    I just got my S&W 646 and after taking it to the range and putting a few rounds down range I'm seriously considering using it as a carry gun. However, I want to upgrade the sights either way. The all-black target sights are just too hard to line up accurately in my dimly light local range with nice black targets. The good news is this mimics many self defense scenarios and helps bring some of the system's shortcomings to light.

    All I've seen to replace the factory adjustable sights are the Cylinder & Slide Extreme Duty Fixed Sights, which pretty much look like what I want. For a front blade I know tritium sights are available (although I'm having trouble finding them) and I'm waffling between one of those or a HiViz like some of the factory Smiths use. Right now I'm leaning toward the HiViz.

    Experiances? Suggestions? While I'm at it. Holster recomendations (IWB 4:00 carry preferably)?

    Big Dot or Small front, V-express rear with a white vertical line.

    Not sure if they have rear Tritium (what they call "24/7") for your yet or not - recommend calling and asking, as they often have bits available that aren't on their website yet.
