    Ok, I tried this over on the "other" forum, but done fracked it up, so I'm trying again here. I'm going to have new sights installed on two of my 1911's. I've settled on gold bead fronts, and modern versions of the GI rear. Just debating on whether I should get Wilson or Novak front's, and Harrison Retro, or 10-8 NM for the rear.

    You can get an Ed Brown gold bead for $75.

    They are very good... I’ve got 3 of them.

    I prefer Nighthawks gold bead but Novak’s is ok. The Harrison GI is an awesome, tank of a rear sight.

    Night Hawk gold beads are contoured as well, makes for a much cleaner and more custom looking fit in the front Sight pocket. Then a GD Narrower U notch the narrower one fits the gold bead better imo.
