This is a Springfield 1911 front sight, with resin overmolding. It comes with green or red, fiber optic family LitePipes, with 0.080 inch diameters. The sight fits Springfield Armory 1911 production models, with dovetailed front sights, except for the GI model and Mil Spec.
- Steel Construction
- Overmolded Fiber Optic LitePipe for durability
- Height .155"
- Height measurement is from the top of the sight blade to the bottom, not including the dovetail portion of the sight
- Gunsmith installation is recommended by HIVIZ. The dovetail portion of the sight is slightly oversized to allow for variance between firearms and fitting will be necessary.
- Use of a sight pusher that exerts pressure on the sight blade will damage the sight, only use a sight pusher that contacts the dovetail base.
