Trijicon Night Sight Orange Inserts

Anyone own a set of Trijicon sights with the orange inserts? I want a set of night sights for my M&P, and sort of like the idea of bi-tone colored sights. However, according to their site it goes green, yellow, orange for brightest to 'weakest' and I'm wondering how the orange inserts hold up as far as brightness goes?

My orange rear sights have not held up well at all. Wish I had never bought them. They are barely visible and I have had them only three and half years...

I will be stick with all green...as the eye is most sensitive to the color green.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.

I suppose I'll also amend this to if anyone has input on the yellow inserts as well

Trijicon now offers their 12-year warranty on both green and yellow inserts because they are the brightest. They only offer a 5-year warranty on the weaker orange inserts.

I have a set of the Ameriglo hack sights for my Glock 26 and am quite happy with them.
The rear sight is black and the front sight has an orange outer ring and the center is green tritium.
