Adjustable rear sites for TLE II

Does anyone know where I can find adjustable rear sight for this model without having to machine the slide ??
Basically what I'm looking for is an OEM fit.
Gun currently has nightlight sites that have gotten dim and I want to replace them.
Appreciate any help I can get.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois, I'd suggest you speak with Kimbers customer service department. Their night sights have a 10 year life and Kimber has been know to replace them when they've gone dim or out. It's worth taking the time to make the call, they may replace them for you.

Customer Service
Toll-Free: (888) 243-4522
Hours: M–F, 9 a.m.–7 p.m. Eastern

Another welcome to the forum from Ohio. Kimber should be able to help you with the adjustable sights you're looking for. Brownells or MidwayUSA are two more good sources for parts.

I have had good luck with optics planet .Tru-glo makes adjustable TFO sights for most guns

For the record, I'm not overly fond of my AmeriGlo sights. Just a heads up.

Thanks y'all for your help. Brownell's said they don't have anything to fit the gun. I haven't tried midway yet but they probably carry mostly the same things.
Spoke to Kimber customer service they wanted to see the gun it was built in 2006 and it's almost at the end of the warranty.
Kimber does have one set of sites but right now they're out of stock so I think I'll just have to wait on them.
thanks again for your help.

I would let Kimber replace the sights, even if you have to pay for parts and labor. Surely Kimber can come up with some sights that will work for you.

Cool Replace Tritium inserts!!

I'm not sure if you really want adjustable sights or would be happy if the night sights were back to original condition. If it is the latter of the two, then you are in luck, because the tritium inserts in your original sights can be replaced. That will take you right back to square one. BTW, Kimber can do this work.

If on the other hand you actually want fully adjustable sights, most would require some milling work on the top of the slide. I'd do more research, because I am just about sure that someone makes a set of adjustable sights that will fill in the Kimber dovetail with no additional milling. Good luck on your search and let us know how you make out!!
