    Hi,

    I'm planning to upgrade my 72C Browning Hi Power to accept Novak Night Sights.

    As I see that there are only 2 options for the Novaks either only for the Mk II and Mk III only.

    Which would I get?

    Any recommendations?

    This is a pretty old thread. Did you ever get your night sights installed?

    As for you original question, the cuts required for the Mk II and Mk III are different. If you have a gun smith in mind that can do whatever you want, there are lots of options. I have a HP that Don Williams put 1911 sights on.

    Here's my factory stock 72C Browning Hi Power

    Bought the Novak Sights

    I seem to have made a mistake in sight height as Novak recommends .215 front sight for the MKII Rear sight. I'm now shooting low. Much lower

    [​IMG]

    When I installed the sights, front sight is too high at .215 and I'm looking forward to replace it with a .160 which is standard or maybe .165.

    Anyone can help?
