I just put them on a SP01, and quickly determined that I've been missing out.   Super fast target acquisition.  I'm buying more.
Any chance of you posting some pictures?

Did the same and 3 out of my 4 have them now.

I've done the same and placed an EZD set on an SP01.  It's a great sight setup.  But when holstered close to your body the rear sight does poke at my side.  I'm not wide but i'm not the thinnest either.  I typically use OWB concealment holsters, and tend to draw close to my body.  If you don't mind shaving the sharp edges down that may help.

I've seen Dawson has a concealment set that looks like it may have smoother edges.  Other than that i've been contemplating sending a slide in to have them mill it for a Novak cut sight.  Even a 10-8 rear sight which seems to have sharp edges doesn't tear me up when i'm drawing my 1911.  But it may be because of different slide profiles.

I ordered the exact same sight set for my SP-01 and 97BD!  These have been awesome!

Yeah, I’d like someone to comment or post some pictures of the Dawson concealed sights. That should be the answer to the sharp edges.

Ive been thinking about buying a set for my compact  but im courious with the way the EZ/D 9-40 rear sight comes all the way to the back of the slide does it allow a person to pull the OEM hammer back manually without any problems ??
I have a SP01 Tac. and the factory rear sight is flush with the rear of the slide maybe even a slight over hang and when i try to cock the OEM hammer my thumb is hitting the sight and not leaving much to get a grip on with the small round OEM hammer.....

With a factory hammer installed the EZD sight do make it harder to manually cock the hammer. I have race/comp style hammers installed in the CZs that i have with the EZD rear sight and this remedies the issue. If this is a significant concern there are a number of sight options that to not overhang to the same degree. Another option is to install a hammer with a different profile that is less effected by the overhang of the rear sight.


Here is a reference picture for a comp sight with a factory hammer.. While the sight pictured is a CZ custom option it is similar in its overhang.

Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)
