    I like the price better, but the tritium is worth the extra to me.

    In my experience with them, the tritium insert fuzzes up the rear sight marker/graphic in daylight, though the nighttime sight picture is nice.

    The lamp in the front sight has no impact on the daytime sight picture, IMO, and serves well to point the gun in the dark.

    If I were to buy these again, I'd prefer the standard rear sight (without the tritium lamp) and a Big Dot front sight with the tritium insert.

    Actually, I much prefer AmeriGlo Operator sights to the XSBD set up, but that's me! :dunno:

    Hmmm, Nice catch. I never really liked the look or wanted XS, but I bought a used G19 with them, and I was hooked. I don't need Tritium, so these would be a great option for much less.

    My thoughts exactly when it comes to XS pistol sights.

    I have XS small dots without any tritium on my G-26. They're alright. The guy at XS said he didn't recommend the plain white Big dot because it was such a big white blob it made aiming diffucult. But then again, Big Dots ain't really for aiming.

    Where did you get the small dot without tritium? Can't find them anywhere.

    And, does anyone have any reviews on these non tritiums?
