Somebody is going to faint at the prospect of this, but is there enough steel present on the slide of an R9 to dovetail it and add a set of Novaks?

Hello,

I can't answer your question, but, the R9 "S" Model comes with sights.

Take Care,

Hi chubbypidgeon,

I suggest called Novak's in West Virginia and asking them if it is possible.

Good idea, Chris.

Actually, I know the R9S comes with sights, but they don't look adequate to me...

One, I'd like night sights, and two, they just look too small to be useful at speed.

Unless the attacker is literally at arm's length, or very close thereto, I'm the kind who just thinks it's better to use your sights.

My R9s had a very close-to-the-envelope amount of metal on the slide. I would have been very hesitant to mess with it.

OTOH, if you call Karl or Eric Rohrbaugh, I'm sure they'd give you the best possible answer - and they'd be happy to do it. I've never had better customer response than from Rohrbaugh.

These folks can also probably give a good answer:
