List of SIG Sight HEIGHTS

Since Sig sights fit the XD, I think this information may be of use to us:

http://www.praxagora.com/lunde/SigProFAQ/VI/2.html

I'll include some of the info from that website here in case praxagora ever goes down.

Rear Sight Heights:

#4 = 5.24mm (0.21 inches)
#5 = 5.52mm (0.22 inches)
#6 = 5.80mm (0.23 inches)
#7 = 6.07mm (0.24 inches)
#8 = 6.35mm (0.25 inches)
#9 = 6.62mm (0.26 inches)
#10 = 6.90mm (0.27 inches)

Front Sight Heights:

#5 = 6.01mm (0.235 inches)
#6 = 5.88mm (0.230 inches)
#7 = 5.74mm (0.225 inches)
#8 = 5.60mm (0.220 inches)
#9 = 5.46mm (0.215 inches)
#10 = 5.32mm (0.210 inches)


A higher rear sight number (taller) will raise the point of impact, but a smaller front sight number (taller) will lower the point of impact.

I called SA today; it took a few minutes to get an answer, but here it is. Apparently, the front sight post is .160", and the rear sight comes in three heights. Short is .258", standard is .260", and tall is .262". Hope this helps...I personally didn't understand what someone could do with the Sig sights without knowing the XD sights he or she had been shooting with.

XD site heights

That's some great info on the sight heights. However, you didn't say what barrel length it went with. They must be different, my 3" XD right here and right now measures .167 on the front, and .205 on the rear. Not matching any of the numbers. -Glimmer31

Whoa...it's different by barrel length? I told the SA tech I had a service model (4")...could someone with calipers measure the heights on a 4" and compare?

Barrel length vs Sight Height

As I see it, the sight height has to be different by barrel length due to sight radius. At least that's correct by the gunsmithing books I have. -- Glimmer31

Addendum to Barrel length vs Sight height

I don't have a 4" to measure or I would. I would also be interested if someone with a 5" would measure and post the results. My 3" is an 9MM. I'll bet the 40s and the 45s are different too. Just a hypothisis. The guy who earlier said "they all shoot high" should know that Springfield sets their sights to the "6 oclock aim point" (at 25 yds, aim at a guy's belt buckel to hit him in the chest) type aim. I like what I'm hitting to set right on top of my front site. I think he does too. That's why they all seem to shoot high. He needs to lower his point of aim. -- Glimmer31
