Team Match II rear sights

I posted a short note about my new (used) Kimber on another forum. One of the replies said I may need to change the rear Novak style sight. So far no explanation as to why. Since I am new to Kimber, I sure would appreciate some guidance.

Thanks!

Welcome to the site from Tennessee. Please introduce yourself to the members in the "New Member" Topic when you get a chance.

IDK. I think it depends on your intended use for the Match Kimber.
Pretty sure it has an adjustable rear sight, which is fine for competition, range target shooting, maybe even home defense. I think the concern for CC is durability of the adjustable sight. CC and self defense pistol usually have some type of "Combat style" fixed sights.

Other than one report I read about someone losing the adjustment screw I do not remember any other problems.

I did post under "new members" first, then I added this post. I do not intend to CC, only range and IDPA. Check out a couple of pics I uploaded to my thread under New Members.

Thanks!

I did see your pics. That is a very "new" looking Match pistol. I would have bought it also.
