A fella took Chuck Taylors Urban Carbine class and had this to say

4) For speed and accuracy, there may be good reasons to consider an
ACOG night sight, as they really work slick in low light. On the
other hand, if you have good eyes and feel you practice enough to be
somewhat accurate, skip the extras and learn to use the flip up night
sight built into the gun.

As to the night sight comment, yes, I was vaguely referring to the
trijicon type night sights that when put on in place of your regular
sights can provide a robust yet effective solution to low light
shooting without adding extra mass or complexity to your gun.

I wish I could afford the trijicon optics but I think there a bit out of my range at the moment

Do you have diffrent colors or just the green?

Kind of a reddish orange, but it only lasts 5 years or so and not really bright. Yellow and green have the same lifetime, maybe 12 years, but the yellow is much dimmer. I've got yellow on the rear and wish they were a bit brighter.

I've been using a Trijicon front post on a duty carbine for several years and would not go back to regular irons for night work. I don't see a need for the rear Trijicon, which ends up being far too close to your eye to really use well. Of course, an EOTech or Aimpoint is far superior.
