I ordered my XD .40 sub compact with night sights from the factory. They are Trijicon brand, which have given me great service on other pistols. A great option for low light self defense.

I guess I'm the only one who perfers to have a laser over NS anytime. I put a set of CT LG-448 on my XD40 Service and it is sweet!!!

I have a set of the factory Trijicons on an XD-9SC, and they have performed well. But, be advised, the factory night sights are manufactured by Springfield Armory, utilizing Trijicon tritium vials - they are not the Trijicon brand sights.

The Trijicon brand sights have white outer ring surrounding the tritium vials, presenting a slightly larger dot in the daytime.

The factory night sights, from what I have read from numerous sources, seem to have a higher rate of dissatisfaction from problems like dislocating vials and vials going prematurely dark.

On my XD-40 service I recently had Truglow TFOs installed, and I am very pleased with them as well.
