    Looks like LaRue has them on sale for $30 if you call in. The cheapest i can get them for is $39. I just installed a set on my DW Guardian and SA Pro Operator :supergrin:

    Yeah, no kidding. That's the cheapest I've ever seen them.

    yep, IME all but the EMP (and Micro) should use the .325" tall sight.
    you WILL have to file the sight dovetail base to get it onto the Springfield.
    FWIW, on my Brown, DW and knedrgr's DW, the sight didn't need any filing.

    here's a pic of factory sights i took off my EMP (left) and TRP (right)
    you can see where they filed to get the sight on and provide a tight fit.

    Is the .325 height for the front or the rear if getting the set? Sorry for the n00b questions but I really have not done any modding yet

    that would be the rear sight height for the Gov't, Champion and Ultra carry.
    you may want to measure with a caliper to make sure you get the right height though.

    um yeah.. remember the last time I talked to you about caliper measurements?.. I am guessing I will need to buy a digital set.. and brand recommendations?

    well it's like asking "what 1911 is best?"

    you can spend a =s=hit load of money on an expensive caliper, or buy a less expensive caliper. it doesn't matter as long as it works, fits your needs and is in your budget.

    if you didn't like my answer then you can stop asking me questions. :wavey:

    Ya depending on their shipping charges that could be a really good deal!
