Prefered night sight brand?
Just curious as to what you guys think are the better brand. I'm prepping my nightstand gun (SP2022 9mm) for a suppressor, and need suppressor height sights. My 320rx has Siglites and they seem rather dim.

I'm not sure what type of suppressor height sights they have, but if you want good, basic tritium sights (3-dot) without other bells and whistles (fiber optics, luminescent/glowing rings), I recommend either Meprolight (eg. Tru Dots) or Trijicon (the basic ones, not the HDs).

Trijicon HD's are not "suppressor sights", though they are a little taller than most - I'd call them medium height. They work fine on my carry gun with no can.
They also work will with a Silencerco Odyssey, as the eccentric design has the can't top surface bisecting the front dot of the sight, as you can see in the picture. P229R 40, DA/SA:

Considering suppressor height sights, I don't believe there is a large assortment to choose from. The key here, to comment on your 320rx apparent dim tritium sights, is that from the manufacture date, they will start dimming for about 12 years usable illumination. The longer they sit in a warehouse, or on a pistol in a warehouse, the shorter their usable life.
If I were you, I would be more concerned which lamp (dot) style you prefer during daylight operations.
These are the only examples I could find of suppressor height tritium sights, from AmeriGlo, Trijicon, and Sig Sauer.
