So are you saying that the Sig shoots higher? That could a problem adjusting.

Thanks.
I had the same concern, and ended up replacing the front sight with a fiber optic steel-framed SIG/Truglo front sight. The rear night sight is staying. In broad daylight (and I shoot outdoors, weather permitting) it is much better. The night sights come on when it is too dark for targets. If you want the best of both, consider an XPress (spelling?) aka Ashley combo front sight. It is f/o+tritium. these are quick on target in any light but not the most precise.

Where do I find the sights? I normally find things on Cheaper than dirt and I was not able to find them.
Thanks

Try opticsplanet.com

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

Be careful to choose the correct front sight height for your SIG. It is either #6 or #8. The link is to a front/rear set, but you can search for them separately. It appears now to be a f/o+tritium combo.

Same sights I have on my glocks. CTD is looking for them. Do I need a special tool to remove it like I did on the glock?

You can ask the SIG SAUER Pro Shop 603-610-3456 (I got some of my sights there). Some vendors specify the sight height. But don't leave it to chance, it's really frustrating when the wrong sight arrives, I've been there.

You can use a SIG sight tool to be safe, or do a careful job with a punch and a hammer. SIGs sights are not Glocks, they can be tough little mommas. I soaked them in Break Free for a couple of hours before getting to work.

Would you suggest changing both, or just the front?
