10-8 Performance 1911 Front Sight - Tritium

$61.99

1911 Dovetail Front Sight, .330"x.075"x65 degree (aka "Novak") dovetail, drilled for front roll pin. Our 1911 front sights are made from hardened 4140 bar stock for improved durability. Tritium and brass bead sights feature a narrowed front section to provide a clean sight picture even if the forward part of the blade is dinged up or dirty. All blades feature a 40lpi serrated front face for reduction of glare in all lighting conditions.

  • FITS: "Novak" .330" x .075" x 65 degree dovetail
    • WILL FIT: 1911 front dovetails from Nighthawk, Novak, Les Baer, Ed Brown, Rock River, Sig, Rock Island Arsenal and others. If you are not sure what height and dovetail dimensions you have, it is best to measure and/or consult with your pistol's manufacturer. Unmodified slides will require machining.  We do not guarantee exact fit in all the listed 1911s as each vendor cuts their dovetails to slightly different dimensions.  Please note that the roll pin hole location varies widely, and there may be a slight mismatch between our pin hole and whatever has been drilled in your slide.
    • WILL NOT FIT: Kimber, Springfield Armory, Wilson Combat, Colt (all models, including XSE, Special Combat Government, Defender, Gunsite, Rail Gun, etc. - Colt has changed their spec so many times and ways that we cannot predict what is going on with your gun), Dan Wesson, STI, SVI, Ruger 1911, Magnum Research.  
  • Heights: .175", .185", and .195" blade height.
    • Measure your existing front sight if retrofitting or check with your gunsmith for height suggestions when scratch building.  
      • If matching "in between" sizes (.180" for example), use the next shorter size (.175") and it'll shoot about 1/2" higher at 25 yards.  
    • Please note that each manufacturer and individual guns will vary in regards to what height is used, and there is no set standard height.  
    • .007" of sight height equates to roughly 1" of elevation change at 25 yards.  
      • TALLER front = LOWER point of impact
      • SHORTER front = HIGHER point of impact
    • PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CANNOT TELL YOU WHAT HEIGHT TO USE ON YOUR GUN, AS EVERY 1911 IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT.
      • If you must guess what height to use, try .185" as a starting point.
