LOL! Actually I might agree with you a tad bit on any plinking gun, fancy sights are overkill. However in this case the S&W 325NG Night Guard has long been discontinued and the few that come up for sale are a bit pricey. Almost every Night Guard I've seen for sale has different sights installed, some Trijicon, few fiber optics, one that I saw for sale had a gold bead. Like the Smith & Wesson guy said, these NGs came originally with the OEM XS night sights.Never figured out why anyone needs fancy sights on a hand gun, especially night sights. If you are going to use it for anything other than plinking, you'll never use them anyway.
Only revolver I have and sort of optic on is my 44 because I hunt with it. Everything else has conventional sight blades front and rear.
I consider all of them as nothing more than a gimmick.
I like original in my guns, woman and beer...so my 325NG gets a XS sight re-installed..
