I have read a couple threads on this, and a lot of people say you can acquire the target faster with different colors. They also said that green is the brightest color - then yellow. The orange and other colors are definitely not as bright as the green and yellow.is there a reason, to get front yellow, rear green or vise versa? Or is this just preference?
I think the consensus is that Meps are brighterSomebody feel free to correct me here; but I think Trijicon is a little brighter at night
Yes, I have heard that Trijicons white paint can come off with powder solvent, so you just need to be careful when cleaning the gunAlso, I think the "white stuff" on the Meps is supposedly more durable than Trijicon when it comes to chemicals. Anybody else heard this "internet lore?"
you couldn't call that comparison valid unless you know the the tritium in both sets of sights is the same age. yours might be older.Somebody feel free to correct me here; but I think Trijicon is a little brighter at night - comparing a friend's with my Meps. However, I think it's because it's a larger diameter vial. That said, the Meps are a LOT easier to see in daylight. Also, I think the "white stuff" on the Meps is supposedly more durable than Trijicon when it comes to chemicals.

My bro had PTs on his duty glock 22, and had a tube fall out twice. Both times they replaced it with a new one for just the charge of one way shipping. After the second time he traded for trijicon.Trijicon or Meprolights? <-Neither
My choice is Heinie Straight 8 or MMC.
I do have 2 USP's with Meprolights and work well, both new sets were acquired in trades, when I spend my own money -> Heinie Straight 8 or MMC.
all tritium *should* last the same amount of time. it's the same element so it's got the same half life. that said, green is the brightest for whatever reason, so it might appear that green 'lasts' longer than the orange or yellow.Ronin,
That is a good point, however I know he ordered his Trijicons about the same time I got my Meps. I doubt there would be more than 2 years separation between the 2 samples. However, like I said, you did bring up a good point and something I'd like to know more about..as in how to order the "freshest" set.
Also, are not green and yellow the longest lasting tritium?
I like my Meps, and I'll probably change out another to Meps in the future. I also have a Big Dot and it glows VERY well too.
