The Springfield Armory 1911s equipped with a factory cut front sight dovetail require a front sight with the correctly dimensioned and engineered dovetail to fit properly. The best front sight on the market is made by Dawson Precision and I am pleased to offer it to compliment my rear sight product line. The DP sights are machined from hardened steel and are serrated 50 lpi to enhance daylight visibility. They are offered in heights of .140", .160", .180"and .205"; all with a width of .125".
Important Note: Please read the "Do I need a new front sight" topic located in all of the sight category sections for details on how to select the correct height for your pistol.
The .180" front sight is the typical Springfield factory front sight height for all adjustable sight versions and also works well with all variants of the HD-002.
