Finally managed to find the time for some pics. I'll take the time to make really good ones once I get my new grips (these are too light for my tastes) and my magwell.

Hi Mike,

Sights are Springfield adjustable. This one is not for tactical use, so no tritium (although I might eventually dress her with some tritium adjustable... Hum!).

Here is a slightly better angle on the sights (and they're not black on black this time... I really made those pictures really fast).

The $29 ones from the "Loaded" coupon?

How do you like them?

Hello Mike!

These are actually the sights that came with the gun originally. The model of the Loaded pistol is PX9132L.

http://www.springfield-armory.com/im...9132LLarge.jpg

I like the sights a lot, but they really are good for target only (which is why I talk about tritium adjustable...). Aiming those sights on dark sufaces, even with quite a lot of light, is really hard. The sight radius is 1/4 of an inch longer than the novaks, which seems to make it just a bit easier to aim at longer ranges, like at the 25 yards mark. Another feature I really like about those sights is that they are "click" adjustable, which means that when you adjust the sights, you're not turning a continuous screw, but actually have a positive "click" feedback from the sight every 15th of a turn or so. Makes it easy to note the adjusments you made and to come back on them later. You can then swith from point of aim to under the target, or compensate for long ranges, etc.

All in all, those sights would be perfect if they had 3 little tritium inserts. But eh, you can't have everything all at once, can you?

Thanks for the interest!

Alex.
