Default Ruger Fire Sights

Anyone every used them? They are offered cheap on the Ruger website. $55 or something. Are they worth anything? Or am I better off spending $150 on trijicon night sights? Please explain why!

Here we go. Fire Sights. I like them so far but haven't had them to the range. They are NOT night sights, but then again neither were the factory ones. These are WAY better than stock.

The best. I think they are Williams. Had them on my GP100, have them now on a Glock. Trijicon for 150? No, unless you are are LE on night duty.

I bought TruGlo TFOs for our Glocks. WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! That is my ONLY complaint about the Williams Fire Sights... no Tritium coating.

The only issue I have with the TFOs is, on mine, only the front sight is illuminated. Others I have seen, front and rear are.

It is for a different application. The black rear sight is there on purpose, to help you focus on the front sight for target acquisition in a stopwatch run drill. The 3 dot Firesights are better for slower, more precise shooting.

The green fire sight are not as "quick" as the red ones. However, the red at times seem to have a "halo " effect. (By this I mean the glow is bright enough that it affects your ability to discern the exact edge of the sight. Have you ever heen out hunting and had someone in the early morning walk up a hill toward you and before they pop into view with their blaze orange you see a sort of orange haze where they are? That is the "halo" effect.)
There is a new sight out that is a combination of "fire" sight and tritium- front and rear. On a self defensive handgun they're great (I've got them on my M&P. I couldn't find any for my Ruger SR9c so went with straight Trijicon). The local sheriff's dept. really doesn't shoot a lot of evil perps, however they do dispatch deer that have been hit by autos. The amount of rounds fired has gone way down since they've gotten "nite sights".
The straight fiber optic sight- I feel I've invested too much until I want to shoot something that is where it has no business. Then I know why I did it.
