Hi,
I am confused by a detail with the Williams sight... The one on CS-USA looks like it just clamps onto the 11mm rail, just like my Tech-Sight. When I called Williams though, I was told their FP-CZ model for the CZ 452/55 requires 2 holes to be drilled and tapped onto the receiver! Are they different models?

Another question: My CZ 455 Ultralux has a swinging blade front sight with two adjustment screws and not a sliding post. This meant that I could not use the provided Tech-Sight front post and had to tweak the setup until I could use the blade (at max extension) with the new rear sight. The downside of this is the blade is rather wide and doesn't make precision target shooting easy. Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket blade for this setup?
I am guessing that the globe adapters that do exist are designed to work with the more common post on a sliding ramp front sights?

Thanks for any info you can give,
Peter.

Take a look here, Peter. This is a 452 rather than a 455 but it might answer your question:

Thank you for the idea! Sorry about the double post. I had not seen my first one appear and thought it got lost.
Cheers,
Peter.

Here's a globe front sight. The knurled part unscrews to allow you to insert your choice of post, aperture, crosshairs, or whatever. Inserts are either stamped from sheet metal or made of discs of transparent plastic with the appropriate image imprinted on or cut out of them.

Thanks for all the helpful replies. Now I guess I'll have find a rifle for the new sights.
