Looking for source for a specific size / shape 1911 front sight


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to replace a sight on a 1911 slide. I've poured over the Brownells catalog and Google searched everyone I can think of. Here's what I am looking for:

Plain black post (or maybe a serrated ramp as a second choice)

.210” tall (or .215” would be close enough)

,090” wide

60° x .330" x .060" Dovetail

Anyone know of a source? I do not think the current sight I am replacing is a custom make, but who knows...

Thanks in advance.

I just went and looked up the old e-mails. It was from Jan. of 2011. The person I e-mailed said they could make them. I called and talked to someone else who said they no longer make custom sights. I think the problem was I wanted a custom width, not a custom height.
