How you can improve the factory sights from CZ P-07 pistol? We show in detail what are your options when it comes to improving your aiming process.
Why to replace sights on P-07
Factory P-07 sights are equipped with steel rear and front sights with white luminescent dots – both in rear sight and front.
If you own the gun primarily for self defense you may want to go for night sights. If you plan to use the gun more often on shooting range, then you probably will enjoy the shooting much better with fiber optic sights.
You also dont have to replace the complete sight set but can go only for replacement of the front sight, or only for replacement of the rear sight. Although we would not recommend switching the rear sight solely (i.e. without also switching the front sight), replacement solely of front sight is very common.
Replacement of front sight
One of the main points for aftermarket sights replacement on CZ P07 is bad visibility of the front sight.
If you have trouble finding the front sight when aiming, you may want to replace the front sight for fiber optic front sight, or tritium front sight – depending on the usage.
If you plan to replace sights by yourself, we wrote full guide on how to replace sights on CZ P07 pistols – surely check that before the replacement.
Fiber optic front sight
Fiber optic front sight significantly improves visibility in light conditions.
As the fiber optic rod inside collects light from surroundings, it transfers it into the small dot visible from the position of shooter.
As long as you are in good light conditions – well lighted indoor range, outside shooting range – you will be very happy with this improvement.
Tritium front sight
The main selling point of tritium sights is self defense. If you find yourself in bad light conditions, the front sight can be difficult to find.
At that moment tritium front sight becomes extremely helpful as it shines regardless of surrounding light conditions.
Compared to fiber optic front sight, in good light conditions tritium front sight is not as good as fiber optic. But in bad light conditions, the fiber optic is without usage and you can only use tritium front sight.
Replacement of complete sight set
Another option, and by far most popular, is to replace the whole sight set. Why? When you replace solely the front sight you will most often end up with different quality of production, different finish etc. If you go for the whole sight set, the looks are the same for the rear and for the front.
Also sight sets gives you additional improvement of aiming process.
If you get a sight set where not only front sight is with either fiber optic or tritium, but also rear sight is with fiber optic or tritium, you will be able to further faster the aiming. How does that work? Simply because you will be able to allign 3 dots faster then 1 dot in the cut.
So our advise is – if you are not held by the budget, go for the whole sight set replacement.
