I installed night sights on my XDs .45 today *PICS*
I had a set of Ameriglo night sights that I installed on my XDs .45 today. They are Sig #8 sights. Sigs and Springfield XD share the same sight dovetail, and the #8 Sig sights are the same height as the Springfield "G" marked sights, so your POI won't change.
The front sight is green with a white ring, and the rear sight is a yellow Operator sight. They have a nice profile to them.
I used my new sight pusher tool and removal and install was a breeze. The rear sight was pretty tight, but once it broke loose, it came right out. The front sight was easy to remove. The new sight pusher tool that I got was easy to use, and left no marks or anything on the slide.
Here are some pics of the XDs with new sights installed-
