    I'm looking for front and rear folding with trintium.

    Looks like $300 for the pair.

    Anyone know of a place that might be blowing these out?

    Thanks in advance

    With tritium? Not likely. Personally, I would skip the tritium rear, and only go with a tritium front sight. The rear lamps tend to be problematic when shooting NTCH (like you should be). You can also get standard front and rear, and upgrade the front to tritium yourself later on - Troy sells the front upgrade kit for about $40, last I looked. It even comes with the tool needed.

    night sights on a rifle are mostly useless IMO. especially rear.

    Thats not your opinion, thats a well known fact.

    The tritium is lower than the tip of the front sight post, so you will have POA/POI issues if you try to shoot at night using the tritium...which 99% of people buy tritium sights never do anyway.

    I agree that rear night sites aren't the best, to bright and just blur with proper shooting technique. To fix the POA/POI issues I went with a Truglo dot sight. Works great, and yes I do shoot at night. It could be brighter but it's certainly better than a black post.

    Stock? any different colors?

    In regards to Troy, yes the sale they had over Black Friday was a big deal and a good value. I picked up a rear folding sight a few months ago and it was worth every penny.

    I picked up a Troy Alpha Rail 13" no sight at 25% off. I could have saved $10 more if I had been aware of the 30% off sale, but either way, it was a great deal. And Troy Customer Service is top notch!!!

    I also agree with the rear sight, generally I would say skip the front also. Buy some fixed Troy sights, cowitness whatever optic you choose and buy a good light if using no optic. With a decent light you will see through your sights no problem and be right on point. Just my take on this subject.
