    So I got a Citadel a month ago, I still can't find the right replacement sights . I'm looking for the Trijicon HD sights. I have gone to at least 10-12 LGS's and can't get a straight answer on the ones that will fit. Half of the gunsmiths are telling me that they just have to take them off and measure them because there's three types of Novak cuts out there. Then I'm stuck paying their retail price on the sights, ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1392565640.734237.jpg which is $50-60 more than internet prices. Not to mention $90-120 to put them on. Does any one have a Citadel with the Trijicon HD sights, and what model number actually fits the closest. I'm aware that it will still take a little bit of gun smithing to get them to fit.

    just send it off to trijicon and have done with it.

    just tell em what you want and they will install the appropriate sight for you and it will work no mucking around. i would start by contacting trijicon customer service.

    I bought a fiber optic front sight off Fusion Firearms website, took the sight and the slide off my Rock Island to a local smith and had it installed.

    Trijicon wrote me back and said they don't make sights for it yet. They said they will add it to the parts request list to make in the future. B.S! They said that Citadel has the only Novak cut of its kind. That sucks! No one makes them

    Least you didn't waste money going to gunsmiths...

    Least they took the time to explain why which helps you in not ordering from other vendors.
