My rifle came with a NM front sight and I had trouble seeing it. I think if I had the standard width, I would have been happier with it. But this was with a regular non-hooded rear apeture, a hooded one would have made all the difference to me.
If you're going to go NM, you might as well do it on both ends, I say.
NM front sight is the same projected width as the black bullseye on NM targets making it easier to center under the bull. If you're a bull shooter (sorry, it just came blurting out!). Otherwise the standard front sight works better for me.
