I use Meprolight night sights on all my Pistols, Shotgun, and Rifle sights that I want night sights on. Way better than Truglo and other types of night sights in my opinion. There light green in day time and bright green at dusk or night time making them really easy to see. Green back and Green Front sights are all I use. Some times the Orange and Yellow not the best in some lights, and they dont seem to hold up as long as the green ones do, but thats your call. You do have to do some gunsmithing to take off and mount the new sights. Just depends on what gun and model youre installing them on what you need to do. There are directions on what you need to do step by step and there not to bad to fallow either. I did the job my self it was easy and I am not a gunsmith. If you plan to change a lot of your gun sights out I would just go and buy the tools to do the job. If it is just a one time deal you can go to a gunsmith I would say a $100 bucks it a big enough budget. A budget for the tools $100 should cover all you need. People have said that they have broke there sights installing them or the gunsmith did when they installed them. That why I do the job my self. I have installed over 10+ sights on guns and have yet to break one. There been a few guns sights that I had to take a few good whacks from a hammer and punch to install the meprolight sights on and there fine. As long as you drive on the very bottom of a dove tall style sight you should have no problem not breaking your sights, and as for drilling holes for roll pins on some front sights supper easy. How I learned was just reading forms and watching videos on how to change sights. Its the same concept from one gun to the next. A budget for the tools to do it your self $100 to $400 just depends on how much you want to spend. A hammer, a few brass punchs, vice, vice blocks, set of small files,and a drill with drill bits will be all you need to change out most sights on most guns.
Pros: Good price. Great sights for all type of lighting condtions
Cons: Does require some gunsmithing to install them
