1911 sights question...
I am preparing to purchase a 1911 and thought it would be great to order it with higher end after market sights. After looking on the net, as usual I come back to this forum to ask for opinions. Can anyone help?

Personally, I prefer Heinie Straight 8 tritium sights but don't know if any maker offers them as an option from the factory. Novaks seem to be the most common and are also a great sight. Only real difference is two dots (heinie) vs three!

Production model 1911s usually come with slide cuts for one style

I'm with Bud..............get the Novaks, you'll find them well made..............or the Tru Glow...TFO......... fiber optic sights are a good choice also........(take a look at the Sig Equinox guns cuz that's what Sig installs on the gun)

My answer in a can would be the Novaks, but it would really depend on the intended use. Is it going to be a carry gun, a sock drawer gun target or just a plinker?

Have to agree with SIXTO, it would depend on the pistols primary purpose.
On a carry piece, I like the Heinie-Trijicon front sight and the Yost-Bonitz retro rear.

I have to agree with torrejon224 - I have the Heinie straight 8 slant pro night sights and love them. The last set I bought were about $160 installed.
