Has anyone used the Trijicon front and rear night sights? How did you like them and are there any advantages of using them over the regular sights in the daytime? I hate the cut aperture on my ARMS 40 and was thinking of swapping it out with the Trijicon sight.

Also, were is a good place to buy them?

Yes I have them on my SP1. I like them. No advantages over regular sights in the day light.

one thing to consider is that the trijicon front post will be wider than the standard...at longer distances its a little trickier to shoot accurately with the irons. the trij is still a lot smaller (thinner) than the other brands though (especially that Ashley/XS monster dot)

how about PT night sights with vertical tritium insert?

the PT "look" thinner but i haven't physically handled them....then again the Trij's don't really look thick until you put them next to your standard front post.

If I also have an Aimpoint ML2 mounted on the rifle with the Trijicon front and rear sites, will I see more than one dot thru the aimpoint? If so, is it distracting?

I have both but haven't tried that combo. I serously doubt it will distract you much. In the first place you aren't going to pick up on the night sights unless it's really dark, and they are green whereas the Aimpoint dot is a bright(er) red.
