Product Description

Dovetail Front Sight for S&W 1911 and E Series 1911. Our front sights are made from hardened 4140 bar stock for improved durability. Fiber optic design features countersunk front and rear holes to protect the flared ends of the .060" fiber.  The tunnel for the fiber protects the fiber with an additional center post.  All blades feature a 40lpi serrated front face for reduction of glare in all lighting conditions. Height of .145" is identical to factory front sights on fixed rear sight models, and will not affect point of impact.

Fiber optic sights include one red and one green .060" fiber.  Dovetails are oversized and will require some hand fitting.

Please note that the E Series 1911 slides have a pronounced flat top that undercuts the area leading to the front sight.  The fiber optic sights will slightly overhang the flat top, but it has not proven to be a snag hazard.

  1. Not exzactully what the description claims 3 Star Review

    Its a nice sight ,but very difficult to install with no instructions and it does change the point of bullet elevation and hang over the scallop more than the description says.

  2. dont do anything to your 1911 without a file 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2013

    I ordered this sight hoping for a drop in sight. It isn't. I mangled the sight trying to get it in before I started filing it down. Now that I know how to put it in, I have to order a second one and do it right this time.

  3. Difficult fit 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd May 2013

    Attempting to fit sight on a S&W PC1911 was a royal pain. Depth of dovetail at rear of front cut not the same as front of dovetail. Had to not only file base for fit (which I expected) but also had to file underside of the sight body that would overhang the slide. I think that 10-8 should review this sight fit and/or change the design.

  4. Well built 5 Star Review

    compares favorably with Warren Tactical and Novaks I have on other pistols, very good design

  5. Great fiber optic sight 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2012

    Fiber optic sight is a great addition to the "E" series S&W 1911. Combined with the 10-8 rear sight it helps these 63 year old eyes get on target a bit faster. Very well made.
