Which HiViz Sight For My Redhawk .357

I recently purchased a new Redhawk .357 with 2.75" barrel.
I currently also own a GP100 and 3 LCRs .22, .357 and 9mm.
I put HiViz sights on the GP and 2 of the LCRs and they greatly improved my accuracy.
In shopping for a HiViz sight for my Redhawk, I find two options.
1. LITEWAVE™ Interchangeable Front Sight for Ruger Redhawk (model RHLW01) available from AmazonSmile for $30.92
HIVIZ® Shooting Systems | Manufacturing high quality firearm fiber optic and tritium sights » LITEWAVE? Interchangeable Front Sight for Ruger Redhawk and Super Blackhawk Hunter Except the Alaskan

2. Front Sight for Ruger Redhawk with a 4″ Barrel (model RR2009) available from AmazonSmile for $37.74
HIVIZ® Shooting Systems | Manufacturing high quality firearm fiber optic and tritium sights » Front Sight for Ruger Redhawk with a 4? Barrel

Has anyone used both sights and have a preference for one or the other?
Thanks!

I like the HiViz green. I also have those on a couple Rugers.

I like the idea of that litewave with 3 interchangeable colors. I might be trying that if there's no bad reviews on them.

My first concern would be " do the inserts stay in place really well. "?

But thats nothing a dab of silicone caulk wouldnt cure,, IF,, they dont.

They look good.

Good luck. Let us know what you think if you try them.

Thanks, friend.
No other responses so I ordered the litewave with 3 interchangeable colors.
More bang for the buck.
We'll find out how good it is. ...
