    it's up to you. i'm not sure if there are BoMar sights available with FO, so that would leave you with Novak.

    I use Dawson front FO sights, with black serrated rear sights. I think Dawson has FO rear sights for the Novak cut.

    Nice choice for a build Bill. They are nice people to deal with. Mike the owner is a master shooter and his walls in the office are covered in plaques. The have 3 dillion
    1050s set up when you go in. I buy lots of gun parts off them.

    I really like that particular Dawson, however it takes a cut other than the one being offered with the STI kit: The Bomar BMCS Cut differs from the standard Bomar cut in that in the BMCS cut, the rear sight's elevation screw fits directly into threads cut into the top of the pistol's slide.

    Any suggestions?

    Thats should work on that slide. the STI Adjustable sight is a BoMar BMCS replacement.

    I think what I will do is ask Mike when I place the order. He might even have the correct fiber optic sights for the kit. I was thinking about red fiber in the rear and green in the front. Any comments or thoughts.
