Both the front and rear sights of Night Fision Costa Ludus sight set feature serrated rear surfaces to reduce the glare. Additionally, there are serrations on the front area of the rear sight that provide a more grippy surface for one handed slide manipulations. The front sight is a Night Fision Perfect Dot which consists of a tritium insert in a fluorescent sleeve, and is available in three color options of the latter: orange, yellow or white. The rear sight has a tritium insert in a form of a horizontal bar that underlines the front sight dot in the sight picture. The rear sight is also available in long and short sizes with the short one being compatible with MOS slides. Overall, with two rear sight sizes and three front sight ring color options, there are six possible combinations of the Night Fision Costa Ludus sights.

    I don't like those sights at all. In order to avoid shooting too high or too low, they require judging how far the horizontal line sits beneath the circle on top. After all, in the dark you won't be able to see if the top of the front sight is level with the top of the rear sight, so you'll have to rely on judging the distance between that horizontal line and the bottom of the circle above it.

    With plain old three-dot night sights, it's easy to see at a glance if the dots are all level with each other, in which case you know your gun isn't tilted up or down. And it's easy enough to see if the middle dot is centered between the outer two dots as well.

    I had Night Fision sights on a SIG 365, but the vertical part of the front sight popped off when a gunsmith was installing it--it was a very light tap, and you could see it looked like the front vertical part is just glued on a stem to the base. He was amazed--said he had never broken a front sight before.
    I asked the company if they could help, and the best they could do was offer a 20% off coupon for their website, so I paid it. Later I realized that I still paid more than if I'd bought the front sight at an online retailer. Thanks for nothing, Night Fision.
    Now the packaging tells you to be very careful installing them as the fronts break off so easily. These are more fragile than plastic Glock sights in my experience.
