    I've got me an SA 1911 GI, and the standard sights on it are garbage... I need something else. I want some night sights, but I am not sure where to buy any at a halfway decent price or even if I can for that matter.... :noes:


    School me. :wiggle:

    you'll have to have the slide cut for new sights. send it to a smith and have them cut it and install heine sights. i had a GI and decided it was too much of a hassle to change the sights. sold it and upgraded to a gun that was already cut

    Dammit. Thats what I was afraid of. I was hoping there was some sort of alien sight for it. :wtc:

    What is your intent?

    I carry my 1911 so I had the slide cut and Big Dots installed. :)

    Well I am tall and skinny, so this fits my build. My only gripe is the weight of it. But my belt holds it up just fine.
