I will take any quality night sights for a USPc 357 sig. Got it today, it's not a 40 with a 357 barrel. It's from about 1998 and is unfired other than the factory test shot.

Can anyone tell me what set of fixed night sights will shoot to point of aim via brand and exact model number.

(Otherwise I plan to go with full sized fully adjustable Meprolight's, I called them and they state the will work on a compact with a minimum of filing on the rear sight dovetail (no not the slide half), some great person here also told me they could easily be fitted.

Left and tight adjustments obviously will work, What HKparts and Meprolight can not tell me is will the up and down adjustment of the rear will bottom out before I get point of aim to point of impact.

I know then I could buy a taller or shorter front sight but really do not want to play the game where I buy three different front sights till the rear hits point of aim. (Which is my history with these sort of jobs.)

Any decent fixed night sights that hit the mark of the box will work.

Congrats! I wish I tripped over it... one day I will find the right deal. Sounds like you found a keeper.
H&K installs all NS in the US, since trititum is verboten in DE. HK installs Meprolight night sights. They are the brightest of all NSs. However, many are transition to the Trijicon HDs for the orange outline around the front vial. Myself, I have fallen for the Heine Straight 8s since they are more old school iron sights with trititum vials to help aid. They are easier for me to rapidly acquisition in daylight conditions.
As far as model numbers... just get ones made for the USP Compacts, non suppressor height since there may be a set made for the USP CT.
Shope around as prices vary. Amazon sells from the MakoGroup which is a US dist for Meprolight. However, myself, I had a recent issue of total and blatant deniability with the Mako Group and I will never buy from them ever again as a result. Thankfully, when I contacted the Israelis directly, They immediately stepped up and replace my product with class and integrity and shipped it directly from Israel, arriving quicker than domestic priority cold arrive. So one can buy from MG I guess if one does not mind having to go to Israel for proper, professional, ethical relations should an issue arrive. That said, for Meps sights, I myself have never had an issue with more than 8 sets, yet.
Consider HK customer support or our supporting vendors on this site. We have many good vendors and good deals from them.
I know that the Meps give the same cover as the stock HK white dots. I am not certain how the Trijicons sight picture is.
Flagman at GMP Parts had a thread about different height front blades and the various sight pictures for the VP9 some years back. That thread may have USPc info in it too, I do not recall. But Flagman might be able to help you decide and send them as well once you land on the brand you are wanting.

Hey buddy, I got lucky, Have your tried a 357 sig and 40 barrel in a USPc and was the point of aim the same (or has anyone that reads this. Not doubting you but I have read about 5 posts around that reports a 357 sig barrel in a 40 USPc hits about 4-5 inches low at 7-10 feet. Sounds off but I know that is exactly what happened in my Glock. (Sold the barrel and just bought one in 357).

You know the net, could be BS, VP40's with 357 sig barrels maintain the point of aim and impact. Just really want to hear someone say "That's BS, I swap barrels all the time in my USPc and the sights are on with both."

Heckler and Koch Customer Service.

I don't have a USPc.
My P2000SK 40 seems to hit dead on with an OEM 357 Sig barrel.
P30 40 definately shoots low with an aftermarket 357 Sig conversion barrel.
And although we aren't supposed to talk about other manufacturers guns.
My Sig P229 definitely has different height factory front sights for 40 vs 357.

But the real answer is call HK Customer Service and ask the question.
Good Luck!

I only shoot close range with it.
It's a V2 converted to V1 Light LEM.
Also have twin factory P2000 357 V1 guns as well.
Strangely, in my hands, the SK has less felt recoil (dual RSA) and a better trigger than the P2000s.
Once I shot the SK in 357 the 40 S&W barrel has never been in the gun again - LOL!
I like it a lot :biggrin:

Thought about a USPc in 357.
But these new Stainless USPc 45s @ $699 are singing my song :wink:
