So i follow Canik Arms on instagram. They had posted on their story a set of tfx pros. But unfortunately they were only sold overseas. I contacted truglo about stateside sales and they said they might offer them.

Rumor has it is a S&W front/Glock rear will work. Just gotta get the right height. (Anybody know the correct heights?) Is it a 43 rear sight or a std 17^ sight?

I prefer Trijicon, but they are not making sights for the Canik, and it seeems the tru glo night sights are never in stock.

I just purchased this sight pusher on Amazon:

Once I get it, I'll look for sights again. This is one thing I wish the industry would settle on a common dimension for.
It also appears that finding contrasting color tritium vials isn't an option any more for most sights. I had a WC 1911 that had the old Combat Pyramid sights with green rear and orange front, and that made picking up the front sight so much easier.

I'd contact Night Fision directly and ask. I have an SC but haven't put Night Fisions on them yet since I'm running a red dot. Let us know what they. I don't see why they wouldn't, but you never know.

Tried my Wheeler sight pusher on @Smitty504 's Elite SC and couldn't budge them. He has a set of Night Fision he wants to put on it, but so far no luck.

I know the NCStar Sight Pusher got some bad press on this forum early on and I get it. After all, NCStar has made some real garbage in a variety of products over the years. That said, having used mine (It’s the one that does both front and rear) on approx. a dozen different firearms, I’ve had zero problems removing and installing new sights. I always make sure to lube the press when I use it.

I usually soak difficult sights, but we didn't have time the day I tried to change my buddys sights out. I told him to soak them for awhile and we'd probably have better luck. First time my Wheeler wouldn't budge a sight. But, my guns I also persuade them if need be with a punch. I don't do that to other peoples guns. If it was mine, I'm sure I would of got them out one way or another.

Yeah I've always considered NCStar stuff to be airsoft tier, was hesitant to get the sight tool but its the one ncstar thing I've bought that was actually well worth it. I've used it on a half dozen different guns, and loaned it out to friends a couple times. I've done 2 guns that gave me a little trouble doing a tristar and a surplus cz75, had to clamp the tool down to get enough leverage to break those rears loose, everything else has been a breeze.

Soak how, with what?

I was thinking of throwing an Ameriglo orange M&P sight up front. Thoughts? Anyone had success just replacing front?
I've heard of some having success. I tried replacing just the front on my Elite with a Night Fision, but it was shooting low. I've read others though have replaced just the front sight and were happy with it.

Has anyone had a tp9sf elite slide milled for a ho[…]
