    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!

    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.

    What kind of 1911 do you have? How they are attached to the gun will dictate what is available for your particular model.

    meprolites are good too, my 1911 has a narrow tenon rear sight and a stake on front so the trijicons were the best for my model.
