Night Sight Options

My 229 has the contrast sights which I'm finding easier to line up accurately (put the front sight dot over the rear sight vertical bar) compared to the three dot sig-sight night sight setup on my 250. The down side is no illumination in low/no light.
I thought about replacing the front sight on the 229 with a sigsight tritium dot; at least I could pick the front sight up in low/no light. Still leaves the rear sight with no illumination.
Anybody know of another option that would include an illuminated rear vertical bar similar to the contrast sight configuration?

I have never saw a sight with an illuminated bar on the rear sight, but I have saw them with just a 2 dot system. You would just line the front sight on top of the rear dot for sight alignment.

That would at least be closer to the bar dot sight for you.

#338P Sig SlantPro Straight Eight Night Sight Set

This is one of the sets. Im pretty sure that I have found others before, but that would take some searching.

If you don't like the Heinie's, another option is to use different colored rear night sights. I've started using yellow rear and green front and it made a big difference for me.

Was looking at the TRUGLO site and they had that two color system. You feel that works better than all same color three dot?

I've got fiber optic sights on everything but the toilet plunger. Recently I put a set of Tru Glo TFO's on my P245 and fell in love with them. Bright, quick on target, and larger front dot than I've seen with other setups. Pricey, but worth it IMHO.

Just finished looking at the XS site; 24/7 Big Dot looks very interesting. Trying to decide if Standard of Big dot is best for me; got those tired old eyes you know. How about that wide "V" shaped rear sight blade. Anyone have experience with that?
