One question though, Why did you go with a fiber optic in front, but tritiums in the rear? FO is great in day/low light shooting, but doesn't do much in very low or no light situations. I have FO on my longslide, but it doesn't do much after dark. Tracy
Trust me, NOTHING does you any good after dark, except a flashlight. Doubt me? Go shoot your gun with tritium vials IN THE DARK. (The only exception is where you encounter a semi-illuminated target and your position remains dark. RARE, to say the least.)
This will teach everyone that there is no such thing as "nightsights". A gold bead, or a very good FO sight will give you any advantage you could ever use in low light. Past low light, grab a flash light, or your night vision monocular.
Having personally tested all three, a good gold bead is every bit as good as tritium. The only reason I can see to go with tritium is that it's more readily available and usually cheaper than a custom gold bead.
In the case of using night vision, tritium does
get the nod. The dots are every bit as visible through night vision as is the gold bead and I have never seen gold bead rear sights.
Very nice pistol, proudpapa. I hope she lets you shoot it occasionally. :tongue:
