I had just picked up the stainless defender(would you have"Defender" post) and I have been looking for a set of night sights, Thinking about having a set of trijicon sights installed, They said that they didnt make them for the defender, and I would have to send in my slide to be drilled and the tubes installed, , , , Today I noticed that my Defender is a bit different form the ones I can find on Gun Broker, See pic

It seems odd to me, This defender was basically unfired to my eye, and if it was, I would think no more than a couple of rounds.
There are no markings on the rear sight as near as I can tell,
I had the gun at the range, and the sights are right on!
What are they, and can you tell me about the slide machining? You know, the angle machined, Mabey I can just order sights.?
Or did the defender just come with different sights depending when they were made?
I am a bit confused!:confused:

I think that Trijicon has a set for the XS Commander, maybe the CA-23's. The sights may not be the right height to work with the Defender though. XS may also make a sight that will work.

My CCO has the same sight cut, but has a Heinie rear sight. The front sight cut is proprietary too.

Good shopping!

Both of my Defenders are the early style with the same sights as yours:
