Heinies. I very, very much prefer the Heinie sight picture. For a long time I used Novak, but now I can't stand them. They feel too busy. Meps are very simple with the tritium inserts. I actually find I prefer the simplified figure-8's, as well.

I've tried other colors, but I find nothing outdoes green.

If you can handle non-tritium rear sights, the 10-8 sights are great, too.

i like how the meprolights are a nice big white spot to pick up on in daylight. that's just me though.

1 week turnaround for Heinie's: post office to front step. Just got a slide back today.
