    Just bought a Desert Eagle .40 from my brother. Has just the basic sights on it, wanting to put something new on there. What would WMD suggest? Not looking to break the bank or anything... =>$150.

    I thought that the official name on these pistols was the Baby Eagle... one of the first pistols I ever owned, sold it to me friend who still has it and doesn't wanna sell it back to me haha.

    I'd just get tritium night sights, if anyone makes em for this pistol. It's not a very popular/common gun, so finding aftermarket sights might be a problem. I didn't have any issues with the standard sights though.

    The standard sights are ok..was looking into the night sights. Just needing a second opinion I guess.
    You're right about finding sights for it...it is becoming a rather daunting task.

    I'd check out www.czforumsite.info and look for what size dovetail that is.

    I doubt CZ sights fit, so I dunno wtf you have left. For $150 though, you miiiiight be able to get someone to mill in Novaks or something.

    Jesus... fuck that noise.

    For that kinda dough, I'd get a Novak/Heinie milled into the rear, and rust run a tritium front. I imagine the sight picture would be at least 10x better.
