I have Heinie sights on a Glock and I like them. I would like a set of Heinie night sights on my Gold Cup but I don't want to have my slide milled - no not at all.
Does somebody make tritium sights for the Colt w/o the milling of the slide?

Hi I posted a thread about hsi today. Do you have a stainless teel or blue gold cup? is it a gold cup trophy newer model? Do you currently have Champion adjustable sights on it?

I have the blued Gold Cup Trophy. It's new, and has adjustable sights (I don't know the manufacturer and am not at the house so I can't check and see).

I'm actually not a fan of the Heinie sights (well, not as much as three dots), so I don't know whether they have anything available for your Gold Cup or not, but I have heard of gunsmiths milling the sight rather than the slide before. Never seen it done personally, but it might be worth checking into if you want to leave the slide stock.

I think you have Elliason style sights if its a new colt gold cup. Coltsmfg says it comes with Colt Champion Elliason Style Rear Sight. I talked with cahmpion today and ordered new adjustable night sights that they said were on closeout form 07. He gave me a great deal on them and they are the same sight just with tritium inserts. Might be worth calling him. Google champion gun sights for the website and phone number.

XMAN- Do you have a number on the sights that fit my Colt? I checked out the Champion site but they don't mention sights for the Colt.

mine were 860-095, but I know ours are different since I have SS version. Call Vance McCoy there tomorrow and talk with him about it.

Many thanks XMAN. I will call tomorrow.

yours look more low profile than mine. I have a Bomar fit, yours is Elliason. The non night sight model with champion for your sights is 860-301, I do not see Elliason night sights on there, but they may have them.
