    Hi all. I've begun shooting in IDPA in CDP and ESP and am interested to get your advice on a .45 1911 in CDP.

    Would a Molon Labe work well since it has 10-8 rear sight and a magwell, as opposed to a Special Forces or a LBC Ultimate Tactical Carry? All great guns, I know, but some would need juicing up w/ a magwell, no? Are a 10-8 rear sight and a gold bead front sight the best way to go?

    Gold beads are never the way to go, IMO. :biggrin1:

    If your IDPA club includes low-light shoots, I'd use a tritium front. If not, a fiber-optic would be my next choice followed by plain black.

    Tks, CMG. What color optic front for daytime contests? What about 10-8 rear instead of fixed tactical ns?

    Sorry, looks like I posted this ? in the wrong place.

    My personal carry Glock has the 10-8 rear and brass front works in everything but complete darkness.

    The nice thing about fiber-optic sights is you can change colors to suit, just by changing out the colored rod.

    Right now, I'm running a red rod and like it alot.

    Brass beads are functional, and fashionable right now, just not my thing.

    The 10-8 rear is a good choice.

    8theburger,
    Nite-sites will serve you well under all conditions. IDPA is more an accuracy game over speed.

    Personally I would go with an adjustable rear and a fiber optic front. I like green fiber optics.

    I shoot IDPA and the way my eyes are getting, I'm trying to figure out how to mount three white pool cue balls on my 1911...

    I think these guys make the sights you want for the 1911s as well:
