Thanks in advance for your knowledge & time.
A popular night sight line is Trijicon's HD, www.trijicon.com . They aren't cheap but the HDs can hold up to duty or harsh conditions if required. I like the orange-green format but many pistol shooters/CCW holders say the all green types work best.
Wayne Novak, www.novaksights.com are well liked too. Novak pistol sights work very well for CCed guns.
Brownells, www.brownells.com offers a few SIG 1911 pistol night sight choices.
From what I know, SIG's factory night sights are good too. You can ship the slide directly to SIG's main shop in NH.
I am a firm believer in night sights and "Dim light sites " might be a good name too.
I second your putting them on your Sig.
I like all the brands so far over the years...I especially like the two color configuration.
TruGlo TFX .....
Id check out the new TFX series from TruGlo.
I'm not sure which style might fit the SIG 1911a1 model but they have a few choices. TruGlo TFXs are available for Kimber 1911s but I'm not sure if those sights could also fit the Spartan .45acp pistol.
I'm not a huge supporter of fiber optic sights but I like the design & features of the TFX series. The sights are coated for extra protection & TruGlo states the new fiber optic inserts hold up to cleaning products, oils, etc.
Cabelas offers TFXs for about $129.00 USD which is around $40-50.00 less than Trijicon HDs.
I may consider the TFX sights for my M&P Shield 9x19mm later this summer.
Rusty & Bexar, thanks! The Spartan has night sights out of the box, but not what I want or feel comfortable with. When I go to bed I leave my weapon on the nightstand. I want those sights glowing all night so I can find it in the dark without problem. Until I find the right sights for the Sig, the Glock 30 fills that role nicely ... so I'm not in a frenzy over it!
I'm going to check out the TFX. Those sound like what I'm looking for. Thanks again fellas!!
No problem ....
I like the FTX concept because the sights can be bright and easy to use quickly in bright sunlight/daylight conditions too.
As many gunners & CCW license holders know, most lethal force events take place at night or in dim/low light conditions.
To add FTX sights or steel Trijicons is a smart move.
Seeing your night sights is good, but are worthless if you can't see what you're aiming at.
I also agree that the sig night sights are mediocre.
I've got flashlights stashed all over the house, including the night stand!
H&K and Sig
You're right, I need them on my H&K as well. The Sig will take priority ... the H&K has a rail with a light attached, so for now, that works. Eventually it'll have night sights too. I think I'm going to try the Truglo discussed earlier on the Sig - and if they're to my liking, pick them up for the H&K down the road.
