Best sights for HD handgun with mounted light

Hi,
I am considering replacing sights on my P220 ST that I use for home defense. I keep a gun mounted light on it and it stays in lock box in the bedroom. On all my other SIGs, I have installed xray sights, which I really like. I'm not positive if the xrays are still the best sights for this HD gun and here's why:

1) for this gun, I do not have to worry about sights snagging on a holster or clothing

2) for this gun, the target might very likely be strongly illuminated, while the sights are not (if it's dark and I'm using the light)

Still, if there isn't a clearly better choice, I like the idea of always training with the same style sights.

The SIG xrays are good in bright light, but the TFX pros are said to be excellent. I chose the xrays over trijicon hds due to the lower profile, more snag-resistant shape of the xrays. This may be a case where any of these would be good, but I am wondering if anyone has found that one sight was particularly useful in combination with a mounted light. Thanks.

Try the light with the stock sights. You might find that you won't need to change the sights.

I have and you're right, I don't HAVE to replace them. I think I'd like a brighter front sight though. The rear is less critical.

wfedwar, have you thought about something like the Burris FastFire? or something similar? Since it is for HD, and not EDC.
