MK IV Tactical Front sight suggestions

I’d appreciate any recommendations to replace the black on black front sight for my MK IV tactical pistol. Either white or perhaps a night sight that would be good under any light conditions.

Thank you in advance!

If you would like to try out a white sight with little cost just use some Bic White-Out to color it a flat white .
Depending on lighting conditions I sometimes use a white sight other times I remove the white and use the black sight . The Bic Shake & Squeeze Correction Pen is the easiest to use for sight work .

Mine, I use factory sight (front) Painted with nail polish. White under red. But most times I keep a Red Dot on her.

Thanks for the info. I hadn’t thought about simply painting the front sight. I’ll give that a whirl.

I've been using the Shake & Squeeze with my girlfriend which has been working pretty well also. Sometimes my back will bother me a little but basically it's all good. :-))

The black sight was hard for me to see too. I have put paint, either yellow or orange on some of my firearms that I couldn't get a fiber optic sight for.

For my MK IV .22/45, I ordered the Hi-Viz fiber optic front sight and shallow V-notch rear from ShopRuger.com.
The front sight comes with extra F/O tubes in red and green and a tool to help change them out. The V-Notch rear has a white stripe pointing up to the deepest part of the V.
It's very easy to set the green tube on the top of the white stripe and fire away.

Sandog,
I am also one that likes that setup. I prefer the V-notch rear over the goal rear sight every time. Love the fiber optic fronts to go with it.
