I plan to replace my stock Kimber sights with Heinie Straight Eights. Would anyone care to provide me with some feedback for these or experiences with other sights?
Thanks!

Heinie straight 8's are by far the best sights I have ever had. My Brown Kobra came with them and I have been hooked on them ever since. My Kimber Custom Classic is getting a full rework by a custom smith now and I am having the Kimber adjustable sights replaced with Heinie Straight 8's.

just a F.Y.I.--- I talked to Heine at Kimbers suggestion about replacing the stock adjustable on an Eclipse with their fixed night sights. He had the plan but hadn't had the parts made yet. He said they were coming from someone. Kimber was under the impression that Heine was up and running on this mod. This was about a month ago.

My Heinie Straight 8's to replace my Kimber's adjustable just came in and my smith is installing them now. We waited to have the gun refinished till the sights came in. I can't wait till it done. It was a complete rebuild. When I found out Heinie had replacements for the Kimber adjustables. I stopped my smith from refinishing till we could get a set in.

I thought the Kobra was a 'No Option' gun? Novaks only, as spec'd, end of discussion?

Are the Heinie replacements for the Kimber adjustables out yet?

If the answer to both questions is 'yes', Im a happy guy right now.

Thanks.

You are correct Brown will no longer will install the Heinies on the Kobra's. When I was looking for a Kobra to purchase I called Terry Peters and he told me he had and early production Kobra with Heinies on it. I grabbed it right away as I perfer Heinie's sights over the Novak's. (Bowhunter) :smile:

I really like the slant pro straight eights. I would even prefer the slant pro all black over the funny bone bashing stock kimbers.....
