That's a good question. I don't know if they are different because of the wider rear of the guns with red dot cuts, or because of the longer slide. Best bet is to reach out the Night Fision.

Well, I have suppressor height front sights on my SFX and EC from Dawson Precision. They are the same sights as far as I remember. Since they use the same optic mounting plate, I'd assume the rears are the same too but don't have them handy to check.

I do have suppressor sights from NF on my SA Mod 2. I don't shoot it a ton so I don't really know what kind of review I can give. The are suppressor height. They are sights :)

They aren't. The ones for the SFx and SFL are wider, since the rear of the gun is wider due to the red dot cut. But the SFL is standard width, so that's why I wasn't sure if the front sight was taller or shorter.

Not sure what you mean. The rear sights for my EC are the same width as the SFX.

Those are stock sights, the EC and SFx share the same width because they have the red dot plate. Night Fision rear sight for SF, SA, etc. is roughly 1/2" wide. The rear sight listed for the SFx/SFL is close to 5/8" wide.
I guess I'm not following. That's what I originally said and you said the SFX and SFL are wider. The person above was asking which sights would fit the EC and I said the SFX ones. Is that not correct?

Yes, the base of the rear sight is wider. But I suggested they contact NF directly, since they don't list the EC for either. Would make sense that the set for the SFx would be the best option, but since they don't list the EC, best to contact NF directly for confirmation.

I'd just get the ones for the SFx. It's the most logical option since they are the same width. I had a set for my SFx and threw them on my EC the other night. Haven't been to the range yet, but with my laser trainer at home, no issues.

Additional sight pusher for your consideration: Lyman Accusight Sight Pusher. Well made, priced about the same as Wheeler, good company. I have used this on Springfield XD sights, which are notoriously hard to remove, Kimbers, S&W Shield. I soak all sights on slide in Kroil overnight. The XD's have a small groove under the sights, which acts to lock them tight. I remove the little wing handle that comes with the pusher, and use a ratchet handle for better control. Sometimes when the sights are locked in tight, apply steady pressure and they will POP! after that, add a little more Kroil around the edges and off they come. As mentioned previously, most pistols are Left to right off, Right to left on. Waiting for TFX Pro's to be made for my Caniks. Like the Fiber Optic/Tritium combo.

Hi thanks for the info however I guess I have a dumb question maybe.
I searched this thread for the terms "Mete" and found nothing referencing this.
I only at this time own a Mete SFx
Are all of the dovetails (assuming all Caniks use dovetails) cut the same, front/rear?
Looking in the thread I see mentioned of several models yet at certain sites
like Night Fision I do not see mention of the Mete but the closest is the TP9SFx.
Does the TP9SFx share the same dovetail as the Mete SFx?
I want to obtain some front/rear suppressor height sights.
Thanks for your help
