I am debating between the fixed mepro Night Sights or the HK Tactical Night Sights. This is for my Standard Full Size USP .45

Would there be any issues looking down the sights with a Tactical since they sit higher than normal on a standard USP?

Ditto, here. Meprolight makes a robust sight that does what its made to, without high prices. There are others out there, but I doubt they are so much better. If it holds up well, shines in the dark, and gives me a 'usable sight picture', then Im good to go...Meprolight works

I'm curious about how the different size sights affect point of aim as well. Where does yours shoot now?

The adjustable MeproLight night-sights from the fullsize USP Tactical 45 will work perfectly well on your fullsize USP 45. Yes, they are taller than the sights on the standard fullsize USP 45, but that doesn't hurt their performance visually. If anything, I think it makes 'em easier to see quickly. They are target-style sights, and as such are an asset for precision shooting. The primary downside to target-style sights is that they are bigger and bulkier, and not as easy to carry concealed.

I just pull the stock adj. high sights off my new USP .45 Tac. and installed the Std. USP sights due to holster issues, don't know how things have worked out as I have not been to the range yet, but I expect it to be OK... I never expect to use a silencer, so I didn't need high sights... They now work fine in both holsters (Leather & Plastic?)
Have a good one...Tater2...

Thanks. That's pretty much the complaint I hear about the tactical sights is that they cannot fit well into holsters. Glad to hear it is more of an asset for target shooting.

Let us know after you take it to the range.
