Default Novak Sights for 6906???

Found a set of Novak front & rear sights to fit my 6906. I've never used Novak sights before. Are they an improvement over the "stock" sights or is it just a matter of personal preference? Is $30 a good price?

Thanks!

Great price but I like night sights on mine because that is what I use at work. Trijicon SA08 are the correct ones for the 6906.

When you say "stock" sights - if your 6906 has the early blade rear sight, the slide will have to be machined to accept the Novak sight.

Back when I owned a couple of 6906's I preferred Novak sights.

Help!

Several years ago I bought a 6906 slide and barrel from EBAY that I put on my 669. I got the sights I wanted and a barrel for less than it would have cost to have Novak style sights put on my slide.
