide manipulations, this is near impossible with TFOs due to the sloped shape thus ruling them out in my opinion.
I want tritium sights on my defensive pistols that have different color tritium lamps front and rear or a straight 8 setup ,thus ruling out Trijicon HDs.Come on Trijicon you offer different color rear tritium lamp options on your regular bright and tough sights ,get with the program.
So IMHO original Trijicons or Meps are still some of the best combat sights on the market.
I teach one hand manipuation all the time. Parent holding their kid, person on their back or being injured (Not from gunfire, never happens, but hitting the bad guy in the face and breaking your hand happens often enough) Its a very legitimate concern. I've taught multiple 1 handed people this year, all appreciated the HDs on top of either tread taped slides or serrated slides from atei (my guns atei, their guns I"d stick tread tape on their slides)
