Choose the Dawson Precision plain black dovetail front sight for your dovetail cut and the blade height that you want and I'll install a .080" diameter14k Gold Bead in it. The end of the bead that protrudes will be shaped into a hemisphere and polished to a mirror finish. After the machine work is done, the sight is bead blasted and reblued. Then the Gold Bead is secured in the sight blade using a two-part industrial epoxy. After the epoxy has cured, the blade and Gold Bead are drilled vertically and a .040" roll pin is inserted to mechanically affix the bead.
The Dawson Precision dovetail sights are not drilled for the 1/16" vertical roll pin at the front of the blade. If you want yours drilled, we have to have the slide, so we can install the sight, center it and then drill the blade so it matches the original hole in the slide. If you want to have this done, order item "111F Install Dovetail Front SIght"
Note that once you order this, it is non-cancellable, non-returnable and non-refundable. Be sure to measure your old sight and be certain that you order the correct height. Obviously, with a gold bead, or tritium lamp, etc. you cannot shorten the front sight to correct elevation.
Not available for stake-in front sights. Price does not include the sight. Delivery 2-3 weeks, depending on bluing schedule.
