The last wrinkle to work out is sight options. It looks as if my factory options for an Elite MK9 are:

1. Standard sights (bar/dot) front & rear. I like this sight picture for the ranges I shoot (30 feet or less): $991 MSRP. Honestly, the MK9 would not be a regular carry gun. I would mostly wear it OWB around the house and shoot it a lot at the range. For these situations, the standard sights would work fine.

2. Night sights (3 dot) front & rear. I have this setup on other guns and it works fine, and the voice in the back of my head says: "You should always have nights sights on a pistol, or else you will die!": $1115 MSRP.

That's $124 difference between standard and night sights. I can buy the night sights for $80 from kahrshop, so it stings a bit to pay $44 more to have them installed, since I'm used to getting free installation of night sights on new guns.

Are there any other reasonably-priced options? For example, I really like to run a tritium front dot (like a Big Dot), with a standard rear - I have 4 Glocks set up that way, but so far I've only found the front & rear XS sights or Trijicon sights sold as a set, and not just a separate front, which should cost $50 or so. I'd hate to buy a tritium front & rear when I only really want the front (it's easy to find separate sights for Glocks).

Anyone faced this same dilemma or have a possible solution?
Have a MK40 Elite with factory 3 dot NS.
The factory sights are outstanding.
Just buy with factory NS and have a nice day

Full Disclosure:
IMHO the MK guns are too heavy for pocket carry.
On a belt there is no reason not to have more capacity and grip purchase.
Recommend a K9 Elite with factory NS.
