Plain Black Sights?

The Kimber website is showing plain black sights for the non-CDP models of Micro, but all the actual examples I have seen have 3 dot sights. Does anyone know if the plain black ones are available at all? I would prefer those.

Thanks!

I don't know the answer to your question but, I have plain black sights on my S&W Pro Series 9mm an I hate them. Really hard to see for me.

I'm not a fan of all black sights either, but a quick call to Kimber should get your question answered.

I saw two Micros two weeks ago at an LGS. One was stainless and the other a CDP. They had the night sights....at least white dot sights. I did not handle one as we were in a hurry to get to an air show.

Thank you all for the welcome and suggestions. I called Kimber and they said the plain black might be available as an aftermarket option when they have caught up with demand.

Regarding sight preference, I prefer the plain black because for shooting large things quickly the Combat Focus Shooting method (focused on the target) works very well for me; the sights are for slower precision shots when I am aligning the corners and for this I find the plain black less distracting and faster.

I love the night sights! But I guess if you really hate them you could put some black paint on them!

Just curious how that works in the dark or very low light situations?

I had the plain black sites on my Ultra Crimson Carry II and I paid kimber to take em off and put on the Meprolite night sites and I'm glad I did....JMO
