My relatively new Para 1911 came with an offer from Para where they'll install tritium sights on the gun at the factory for $99.....
Anybody use them? Like 'em? Worth $99? :thinking:

(I found Trijicon's tritium sights for 1911's on Midway at $85)

Thanks for the opinions.....

Worth every penny.

Some say an armed confrontation is more likely to occur at night. You should use every advantage you can get.

I'd do it.

Heinie Straight 8's are also nice.

I've found that dot colors and styles are highly personal...What works for one may not work for another....Kinda like recommending a color on a new truck

Find some you like and try 'em...If they don't work for you.... get a different set and keep working with it till you are happy

what he said. "worth every penny" three of my 1911's have novak extreme duty rear sight with a dawson precision front sight. That front sight really lights up when you bring the gun up. They are a great improvement over the stock ones. The money will be very well spent on the upgrade.

Thanks guys, I'll pull the slide off and send it back to Para.....it'll take them a few weeks, so I'll have to shoot it at least one more time first. :0023:

That is a VERY good deal, worth every cent. If you choose NOT to do it, we can pull the slide off my RIA, put some tape over the slide flats, and send it in with your registration info.... Just a thought...

I have Tritium sights on my Glock, Ed Brown 1911, and my old Pro CDP Kimber. All are worth the $$.

Neck did you send your slide to Heinie to get the sights installed? if not who do you use to do them? My trijicons are abouot 10 years old and think I need some new ones they just aren't as bright as they used to be
