Front sight color effectivness depends highly upon each person'e color vision/perception - IOW, different strokes for different folks.
YOU need to experiment, to find out what YOU see best.
As the the FireSights not fitting - FWIW, AFAIK, NO replacement sights are strictly "drop in", i.e. will install w/o a little file work, since just about every one I've ever laid hands on were made a tad oversize so they could be made to fit any rifle with a standard 3/8" dovetail, regardless of production tolerance variations.
