    Hey folks, I'm thinking of getting my Springfield mil-spec slide machined for a front sight novak dovetail. It already has a 10-8 NM rear sight with a .140 u notch and I was wondering what everyone here preferred for a front sight to match with that. The 10-8 website states it's compatible with...

    Thought to see is anyone has a Troy folding front sight laying about, I'd take the whole set front and rear if necessary.

    I have a Colt 1911C .45 ordered for a project. Is it possible to have the sight dovetails cut (Novak) on the slide without requiring a refinish of the slide? I am considering Nighthawk to do this, and forgot to ask Bob Reeves. I prefer to retain the blued finish on the pistol, and NH does...

    Ok folks....need some help locating a good BRIGHT, LARGE front sight for my DW CCO (either Trijicon HD types or Fiber Optic). Backstory: I have some Trijicon night sights on my DW CCO and DW ECO that have a white outline. While I love this set up....these particular night sights are crap...

    I purchase this Kensight adjustable replacement sight to install on my Colt 5 inch government MarkIV series 80 in 9x23 Winchester. Problem: There are no internal threads on the sight for the elevation screw. Just a hole on the mount where the adjustment screw protrudes through. It looks as...

    Has anyone here used a chamber style laser bore sight on a pistol to check iron sight alignment for point of impact? I’m having a problem with POA vs POI. In order to get on target with a 5 inch government 1911 I have to hold the front sight way high above the rear ledge of a fixed rear. If I...

    Ok, I'm very new at this. I would appreciate any and all help. I have a new LesBaer Boss 45. Out of the box it shoots 2 inches left of POA at 25 feet. Has adjustable rear sight but moving the adjuster all the way to the right did not move the POI much at all. Just eye-balling the sight...

    Anyone know if GC used the standard Novak sight dovetail on their NN 1911? I am most likely going to change the front sight on my NN .45, need to know this first. Sparx

    Hi all, new member here. I'd like to replace the sights on my 1911 (rear will be the 10-8 NM sight; front is still up for debate but something thinner than the current stock front sight). It's a bone-stock reproduction Colt 1911 series 70 and will be used for plinking, perhaps a class or two...

    Greetings, I bought my very first 1911 about a month ago, a Dan Wesson A2 (5in, Govt. size). During the first range session with it I discovered the sights are set up for a combat sight picture, i.e. a 6 o'clock hold (at the standard 25yards). I prefer POA=POI so I'm going to be replacing the...

    So when I bought my X9 it came equipped with the night sight...but also has the green FO sight. I wanted to change it out to try the fiber on it, but after removing the screw, I can't get the front sight to budge. I'm scared of pounding on it, so all my efforts have been with just trying to do...

    OK...decided to install a Fiber Optic front sight on my Kimber Stainless II that I bought recently (used) since I'm looking to use it for some USPSA shooting. The black-on-black sights aren't good for me, and I bought a Fiber Optic for a Kimber from Dawson Precision. Today I tried to remove...

    So it appears that all the N/S Vials on my SA TRP Operator, SS TRP and Lwt Compact have done expires and given up the ghost.....What the heck does one do to either replace them or just paint white dots over them or what? Karsten

    So I sent my ol 5" CQB to Wilson in reference some minor issues. I've been carrying this weapon since the late 90's as my primary SRT pistol. Upon retiring from the big PD I went to work with a small dept as their range officer. I have always painted my front sight in an effort to pick it up as...

    Hello forum members! I could really use some direction from you good folks. I have a SA TRP that I bought new in @ 2003. Took it to the range one time back then and put about 100 rounds through it. All was good. I haven’t had it out since then other than a yearly oily rub down. I don’t get to...

    So I currently have a Les Baer Custom Carry I'm also expecting to receive a TRS within the next weeks or so, and I have some questions regarding the sights on these two 1911s. My Custom Carry came with the standard Baer three-dot night sights; I've replaced the rear with a Dan Wesson single dot...
