    Ick on the factory night sights, had em didnt like em. You will get alot of opinions on which night sights are best. You have merps, trijis, tfo's, ag's ( sorry if I left someones out) and so on. It just depends on what you want and what you want to spend for them. I have the factory N/S on my Pro CDP and that works for me on it. I have the TFO's on my G17 and am getting XS sights for my XD/C when it gets out of layaway. A buddy of mine has the XS on his G23 and they pick up quickly on target. There not for comp but for carry they are nice. Good luck.

    The factory Meps on my G21 have held up fine, and are the brightest night sights I have--including Trijicon and XS.

    I don't holster my G21, and I guess that's where some people have had the front (staked on) sight come loose. Anyway, not a problem here.

    Judy's Trijicons (G19) are also excellent.

    We've retired the XS' for now.

    Next for me--AmeriGlo Operator Yellow/Green.

    We've had no problem with the painted rings on the Trijicons--there's no need to use aggressive solvents on sights--but the Meps, XS', and AmeriGlo's, use plastic inserts for the white "0s" on their sights.

    All of the above are plenty bright, but the Meps win in absolute brightness, possibly because the markers are larger.
