P16 rear sight


Recommended Posts

As my eyes grow heavy snd my sight grows dim I'm toying with mounting a Doctor red dot on my P16 Limited and go play with the Open guys. I've found a low Doctor mount for a 1911 and am wondering if the rear sight dovetail dimensions are the same as my Para.

As with most things in life, there's a learning curve for dinking with guns. Seems I've presented a trick question.

THERE AIN'T NO STANDARD 1911 DOVETAIL SPECS! Largly depends on mfg. :surprise:

Standard Para specs are .375 X 30 degrees for the rear and .250 X 20 degrees for the front. :cheers:
