    Santa Claus brought me a set of Trijicon night sights for my 1911. Man, are these things bright! I swear, you can see them glowing in any indoor shadow.

    Here is an actual photo (slightly retouched) which simulates what they look like in pitch dark:

    The photo was taken with my Sony digicam pointed at the front sight, no flash, and then I turned up the contrast a little in photoshop.

    Cool. I have a Glock usually on my bedside table at night. I like seeing those three little green dots staring back at me if/when I stir during the night.

    Awesome! I need to get some night sights for mine. Not sure if I should get Meprolight or Trijicon. Are those hard to install, or did a 'smith do it?

    I was told that Kimber dovetails are quite tight, so I paid my local gunsmith $40 to do the swap.

    That's not too bad. I think Glock sights are just drifted in but I'd be worried about hurting something (even moreso on a Kimber!). I should get a sight press tool.
    Santa Claus must understand 80% of shootings happen at night! :D

    I really like the Trijicons, they seem to be very clear and they last quite a long time!

    If you buy the sights at a gunstore with a 'smith, they'll usually put them in for free. I have both meps and trijicons. I have more trijicons, but I actually think that meps are brighter.
