I read the re-lamping thread and was overjoyed to see I could get the dead lamps replaced by Trijicon. Filled out the RMA sent photos and things went south, maybe...lol

I'm not quite sure how to interpret this customer service reply. Willard was kind enough to send me detailed pictures of his Trijicon sights then off his 225. Mine seem to match identically but I have white dots in the 12 o'clock position, the rear sight is stamped Trijicon. (Believe his white spots might have worn off?) I'll not repost Willards pictures, but attached are the sights on my Sig 225. Sorry for the bandwidth, apprised the help. Bob

Here Trijicon's replys in descending order:
I had our on-site armorer confirm that these are not Trijicon night sights. None of us have ever seen iron sights with white dots on top, I am sorry that we cannot assist your further in this matter. Thank you, please enjoy the rest of your week.

They are not Trijicon manufactured sights and as I mentioned earlier, we do not make front sights with vent holes in the top , this is also supported by our past armorer. However, we can re-lamp OEM sights with our stamp as long as we have the correct lamp size and the holes are indeed vented. It should also be noted that when re-lamping the OEM rear Sig sights like his, the ones I have done in the past are not painted and will slightly protrude without affecting form and function.

You should have an RMA# already, you are welcome to send your sights in and we can see if these are indeed sights that can be re-lamped. As he made mention of… as long as we have the correct lamp size and the holes are indeed vented Trijicon Customer Experience Specialist

Thank you so very kindly for getting these photos so quickly. Unfortunately these are not Trijicon sights and we will not be able to service them. I honestly in 17 years of working here have never seen iron sights like those with the white dots or the 7 and 8 stamped on them. I did try to search for them to get you more information but could not find anything like them. I am very sorry, please enjoy your evening sir. Trijicon Customer Experience Specialist

I tried looking at some older parts catalogs to see if I could find those style sights that you have. I could not locate any but then while reading another post there was a 226 listed in a gb auction that got my attention. zoom in on the rear sight pic.

It was a police trade in. If you use the serial number shown and call sig customer service they may be able to give the the type ie make of the sights on this gun. A little detective work but you may get lucky and figure out what brand sights are on it. Good luck.

Obviously Trijicon is busy and seems not to want to waste the armorers time, I understand. I offered to pay full price if I was in error. Will wait for any further clarification from the forum. Before I formulate a plan 'B'. Dim lamps at night on my 225 is driving with no running lights on a car, good for 1/2 the day.

You are wasting your time. Send it in to SIG for their refurb deal. It includes nite sights and they will refinish your slide, give you new springs, and complete upgrade your pistola for less than Trijicon will sell you sights.
(BTW, those are not Trijicon sights.)
Good advice RE the Sig Service recommendation but, not sure about the “they will refinish your slide” part.

Well, I stand corrected. Seems they are now excluding the German P225s on their Service Upgrade plan. See this page on their site:
Look like they can install SIGLITE sights, though.

My pistol has been completely stripped and inspected, only thing it needed was a good inspection, cleaning and lubrcating, upgraded to tungsten guide rod & new GR spring, as well as a Superstrut and hammer spring Kit. Quite happy with the results. I’ll check into the siglite install. I‘ve actually seen pictures of 225 sights stamped Trijicon ….go figure. Thanks

The dead giveaway for a rear Trijicon sight is the recessed 1/2 triangular cutout and the eyebrow formed by the insertion of the tritium inserts at the 10 and 3 o'clock positions, see picture View attachment 476750
This is another pic of the pistol I posted above. From the looks of it, it looks just like yours with the triangle cutout.

My p228 from the early 2000s had those same sights. Can’t remember if they were Trijicons. Right now with how the mail is no way would I send a slide of a classic, out of production Sig anywhere. I would just buy new sights and have a gunsmith install them.

How much does it cost to relamp a set of sites?
This was a quote from Trijicon posted in May,2020 in the 'Gunsmithing thread'

"Thank you for your inquiry and continued patronage. We can service almost all our sights as long as our tritium lamps installed in the sights. They will have an inspection completed before warranty status is made known; we cannot replace non-Trijicon installed tritium or rear horizontal bar sights. If it is deemed non warranty/out of warranty, the re-lamping is at a cost of $19 per lamp ($57 for a 3-dot system) and we must do this in the factory.

Don't know if its current price.

Looks like Trijicon lamped those for SIG back in the day.
Rereading the thread, I realized that Trijicon omitted a SMALL detail in their letter to me about the front sight/rear sight. The rears on the P225 ARE Trijicon but for one reason or other the front sight was sourced elsewhere. There-in lies the crux, so technically I'm 66.66% right saying they are Trijicon, and as I said Trijicon relamped all three for $57.

I've never seen a Trijicon front sight with a number marked on the side like yours. That certainly threw me off. But all of my SIGs that i carried back in the day did not have OEM nite sights. I had Trijicons installed...
Post 10 this thread far right pic Trijicon rear is marked 7, I agree with Trijicon on front sight not being theirs, but they relamped all three for $57 in 2020. Slide shipping out today....Stay tuned
