Kahr night sights?


September 9, 2004, 09:56 PM
Anyone have a Kahr with factory night sights? The Meps on my USP 45 are awesome day and night. The factory night sights on my Para....well are less than visible day or night. I have not been able to get my hands on a Kahr locally with night sights to see for myself.

Sure would like to see them first hand before dropping the extra cash but would welcome any comments from anyone that has tried these.

I have the PM9 with really crappy sights. Dot front and a vertical bar on the rear. I oredered this gun and expected it would come with a 3-dot system, but didn't. I'll be ordering the nite sights in a week or two. Really like the gun.

I've factory night sights on my PM40. No complaints about brightness. I thought enough of them to get a set for my P40.

Would be better IMHO if the front sight was a different color from the two dots in the back.

My used P9 Covert came with Trijicons... Worked just fine for me and they were my first long experience with Trijicons. The Meps have a nice BIG vial, but I had zero complaints with my Trijicons.

The next night sights I will buy will be the XS Big Dots for my CZ and it will probably just be the front sight. I've seen them on a couple guns and have been impressed... assuming one isn't going for benchrest precision.

My PM9 came with the same sights gbran described and I didn't like them either, so I ordered the Meprolight sights from Kahr and had my dealer install them. They went in just fine although he grumbled a lot about how tight both sets were. I'm happy with the new ones.

I have the Meprolights from Kahr too, and they're excellent. I've always prefered them over Trijicon anyway.

still in the box w/ factory grease.....................I thought Trijics were the factory issue NS---mine certainly are!!

Bright as a son-of-a-gun too!!

OK, so are we saying the factory night sights are Mepro's? If so I'm definetly in for that.

Thanks for the replies.

I purchased Trijicon night sights from Kahr and had my local smith install them. I like them. They had multiple brands of night sights on their web page.

Sent Karh an email on Friday and going to call them tomorrow regarding ordering a gun with night sights. With Meps available on the website for $50 I'm thinking it's going to be a better deal to buy a gun from the case and get the sights installed after. Either way I'd be OK with the Meps or the Trijicons.

I've got cash burning a hole in my pocket :D

Just in case anyone is interested here is the reply from Kahr:

Good Morning! The standard Factory Night Sights are Meprolights. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.

Thank You
