Default Night sights are okay for young eyes but nothing

beats a lasergrip. If you want to know why get their free DVD.
I also enjoy shooting a 36" gong at twilight 100 yards with my 329 S&W.
"bang, bong".

So I've been thinking about getting night sights for my XD9. I'm wondering if after they are installed, can they be removed and reinstalled on another XD model?

You could try glow-on, from glow-on.com. The stuff can be used to enhance any type of sights, I used on my two pistols, a carbine and an old mosin nagant.
At the range is where i like it most, since the lights in that range are so dimm, furthermore, when my mosin nagant gets really hot after 30 rounds or so I noticed the fron sight got really glowing, anyways just my two cents.
Gatopardo

Default night sights

Night sights is a relative term: Optimum target acquisition is the real issue, weather at the range or in a real time situation (the chances are so slim, you'll be needing a fire extinguisher a hundred times more often than a gun to solve an emergency).

Tritium has advantages and disadvantages, light activated phosphorescence also has limitations, but flexibility is something we have to account for, the ability to solve a problem is what counts on an individual basis, check the following shots and ask yourself:Can I get this result with conventional tritium sights or not, and if not what can do this for me?
