Fixed rear sight for CZ85 Combat
« on: August 27, 2018, 11:50:26 PM »
Not a fan of the (I think....) LPA rear adjustable sight on my 85 Combat. Any suggestions as to a more robust fixed rear sight? Will be pairing this with a fiber optic front. I am a bit confused as I know CZ uses like a million different slide cuts.



Thanks for any help.

Not a fan of that sight setting up there or should I say protruding up there.  I may be uninformed but on the 75/85 pistols I  am only aware of the pre-B dovetail cut and the later dovetail cut which I recall is smaller.  Very hard to find anything to fit the early large dovetail cut.

There is a thread here showing ALL the 75/85 sight cuts and sights that fit,  but I'm limited using this phone.
You can find "Stuart" is a member here that also shows his CZCustom Phone number.  Call and he can help.

To my knowledge the CZ 85 Combat rear sight cut is unique aside from the Kadet kit. I am unclear on drop in options for the 85c/Kadet sight cuts. I plan on having my 85 combats rear sight cut reprofiled so that it can take the sight of my choice. Another project that i have been putting off for far to long......

Edit:
Here is one helpful thread i found on the subject.

I was able to hammer Shadow sights in. A taller front is required than the Shadow's then. I did lower the rear instead.  Not a lot of rounds on this gun, probably about a thousand, but it holds up.
