If the dovetail size is common, why can't I find a compatible set?




Somebody help me out here... I can't for the life of me track down a decent set of night sights for my para. The popular choices seem to be Kimber or Novak cut and neither are what para uses. I've read the sticky and am at a loss. For some reason they think it's a common size but I have yet to find sights for it.

Can anybody link to something they know is the proper size?

Many of the Para Ordnance guns will take our standard Colt sets.

Para Ordnance P10 will take our CA01 set
Para Ordnance P12 will take our CA09 set
Para Ordnance P13 will take our CA10 set
Para Ordnance P14 will take our CA01 set

The limited and dovetail front versions are custom installations, which can be done at Tooltech Gunsight.

What about the GI Expert and the GI Expert ESP and the GI LTC? Para still doesn't list parts for these and neither does Brownells. How about dimensions for the dovetail?!!!!

How about using, say, the Search function, or Google?

davidalyn is correct...I had Dawson Precision install night sights on my PXT 14.45 Tactical. Just be sure to tell them if the weapon has a fiber optic front sight (which requires a different cut than the standard Para dovetail). Dawson installed the traditional front sight so I could break in/qualify with the weapon and ordered a tritium insert for the correct front sight cut, which they replaced at no charge. I'm local LE, and they're supportive of local law enforcement, so I don't know if they replaced it for free because of that or not. Just remember to tell them which front sight cut you need.
