May want to STICKY this one, and/or add it to the main menu with Steyr M Manual and Parts Diagram.

Thanks!!!

I am ashamed to say I still cannot get a consistent sight picture. My friend just bought a brand new USP 40 Compact and I shot 5/5 DEA dots at 12 yards. This is something I have a hard time doing with my M9A1. The sights really put the voodoo hex on me.

Hopefully this will help.

I am embarrassed to say that my 3 game-gun Steyrs have fiber optic posts and notch rear sights, and the carry/house gun has 3 dot night sights. Just put a fiber optic on the most recent purchase, last night.

How easy/hard was it for you to get the sights changed out?
Did you do it yourself, as it sounds like it from your post.
And hows about a picture please. I think you had posted one before, but I dont see it now.

Alright, dern it. I'll try to get around to taking some pics. After all the work of shooting pics, loading onto comp, cropping, loading onto website, I expect to hear, "Why yes, it looks remarkably similar to that shown on the XD picture." Because, a Dawson fiber optic sight for an XD that is placed in a Steyr DOES look very much like a Dawson fiber optic sight for an XD that is placed in an XD.

No, wait! Thru the miracle software app known as "Microsoft Paint", I have created a work of art sure to satisfy all, without the tedious need to set up camera, backdrop, lighting, get in the gunsafe, download, upload, etc. Behold the wonder:

Now, is that not the greatest thing since a syringe tube of TW25b, or what? I tell ya, sometimes I even astound myself. If you want to throw coins (or tomatoes), send them to my agent BigTaco, at BigTaco, c/o Swedish Gay Porn Shop and Delicatessen, 940 Bubits Rd, #MA1, Cedar Falls, Idaho.

Best,

Ben

I believe that you can buy plain black fixed sights from PT/MMC in sets or as singles. My set ups are PT rear sight and a Dawson fiber optic front blade that is made for XD. I do not modify the gun at all. I do have to fit the sight by removing metal from the bottom of the sight. This unvolves laying metal file down on a bench, and rubbing the bottom of the sight's dovetail on the file. I think I removed at least .020", just be careful and test as you go, and expect to "file fer a while". The .180" height works with the PT rear sight on my .40s in all ammo, I needed to go to the .205" height for my 9mm with 147 gr ammo. You could probably send it to Dawson, but they take 6-8 weeks to get to stuff.

So far as I currently know, there is nothing that will fit the rear sight dovetail in the Steyr, and no way to chop an existing rear sight to work. I think PT is the only option there, maybe Trijicon

HTH,

Ben

Ben, we really do appreciate all your hard work.

And remember, no good deed goes unpunished!!!!
