Why not just purchase one with a factory set? Anyways... What 1911 did you purchase?

I like Trijicon or Heine. Meprolite are good too.

Just be careful when removing and installing the rear sight. The PITA that is the Schwartz safety has a pin and hole under the rear sight. You don't want to lose the parts.

Don't be penny-wise and pound-foolish, if you don't know what you're doing you will regret not getting the night-sights on the new gun!

If you insist on installing them yourself......go Trijicon. < that's a period!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

and if you don't feel comfortable or have the proper tools to replace them, let a competent gunsmith do it. the money spent is worth it in the long run.

Trijicons! yes. i have them on a couple of my pistols and they work great and IMO worth the price paid for them.

Heine are very nice, Novak is another solid brand, I use Warren Tactical on my guns and love them. Trijicon puts their lamps in a lot of aftermarket sights so there are a ton of 1911 options out there, most should serve you vey well.
