kimber custom 2 adjustable rear sight?

Im thinking about getting rid of my custom 2 because I cant find an adjustable rear sight. I bought the gun thinking "hey, I can just switch the rear sight out when I get some more money" but no, kimber decides to put their own special kind of cut in their slides. I call kimber and it will be about $300 to send it in, have them cut the slide, and install the sight.

Can anyone help? Im just looking for any rear adjustable sight.

You are referring to the cut for the BoMar sights. I think all guns with those sights have the cut.
Brownells has lots of choices http://www.brownells.com/search/inde...ghts&ksubmit=y

Really? Brownells does have an adjustable sight that will fit your gun.

Are you using the Custom 2 as a target competition gun? I have a couple of guns with adjustable rear sights and it's just not that important. Our three Kimbers are dead on with non-adjustable. You may want to invest in a Gold Match
