We are very pleased to finally announce the release of our new 1911 Modular Rear Sight. This new sight replaces adjustable rear sights with a unique 2 piece design that allows the sight to be installed in the pocket cuts popular in custom 1911s. The design permits easy swapping of the removable, interchangeable sight leaf while the base remains in place on the pistol. The user can easily swap out the sight leaf with only a flat head screwdriver or the rim of a .45 cartridge casing. The height of the rear sight blade approximates .325" "standard" height 1911 LoMount rear sights, and permits use of existing front sights. Once installed, this sight behaves as a fixed sight.
The sight is currently available with a Bomar base, which fits guns with true Bomar style adjustable rear sights, including the popular STI Trojan and Springfield Armory TRP Operator. If you are not sure which base your pistol has, we suggest contacting the manufacturer. You can also check the photo gallery on the product page to compare the dovetail to your existing sight.
Sight Kit includes base, leaf, two set screws and wrench for base, custom pan head screw for sight leaf.
***Base for LPA Rear Sight coming later this year. LPA rear sights look similar to the Bomar, and are used on Springfield Trophy Match and Range Officer Models. Comparison photos are on the product page.
