    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.

    Thanks JaxNovice, I also got a reply from the Phillipines today, they referred me to this thread on another forum:

    Short answer...yes they are Novak cut

    also gave me a dimension diagram for the rear sight:
