SIG #9 or #10 sights ? Login/Join

I have a late 90s 9MM P226 with milled steel slide and contrast sights. I really like it but I tend to shoot low with it, around 1-1.5 inches at 7 yards with very tight groups. I know it most likely is me. It has 8/8 sights on it. SIG used to make #9 and #10 front and rear sights but I can't seem to find them anywhere auction sites. Anyone know of a place that might still have some? Would SIG have any perhaps? I would like to try a #9 or #10 rear sight if possible. Any other option such as a quality adjustable rear sight/sight that does not hang off the rear of the slide much? I do have the MGW SIG sight adjustment tool.

Anyone have experience with this sight set - LPA Part Number SPR28SS7F assuming I can even find a set?

Thanks for any help or tips!

MGW has a #9 front night sight listed.

Dawson Precision will have a variety of front sight heights, as well as different designs. The sights I obtained from them needed to be fitted to my pistols.

I have a #10 rear you can have, although I doubt it will be much help at 7 yards. My email is in my profile.

Thanks Gary! I received the rear #10 sight, installed it, and went to the range today. It was exactly what I needed. Now I am on target with almost every shot. Thanks again.

25 rounds at 7 yards.
