Thank you very much. I will definitely order a set. I have fired them on other guns and they are very fast!

Just curious, how snug are HK sights? Doable with a drift punch or is a sight pushed called for?

Thank you

I used a sight pusher, just because I don't want to take the chance of damaging the sights or the slide. I went with the MGW HK sight pusher and it worked perfectly...well worth the money.

Trijicon HD's should go on every pistol! I have them on many pistols including 3 USP's and my P30. I had attempted to drift them on one my HK's like I did some of my Glocks but I was having difficulties. Now I have a LGS that will install my sights for $10 a pistol and in 5-10 minutes. I've decided to go that route from now on. You will really like the HD's

If you don't mind me asking, where is your LGS? I'm over by Tampa and I have only found one shop locally that has a site tool to install sites on an HK (and he charges quite a bit). Most shops tell me that they don't see HK that often and to just use a punch...

My LGS charged me $50 to install sights on a 1911, but they required filing and fitting. Do the HD's typically require some fitting?

I always love trijicon HD sights. I have it on all my guns g26, g43, ... The only thing I am not sure is, I am very much hoping I can get a threaded barrel for my HK, in that case everyone recommend the straight -8 night sight. Anyway, trijicon hd, good stuff.

I went the the standard Trijicon on a USP Compact 9mm. Steve Morrison of MARS Guns installed for $35, very happy with them, I was unsure how the HD version would work.

I can't speak to the usp fit (but in the market for sights for mine) but the trijicon hd needed a small amount of fitting on my 45c nothing more than a couple swipes with a file and whil tight they went in fine with the mgw
The Dawson precision on my vpn was a completely different story

I ordered a set for my VP9. I have the Ameriglo I-dot's with the orange front sight on all my other M&P pistols and had a little harder time acquiring the target this weekend with the VP9 because I shoot black on yellow splatter targets on a white background.

How much of a sight adjustment (POA/POI) was needed due to the sights being a little taller than factory?

This, I recommend the MGW universal tool.....which is a million dollars (350), but worth it. HK level of quality in the construction. I will say, there are at times the need to gently, and only ever so slightly fit the Trij HD's to the gun. Mine were a bit of a squeeze on my German HK45 and there's about a millionth ish of material in between my rear sight and slide. Can't tell if it was whatever cement the previous owner used to secure the Straight 8's, or part of the sight. Either way though, they're on there, and I'm not upset at all about it. I'll do my absolute best to take some pictures of what I mean.

If you're going to file it, very, and I mean ever so slight, removal of material with a stone or file. Also favor jacking up the sights over the slide. Might suck at the time......but a slide is much more expensive.

Also this was my first sight install ever, so.....don't hate me. I'm still an apprentice. Also you can't tell it's there unless you look for it in all honesty.


Edit for pictures!
