gold bead

  1. 1911 Gunsmithing
    Alright folks this may be a longshot but I've been really hoping to throw a gold bead front sight on my Colt XSE. Mine has this dovetail that sits closer to the end of the slide and it's not a normal novak cut or anything like that. Does anyone know if there are any gold bead front sights for...

    Solution found - went with the SDM - very reasonable - thanks for all the suggestions ... Ed Brown .180 height needed - will consider gold bead (preferred), f/o or the hi-viz if someone has one they have tried and taken off for whatever reason. Replacing the sight on a favorite Kobra Carry LW...

    Hi all - I'd like to replace the stake-in front site on my Springer V-10, ideally I'd like to have a Novak cut dovetail but I'm not sure if there is enough material because of the port vents. I need something that pops for my (aging) eyes like a Gold Bead or .. So what are your thoughts - do I...

    So, I held off on getting the Straight 8’s swapped out on my Nighthawk T3 while it is in for refresh. I did this for two reasons; First, they are bloody expensive. Second, and probably more importantly, with my other 1911’s I tend to just have solid black sights and they work fine. Granted in...

    This is post is mostly just an excuse to post a couple of pics of my Krebs Custom Colt Commander since I haven't in a while, but, it really did get a new gold bead in the front sight. When I sent Mark Hartshorne the 28-2 for the .41mag conversion he was kind enough to also agree to drill the...

    I'm thinking of going to a gold bead front sight on the TRS I just bought, any suggestions on the best source? I've heard about some that were a little dull so wanted to avoid that. I typically run a fiber front with a black rear but thought I would try gold out. Thoughts?
