    I'd like to switch the front sight on my CQB to a gold bead . Is the front sight dovetail proprietary to Wilson ?

    I am almost positive it is. I am sure it is not a Novak dovetail. The good news is Wilson has different heights. The bad news is his gold bead would be a little bit easier to pick up it the edges were rounded.

    I believe the front sight dovetail dimensions are: .300" x .060" x 60 deg - Same one's STI uses on their 1911's.

    So if you can find a Gold bead front sight for an STI...should work on your Wilson...or just reach out to the 'smith's on here....
