I'd like to upgrade my factory p2ksk sights for low light visibility. I want to stay away from the Luminova sights and stick with Tritium. Just curious if anyone has experience with both the Trijicon and Meprolight Tru-dot sights, what differences might exist, and which they prefer to use.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the replies gentlemen.
JodyH: Why blackout the white on the rear dots? Do you find it helps quicken acquisition of the red front dot?
This might be little out of topic, Since HK45/45c is assembled in USA, Why don't they comes with the night sights?
Only thing i can think of is its cheaper to put standard sights on them.

I know that the half-life of Tritium is no different regardless of whether it's in Trijicon or Mepros, and given that the phosphors in each company's sights aren't limiting, the fluorescence should be about the same. However, I asked my initial question because radioactive decay begins the second a Tritium isotope is born. So, if one company uses Tritium for it's sights that is several years old, or ships sights that were assembled several years ago, the sights won't last as long or be as bright as those from a company that uses fresh tritium or is shipping newly manufactured sights to customers. I just wanted to know if anyone had noticed their sights becoming dim sooner than expected, etc...
I have Meps on my P30 and Trijicons on my USPc and don't really have a preference one way or the other to be honest. The trijicon lamps seem to be a hair smaller but more crisp/focused/sharp than the Meps. Both sets seem about equally bright. The white ring around the front lamp on my Trijicons wiped off when I was cleaning the gun one time, kind of a bummer but oh well. Next time I will most likely spring for the Heinies.
