On the NF site, they have option for selecting sight for Sfx and Sfl or "the other Caniks"(essentially), does the Elite Combat have same sights as SFX or "the others"? Sorry if this is redundant. Also has anyone used NF suppressor height sights? Review?

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.

Night Fision doesn't seem to want to respond to my calls or email in regards to my question about the Elite Combat sights.....hmmm.

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.
