Im looking at getting new sights for my Smith 559 9mm ,but having no luck .It has the factory adjustable sight,at least i think its factory,i cant find any info on this model. Im ok with the sights except for some reason the rear sight is sitting lower on the left than the right side,very distracting when looking down the sights.The sights are a two piece sight ,the part that attaches to the frame is mounted straight ,and the sight its self with the adjustable elevation and windage that attaches to that is canted.

Any one know any thing about this model Smith &Wesson 559/9mm.


Thanks for any info

Hi Dragon,
Possibly Millet 100 Auto Loading Sight Sets, or just replacements for the rear blade. (Would require a gunsmith to install).

Check Millet 100 sights, Numerich Arms, Midway, CDNN, S&W Forum,
Google search on S&W 59, 459, 559, 659 sights.

I just painted my front blade with a yellow base cover and then
neon red with a protective layer of clear for better sight acquisition.

Dragon,
Here is some nice info thread on a 459 sight issue which
would relate to after market sights for your 559.
