green is always the brightest, at least thats what i have always read(and i think green has a longer lifespan, for tritium). i think yellow is the second brightest.

If you are talking about the tru glo sight made in Texas you may want to hold off, or at least they were having some problems a while back. Cleaning solvents were ruining the sight and the company didn't stand behind them. I tried to get some of their sights to buy and test when I first heard about them but they were just getting started(pistols) and didn't seem to care if I showed interest or not. Maybe things are all peachy now, but til I see some long term use, I'll stick with what I'm using.

What I see/read is brightest or most easily seen for tritium is green followed by yellow.

For fiber optics I like green in low light and red during the day.

Yea, I was that test case with the sights being messed up.

I have ghost ring night sights now, perfect for self defense, very fast target aquisition. :D
