    Tritium for now. I have been wondering if the superluminova (used by Rolex, IWC etc for their watches) is now made for night sights.

    Superluminova won't work because you have to expose them to light first to charge it somehow, and the glow only lasts for a short period of time.

    LumiNova charged with flashlight, it really is brighter than tritium but only lasts for a couple of hours

    Nelany I saw your TFOs, they're really nice!

    BTW are you here in the Philippines? Where did you have your sights replaced? I read on XD talk that the XD sights are a pain to replace without the proper tool.

    Thanks!

    I let Forsite in Ali Mall replaced my sight. They have the sight pusher thus it is easy for them to replace it.

    Heinie Slant Pro Straight Eight Night Sights, from my own experience, are not as bright as the Novaks. Here's a set installed on my SIG.
