Whatever works best for you. I really don't have a preference, as long as I can can get a good sight picture.

I went with green up front and orange in back on my P220. The green is a nice pickup but I wish the rears were a tiny bit brighter.

There are threads out there on this topic. Lot of science out there on which colors at best.
Personally, not a big fan of night sights. Rather have a nice lights to illuminate the target on my HD guns as opposed to illuminating the sights. Think it's critical to know what may behind the target in the dark as well.
Otherwise, for range and such, prefer a red fiber optic.

Plain white 3 dot sights. Anything else should be illegal.

Shhh...don't give them any ideas.

What is the intended purpose of the gun? I don't think anyone who shoots a lot likes 3 dot night sights.

I shoot a lot & I love 3 dot sights. The Sig night sights work great.

What ever works best for you. Orange and red flare so you will never see them on my firearms. All black works best for me

This is a very personal thing as everyone's eyes pick up on things differently. I prefer a plain black serrated rear sight with a green or yellow tritium front. I also prefer the front sight to be as thin as possible. Mine are .125" wide and I haven't seen too many tritium front sights thinner than that.
