    I have a DW Guardian 9mm and want to change the sights out to a plain black rear and hi viz front. What do you all recommend?

    I prefer gold bead front and black U-notch rear, but I have some with black square notch rear and they're nearly as good. I like 10-8 rears, have a couple with 10-8 fronts and a few with custom fronts.

    Send your slide to Lou at Business End Customs for his black rear and white ball front sights. You won’t regret it

    I also like the Straight 8's, but really REALLY like the XS standard dot! While not a target sight by any means, they are FAST, and I have no problems shooting groups at 25 yards with mine. I probably have 6 or 8 1911's set up with them.

    I also have 2 of my EDC's set up with the XS BigDot. Nothing faster in my opinion!

    I'll second that. I've got XS night sights on a bunch of mine. Fast combat sight. The night sights are great. If you don't want to install them yourself they will do it. Great customer service. Not Target sights there made to make a fast hit at combat ranges like 10-20 yards.

    For me high visibility front is a Fiber Optic. I prefer a flat black rear. Dawson Precision makes good sights. I have some. My CZ's have Fiber Optic fronts with flat black rears from the CZ Custom Shop. I like the sights from the CZ Custom Shop better than those from Dawson Precision.
