This Kensight 1911 Front Sight incorporates a Bright White Dot on the blade as a focal point that helps naturally draw the shooter's eye to the front post. The front sight's white dot is countersunk into the sight blade's face, meaning it will not fade or flake off over time like a dot that is simply painted on. 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 that is slanted forward for reduced glare. It features a Contoured Base that blends in nicely with most round-top or "carry melted" slide profiles, resulting in a clean looking installation that requires little (if any) filing to accomplish. Compatible with Novak type front sight dovetail cuts (0.330" x 65 Degree x 0.070") as typically found on both customized and factory 1911 pistols.
