    Adjustable Sight for SAR B6P

    I recently purchased a SAR B6P and I really like it. It groups well for me. but the shots are about 4" low at 25 yds. I would like to install an adjustable sight on it, but there doesn't appear to be one made specifically for it. I am wondering about one for the Beretta 92 it appears to me like it has possibilities. it appears to sit on top of the barrel with no relief cuts. A CZ or Witness wouldn't fit, at least without a fair amount of mill work, which I would like to avoid if possible. If anyone has both the SAR and Beretta, or are familiar with them both, I would certainly value your opinion.

    Have a Beretta 92fs that came with standard non adjustable sights. That got old very fast. Bought a LSA adjustable rear sight from Brownells that is made for that model. You get to use the factory front sight (made as one piece with the slide) and with some slight stoning on the LSA dovetail fit snugly and tightened up the set screw. No alterations needed to the Beretta. Haven't had to adjust it since the initial sighting in. Hope this helps. Frank

    Thanks Frank, Does that rear fit entirely on top of the barrel, or is it inletted some what, if that makes any sense. On a Witness it sets lower by a few thousands of an inch.

    I own 3 B6P's, and fortunately they all shoot to point of aim.

    I do remember talk on another board about putting adjustable sights on, but most guys didn't want to stick that kind of money into this price point of a pistol.

    That being said, I think it was some LSA sights that were the closest to working with the dovetail. But be warned that the Turks made their own angles in the dovetail so fitting is required.

    Have fun with your pistola, and I really like mine!��

    I'll have to dig out my Beretta 92FS and check for you. Will post tomorrow if all goes well. Frank

    If it will fit, Beretta, lists an LPA for around $60, I wouldn't mind that so much. I am a tight sucker, but the pistol seems well made, and in the end, to my thinking, all it does is throw lead down range. Hopefully at what I shoot at.

    Checked out the 92FS with the LSA rear sight. Sits above the back of the slide. And front sight friendly. If you decide to get one and it won't fit in the dovetail all the way, slightly stone or file gently on the sight. Always work on the cheap parts first. Once you get it centered in the dovetail lock down the setscrew and forget about it. Frank

    Frank. Thanks much, sounds like it might work. Anyway I took the plunge. Beretta had them 2 for for $104 with free shipping, and also a 10 dollar off coupon. with tax they came to something like $101 and change. I reckon everybody needs a spare. Again thanks., G.M.

    I just noticed that my correction has changed LPA to LSA in my post.....wonder what kind of sights you would get if you were to follow my name brand suggestion.......

    Some slick, well-lubricated sight sets I am sure!

    My sights arrived today, I immediately installed one on the SAR, it went on easily, a slide fit in the dovetail. I'm not real happy though. The sight only has about .020 inch vert. adjustment, 1 turn or less on the adj. screw, and at the highest setting is still to low for my pistol. actually about the same height as my old sight. I can, and may, file off the bottom of the elevation screw allowing for a couple more turns or so. If that isn't enough, I might fabricate a taller rear sight plate and JB weld it to the rear surface of the sight. The other Beretta sight I will attempt to install on my FEG 9MM High Power. I'll have to modify the dovetail on the sight, but it appears to be about the same height as the original.
