Default Newly Acquired Pistol

Just picked up a Nearly New Ruger P90T. Only paid 290 out the door for this beast. Let me just say first that I love the two-tone style of this pistol. It really stands out.

I have already decided on an immediate upgrade for the weapon...Night Sights. Now I'm pretty sure I want to go with Trijicon, but I have a question. Will all the sights designed specifically for the P90 fit my P90T? I didn't know if there was any difference between the two styles?

And also, is it hard to remove the fixed sights on a Ruger? Or do I need to take it to a professional?

I haven't posted in a while, but it's good to be back. I know I can always count on valuable information from the members of this forum. Thanks guys.

Good question. As I don't have a sight pusher I would take it to a smith and have it done.

I had a P89 for a long time and I changed out the sights. If I remember right, the front is pinned in and the rear tapped out fairly easily (might have been a set screw on it as well)...

Congrats on the new pistol. Trijicon produces excellent sights.

If you would like to keep the original sights maybe your gun is a good candidate for something like this:

it costs less than twenty bucks and there is enough for several pistols if you have some around which need some attention, another thing is since the phosphorescent sights are shaped around the notch on the rear sight the target acquisition is tight and is a lot easier to group some holes at some distant, I personally prefer this type as it easy on my eyes, by the way this is a Kel-tec PF9 and the sights are from glow-on.com, here is the same pistol with just the front night sight:
