Hi, I posted this over on the S&W forum but I didn't get much help. I'm thinking i'll have better luck here. My brother has a S&W 457S and he's decided he likes evrything about the gun except for the three-dot sight system. He's old-school and prefers the older front blade/ white outline rear configuration. Are there after market sights he can try or is he stuck with the three-dots? Thanks in advanced for your help.

I'm guessing the sights are Novaks or a similar type. The closest thing to the white outline that I can find is Novaks bar-dot night sights. I think Glock is about the only company still using the white outline, at least on fixed sights.

Millet's have the white outline on their adjustable rear sights.

That's correct. Sorry I wasn't more specific. They're Novak fixed sights.
this gun is from S&W's budget line of semi autos although, I'm not sure if it's the same as a third generation pistol or not. I think the sights are plastic.
