    Sight replacement for Kimber officers?

    I just picked up a Don Hume OWB holster that has the perfect cant and ride. I am so comfortable with this thing that I finally feel good about carrying my 1911. I often opted for my Kel-Tec PF-9 because none of my other 16 ba-jillion holsters for my Kimber really felt good.

    But I digress....

    The only issue I have is that the front sight on my Kimber catches during the draw. I never noticed the angle before and the other holsters never had an issue with it, whether it was cant or kydex moulding, whatever.

    So, does anyone have good sight replacement recommendations for the Kimber? They are the dove tail type. It is a Ultra Carry II Stainless Oficer's model.

    I am thinking fiber optic or night sight but I need to have the rear angle of the front sight in such a way that is does not grab the holster during the draw.

    Thanks for any in-sight, pun intended.

    I think I would call kimber and explain the problem to them and see if they point you in any certain direction. Maybe low profile sights? Not sure on my end. I've called kimber before they are real helpful and courteous.

    Does the sight stick out past the bottom of the holster? If not, what is it catching on? Don't know if this will help, but it's the only thing I see right away with any amount of angle on the front sight.
