Hello all,
Last year I impulse-bought a used SR1911 Night Watchman Commander. I already knew that I didn't care for night sights but for some reason I bought it anyway.

Now I have a choice to make. I really like the looks and feel of this pistol but just cannot use the night sights (in the day time). I am either going to sell/trade this pistol OR I can change the sights.

I've considered changing to a set of factory 3-dot SR1911 sights but what I would really want to do (if I choose this option) is to go to a set of sights like the Tru-Glo TFO's.

Any other sight brand options that would be recommended?? If so can you include part numbers??

Thanks,
BK

I just had a set of TruGlo TFX sights installed on my full size SR1911, but haven't had the chance to shoot it yet. TG13NV1A is the part number for my set.

Look at XS Sites. They will provide you with a different site PICTURE.

I find that the 3 dot idea is fine but most of the time the dots are too small for my tri-focal eyes. The XS Sites use a different configuration that I think is faster and easier to pickup.

I also have the NW and I don't like fixed sights. Ruger didn't have a replacement so I contacted Novak directly and I shipped them my NW and in less than three weeks I got it back with new adjustable rear sight.

I picked up a Night Watchman LW CMD the other day. I'm thinking if I change the sights I will probably go with Trijicon HD. I have them on some of my other guns and for aging eyes they are great. In daylight the rear sight is solid black with a wide U notch. The front sight has the photoluminescent paint which really pops. In the dark you have your traditional three dot green tritium night sight.

Just purchased, ordered, a night watchman commander. Was wondering how the night sights would be in daylight, what are the concerns with them?

No real concerns preference more than anything.

The white outlined tritium actually works better than I thought it would. I have been changing out some of my older night sights to the Trijicon HD because in daylight the front is a lot faster for my old eyes to pick up. If my older sights had the white outline I could probably live with them a little longer but I need something out there for my eyes to focus on.
