do the rear of these have a white bare outlining the tritium or not. It seeme like I read advertisements talking about a white outline on the rear sight too.

Mine did, but that was a couple years ago, and I've since ditched those sights. I still have some on a 1911, and they also have a white bar around the tritium.

How would I know whether im buying the ones with or without the rear outline

I would definitely want the rear outline

As far as I know, they only come with the white bar in back, regardless of whether you get a tritium rear. I don't think they make a rear with tritium without a white bar around it.

If you go with a tritium rear, your only real choice is whether you go with the standard size front or the "Big Dot" front. I shot with these sights for about a year, and I went back to Heinies, as I felt they sacrificed accuracy at 25 yards. However, I like them up close. I also prefer the standard front, as opposed to the "Big Dot".

Order the 24/7, and it will have the white outline rear with tritium. You can order from XS, or you can order from a number of vendors. Here is a link to Brownells.
