Different sizes of sight dovetails?

488 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Bearddevil
My Kahr Forum enlistment is so fresh that the ink is still sticky. Just bought a very early K9, the 9090 model with black oxide finish on carbon steel. After shooting it today I know I want to fix it up a bit. And that includes new sights since my eyesight is going downhill.

I have seen a mention, someplace in the interweb jungle, that there have been "small" and "large" dovetail sizes for the K9. But the only acceptable replacement sight I found available (Truglo) doesn't seem to mention anything about dovetail sizes.

So any info I can get about these dovetail slots will be appreciated.

Welcome Bart Noir.......sorry I can't help with your sights- but hang on...someone may show up who can.
Looking at Kahr's website (TRUGLO FiO Night Sight) on the Truglo, it says:
  • For K, MK, P, PM, T and TP models with new dovetail (produced after 2004). WILL NOT FIT P380 Models.

I don't know about the exact dimensions of the new dovetails, but I know the old one is about 0.345" wide. Dawson Precision has a nice illustration of the differences, though. Kahr Sights
