    What do you guys reccomend for replacement fiber optic rods? I just put in a Brownells branded green fiber optic rod in my front sight, and it doesn't seem very bright or clear.

    Been looking at replacement sights for my wife's Staccato C. She really likes a 2 dot rear sight. It would seem that is something that's pretty hard to find for the Novak cut STI. I ended up ordering a set of Tritium sights from Dawson Precision. Anyone have these? Any other sights out there...

    I currently have the SR1911 with only basic front and rear sights, adjustable only with punch. I saw an SR at a weak gunshow with fully adjustable sights.

I don't baby the gun, but it's never been dropped or used...

  10. General 1911 talk
    I'm a huge fan of fiber optic fronts and rear ghost rings on rifle sights: for close range work, nothing gives you a faster acquisition this side of a mini-red dot. But I was sorely disappointed when trying a FO-equipped handgun in an indoor range: the ambient light was not enough to brighten...
