This Kensight 1911 Front Sight incorporates a Fully Serrated Ramped Blade that effectively reduces glare in bright, backlit conditions and makes for a simple sight picture that's easy to acquire against light backgrounds and is the traditional favorite of both competitive target and bullseye shooters. In order to ensure the strength and integrity of their front sights, Kensight Wire-EDM machines them from 4140 Chrome Moly Steel and then heat treats the completed parts to a hardness of RC 38-40.
This Front Sight comes equipped with a 0.115" Wide Blade and features a Flat Base that is optimal for use with a flat-topped slide or for those who intend to file and blend the front sight base to match the contour of their pistol's slide for a seamless looking installation. Compatible with Novak type front sight dovetail cuts (0.330" x 65 Degree x 0.075") as typically found on both customized and factory 1911 pistols.
