CZ factory sights - happy?
« on: February 08, 2018, 12:13:54 PM »
Specifically folks, I’d like to know if you are happy with your Supressor Ready NS or not and why?  Also, if you like your regular night sights or not and why?  (Anyone have pics of the night sights?). Thanks!

Unfortunately mine did not come with night sights so I will be purchasing the CZ XS night sights on the CZ webstore.

Which night sights are you referring to? I have CZ factory night sights that I purchased from CZ-USA on my P-07 and I find them outstanding for their intended purpose.
I also have nighties from CZ-USA on my 75B and BD and find them of same good quality.

I like the SR sights, the extra height gives a better sight picture, at 7 yards you have like, an extra foot of visibility above the slide

I use the factory TruDots on the P0-09 and Phantom, work just fine for me, but I have only ever used traditional three dot green nights, so I lack a real large frame of reference.

The SR night sights on my urban P07 are very bright. In a pitch dark room you can illuminate stuff if you hold it up against them. I like them alot.

  Took the plunge and yes they are pretty good and they shoot to POA and don't seem too high.

Having second thoughts about purchasing the CZ XS night sights. I am shooting so well with the stock sights I hesitate to change them.

I've had that same issue before.....want a different sight setup but the factory ones seem dialed in for me......

Another trip to the range has pretty much convinced me to stick with the factory sights. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I agree. Sometimes it's best to not "fix things till they break."  :)

I have the factory nights sights on my P10. I like them OK, but I do wish that the front sight was a little bit larger and brighter. However, I think that I'll just leave them alone because the sights are dead on and I shoot the pistol very well as is.

Best regards.

The CZ XS sights are the same size/height as the factory photo-luminescent three dots the handgun came with.  They're machined from barstock instead of being MIMed or cast, and they have tritium lamps.  The front sight is basically bullet proof on the installation.  It's a caterpillar type dovetail, so it'll go in and it's done.  The rear sight could be slightly trickier, as it's a transverse dovetail, and allows for windage adjustment.  What I've found that works well is to use a mechanical pencil and lightly mark the outside edges of the sight on top of the slide, and eyeball a mark in line with the set screw.  Drift the rear sight out, drift the new sight in and line up the three marks.  Put a few rounds down range to verify that the windage is  on, then red loctite the rear.  Loctite 262 (the red hi-strength) as well as the VibraTite equivalent work very well at flowing into joints through capillary action.
