Night sights for Defender

Looking for some info regarding night sights on a Colt Defender. The pistol has Novak style sights on it. I wanted to switch to Novak night sights. Does anyone know if Colt sells night sights? I had looked at sights at Brownell's but did not know for sure if the Colt sights are the same cut as the Novak sights. I also did not know what height of front post to order for a Defender.

Open to any sugestions.

I know that the Colt custom shop installs Novak night sites on some of their packages. I imagine that if you sent your slide to them that they could do it.

Don't know if they sell the sites outright. I recommend calling them

800 962-2658 press 1 and 1 again.

I picked up a Colt Defender not too long ago. Look at your rear sight, mine said Novak on it. I called Novak, they sent me the sights and I put them on. End of story...
