I don't know about the hiviz sights, however I have factory night sights on my Glock 30. I really like them for low light situations, the bad news is that I have heard that they will need to be replaced in 10 to 12 years.

I know some who are of greater experience and much higher skill level than I am who have moved to a night sight on the front post only. So there is a plain rear sight and a tritium front sight.

It looks like it, SARGeek. I'll divert a bit and say I don't like the Big Dot sights. They're optimized for fast work close in when you're way less likely to be on the sights anyway, and not as good for precision or long-range shooting. We likesesss narrow front posssstssss, yesssss, we likesessss narrow better for all-around use yesssss, my precioussss....

The RMR would provide more versatility and be usable over a much wider range of conditions and circumstances than a laser, yes. Price is an issue for some. The least expensive way at this point looks to be to obtain the RMR separately and send it with the slide to be milled to TSD to mount it for you. Still quite a bit more than a laser, or night sights. Definitely more capable than either or both together, though.
