I just purchased a new LW Champion today. It shoots great. One of the things that I wanted to change out was the rear sight. I always use Yo-Bo, Novak (plain black) replacement rear sights. I wanted to keep the existing tritum front sight. The Yo-Bo fit perfectly. One problem, impact dropped about 5" from POA. I have successfully used this sight to replace Novaks on all of my 5" guns and it has always had the same impact as the Novak. Upon closer inspection, it is apparent that the Novak rear sight on a 4" gun is not the same rear sight as that on a 5" gun. What sights will work with the existing front sights on a 4" barrelled pistol?

I am standing by for the answer, too. I picked up the YoBo for the same gun but did not install it yet.

How much problem was removing the original MIM fake Novak?

Mine did not come with a fake MIM Novak. It has Novak stamped on it. I had to knock it out with a hammer and a steel punch. I bent a brass punch trying to get it out. The Yost fit perfectly, but shoots low.
