Ruger SR1911 45acp Sight upgrade

My apologies if this subject has been brought up before. I just purchased a SR 1911 Commander size 45acp (steel) and would really like some ideas on upgrading the stock sights that come on the pistol.
Fiber optic front may be good but not required. Pistol used as a nightstand pistol as well as shooting at local range
Thanks

I sent my LW CMD to Novak to get their nite sights installed. I like the pistol so much I didn't want to deal with the broken front sight down the road and wanted nite sights. Novak was good to deal with.

Ruger SR1911 45acp Sight upgrade

Thanks for the good ideas and info. For now I have blacked out the rear sight (2 white dots) and put a dab of neon orange on the front. Vastly improved but I am sure that some more sophisticated sights wouldn't hurt at all

Thanks again

Back in 2012 my front sight fell off.
Brownells got me squared away with the right Novaks and a local Smith installed and sighted them.
It's been fine ever since

I picked up a set of truglu night sites from Amazon for $60 but the front site did need to be filed down slightly to fit.
