Night sights for G20SF?

I have a G20SF I bought a few years ago when they first came out. It has fixed factory sights. I'd like night sights on it. Any suggestions? What kind, where to get them done and cost?

Thanks!

I had Trijicon Bright & Tough night sights installed on my 30SF at the LGS for $100. It took about 20 minutes.

I have Ameriglo on mine--they are just rebranded Trijicon. I was always a Meprolight fan because I thought the dots were bigger, but these are plenty bright and visible.

The TruGlo TFOs are a neat innovation. Fiber optic for daytime, tritium for night time. I own one set and like them very much.

However, Trijicons have one advantage that makes them a "best buy" for me:

Tritium's half-life is stated to be 12 years, but I have seen many night sights that were borderline worthless at 6 or 7 years. If you are a buy-and-sell type, that may mean little to you.

If you keep a gun with night sights, they will go dim. When that happens, you can pay for new sights... or you can send the old ones to Trij and they will replace the tritium capsules for $18 each (54 for all three capsules).

Or, you can send the slide to them by USPS Priority Mail for about $6. This will not disturb the zero, and you will not take the chance of damaging the sights (or the capsules) during removal/installation.

I would advise buying insurance on the slide...just in case. Having a frame and a barrel, but no slide...yeah, that would suck.
