HD Snake Sights will be available shortly for the King Cobra Target as well as front sights for the fixed sight Cobra and King Cobra models.
Rear Sight Blade
The HD Snake Sight rear notch dimensions have been changed to give the sight picture larger light bars on each side of the front sight. Changes to increase the notch size allow more daylight into the sight picture, letting the eye more quickly acquire and better focus on the front sight.
The dovetail has been made approx. .010" wider to allow fitting to the sight body, to eliminate the factory sight blade's wiggle, so fairly simple fitting is likely necessary. Please read the installation instructions to decide if this job is in your skill set and you have the tools needed to be successful.
The blade height has been increased by .040” which allows a deeper notch by a like amount.
The notch width has been changed from .130” to .150” to allow more daylight into the sight picture.
The top outside corners have been shaped in a large radius to minimize snagging on garments or cutting hands or holsters.
The blade’s thickness has been increased to improve the crispness of the sight picture and the radius at the bottom of the blade has been enlarged to strengthen the blade.
The dovetail size has been slightly increased to reduce the slop that existed with the original parts.
The set screw size has stayed the same - .050”, so it's hex key also works with the front sight. The set screw’s placement has been moved to the center of the of the blade.
The front sight has been increased in height by .020” to be optimized with 125-135 JHP self defense ammo. This will let you zero without the rear sight being jacked up excessively high.
The serrated sight blade is made in the Improved Ramp pattern to give a sharper, blacker sight image, yet still be good for holster carry in modern good quality gun leather.
The front sight is .125” wide to allow placement of color contrasting features like gold beads, fiber optic rods or tritium lamps.
The HD Snake Sight front sight is offered in serrated plain black, with a fiber optic rod, or a 14k gold bead, high polished domed end.
