Possible to get a narrower notch rear sight for Kadet?
« on: January 21, 2018, 06:02:33 PM »
I'm feeling the rear is too wide for my liking. Anyone know if it's possible to get a different blade or do I have to replace the whole sight?
Does Kensight make these?


Thanks

I'm not aware of a different blade for the original LPA sight on the Kadet.
I had the right to remain silent...

but not the ability.

Just saw this.  What I do is fatten up the front sight sides with a little JB-Weld, then file it down until I like the clearance on each side when viewing normally.  Then re-zero the gun.  I've also epoxied 0.010" shim stock to each side of the front sight on my P-10C.  If you add some to the top, you can make elevation correction if you need to as well, if it is shooting high. 

I tend to use the LPA sight on the other guns as well, not just the Kadet, so the front sight fattening exercise is typical for me.  This won't work on a holstered gun where the sight rubs the Kydex.  I think you could knock the JB-Weld off pretty easily.  Epoxy and shim stock might even survive that, however.

Thanks Joe! I may end up with a red dot as that's what really works best for me.
Cheers,
