hello -- I have a p226 with a rail and the nite sights are dim but I cant read the lettering on them -- do they usually come with 6/8 sight combo ? also the same question for a 245 ? thanks !
|That's just the |
It depends on the what cartridge the gun is chambered for; 9mm/357 get 8/8, 40 and 45 get 6/8.
My 2010 P226R .40 has 6/8 Front/Rear.
FWIW, here's some random sight number info:
1) My P320 Compact 9 mm uses the same numbers as my P229 .40 8/8. Different caliber, but about same slide length.
2) My P320 Full Size .40 uses the same numbers as my P226R .40 6/8. Slightly longer slide on P320
3) Replaced Sig sights (P239, P229, P226R, P320C, P320FS) with Heinie SlantPro. Heinie catalogs them by Sig Model only, with no mention of caliber.
4) Sig CS told me that the P320 line uses the same sight numbers as classic P-series equivalent slide lengths.
Occasionally, we'll hear about a Sig that doesn't follow the sight number rules. Never figured out why though.

sorry -- the 226 is 9mm
Nipper, if your still around, did you change the front sight on your 229 .40 to an 8 or did it come that way. My 229 .40 has a 6 front and an 8 rear.
+1 especially if you are in the middle of the weight range for 9mm if, you now have an excuse to reload to absolutely tailor the ammo to the gun if you have the sig sight pusher for installation you can also tweak the wind age.
