I am looking at getting the compact "Officer's" model, but from what I have read they don't have three dot sights. The factory sights look Novak-like, so I am thinking they are Novak cut. I have emailed and called the factory without answer.

Anyone have experience in what night sights fit on these Citadel 1911's?

Thanks,

-Ed

I know a guy who knows a guy. I'll see if he can get any input.

Novak style sights. So I assume that means they're 65 degree dovetail cuts. I'll post back if I can get a response.

I have the same question, so please post here if you get an answer.
I'm OK with the plain sights, but I do prefer 3-dot, don't turn down a deal on because you don't like the sights.
Thanks in advance!

My buddy says he'll call tomorrow.

Now, myself, I prefer plain black sights.

Thanks Matt, I'd really appreciate it. I just want to be sure I don't have to get any custom work done just to fit a set of Novak's on it.

They "don't know". My buddy is going to try to look at one in person today and see what he thinks.

Ed- The Citadel is the same pistol that Charles Daly used to import. On the Charles Daly Forum that has your answer. Here is the link:
