View Full Version : sig trijicon novak style sights

October 09, 2017, 10:09
I've been looking at the neat appearing novak angled trijicon sights for my recently aquiered 220.
has anyone here had experience w these style sights or seen a set?
I have trouble with my hands these days and was wondering how difficult the dovetail fitting is.
Over past yrs ive built and done quite a bit w various makes but my hands dont cooperate as well today.
Any input you cam give on these novak styles is much appreciated.
Thanks a bunch guys..

I have a couple sets of Novaks that I'm fond of. One set is on a S&W that isn't as bright as new at 9+ years , but still useful. The other is or was on my P229. I picked it up on Gotbroker for less than $400 and converted it from DAO to DA/SA. Just when I had the thing the way I wanted, my daughter claimed it and I haven't seen it since, but I think the sights are working fine. :confused:

I don't think fitting Novaks to your 220 would be much of a problem, but you can have Novak do it for you to be sure.

I like to tinker, but with this type sight, the old hammer and punch trick may not be the best solution.

I just fitted Novak sights to my Sig 1911. I have a sight press so didn't have to hammer-off the front sight but the rear sight was just a slide-in-place by hand and held with the set screw provided.

I have upgraded several SIG pistols to night sights with mixed success. On several the old sights came out with no issue and the new ones slid right back into the dovetail. On a couple I ended up throwing up the white flag and heading to the local smithy, as those ba$tards wouldn't budge!!

Good luck.

Not exactly a range report but when we went to Chuck Taylor's 2-day course last weekend, I found the rear sight had really bad sharp edges that actually caught and tore my t-shirt when drawing from my holster. I also got a couple deep nicks in my shooting hand.

Easy enough to break the sharp edges but shame on Trijicon for letting these get through their QC.

Pics are what I sent to Brownell's to show what I had to do to make them right.

That being said, the sight picture is awesome. Ability to acquire the front sight in quick-shooting situations is excellent.

We have a night shooting class coming in a couple weeks.

Trijicon emailed to say it will be replaced AFTER our night defensive pistol course on 11 November,

They acknowledge other people reporting sharp edges on the rear sight.
