P6 Sights questions Login/Join

I am looking to swap out the sights on my P6 when I send it for refinishing. It has a #8 front and #7 rear. Someone told me that they German's go for a different sight picture for POA/POI. Is that true and if so, what sights would be appropriate for 3-dot sights?

When you say "3-dot sights", are you referring to night sights? You may have a problem finding anything other than 8F/8R or 6F/8R sets in night sights. 8/8 is normally prescribed for 9mm and .357Sig, and 6/8 for .40 and .45.

Overheard at an actual match:
"Tapers! Come on, guys, we need tapers!"
"No, my name's Gonzales."

Are you sending it to Sig for the refinishing? Do you intend to use the Sig OEM 3-dot whites?

If you are sending it to Sig, their only two sight options are Siglites or their Tru-Glo option. You can't send them non-Sig sights, since their policy prohibits installation of non-Sig sights provided by the user. I don't believe they will reinstall non-Sig sights either if slide work is done. Like it or not, that's their policy.

If you want Sig to install Sig 3-dot whites, I'd call Sig CS first for details. They can also tell you what sight numbers will be used. Presuming they are available for the P6.

Again, if it's going to Sig, don't buy non-Sig 3-dot whites, since they won't install them.

I have sent five Sigs to them for slide bead-blasting. I let them remove the old Sig OEM sights, bead blast and then I installed the new Heinie sights myself when the slides were returned. They did an excellent job and each order took less than two weeks round trip.

I assume you mean CCR.

Have you actually fired your P6? Were you satisfied with the point of impact? If yes, you had better stay with the same sights. You will not find that combination for sale anywhere. Sight sets sold now are either 8/8 or 6/8 depending on caliber, as JAFO stated.

I do mean CCR. Yes, I fired it and found the POI to be low using the sight picture that I am trained to see. I was told that the German police were trained for a different sight picture and that's why it would hit low.

Then a commercially availble 8/8 sight set may work for you. It will raise your POI by approximately two inches at 25 yards.

That should work. Who makes and sells them?
