    I'm looking to upgrade the stock sights on my Citadel with some night sights. Can't really find the exact answer. Looks to be Novak cut, but is there anything unique that I should be aware of when ordering?

    I have a Citadel myself and I seem to remember reading something about Novak sights being the proper ones for replacement but I can't find where I read it. I can't seem to locate the box and manual for it right now, either. I will spend a little more time looking for it in the morning.

    pics please. The rear sight cut should be a novak cut. If the front sight is dovetailed into the slide you will have to find out the angle and width. for example my hogslayer takes a BM-1 rear sight cut and a .330X65 degree dovetail front sight. Some are .300X60 degree some smaller still...

    Was it the Novak sights? I am still unable to find the box and manual that came with mine!

    Did everything work out on the installation? Which sights did you get? Make/model? Where did you get them?
