I'm not sure how but my front sight fell off. I have a Springfield 1911a1 with factory Novak night sights, well I did anyway. I've seen so many different sizes that I don't know which ones will even fit now. I plan to call Springfield tomorrow but I was wanting to change them out even before this happened. Anybody know which ones might work? Here it is in it's sightless glory http://i.imgur.com/z0PRsQ5.jpg

Anything with a Novak cut will replace it.

Springfield will replace it free of charge, if that's what you want.

Even with the custom work though? Also any chance of a quick sight cut rundown? I'd like to upgrade as I didn't like these anyway. Novak is a cut?

What custom work did have done to the sights?

And if you want aftermarket, you'd either have to buy them yourselves, or see if SA does other options.

Nothing to the sights themselves but usually for a company to do warranty work or anything like that they prefer you didn't modify their product.

It started off as a lightweight bitone w/night sights and somebody blacked the whole thing out then I got it and had a friend clean it back up polish a few parts and cerakote it.

Honestly?

If you want aftermarket anyway, why even bother?

You're only saving $25 bucks for the freakin' install.

That's What im here to figure out. The dots are too small on the factory sight and not great for high to medium light pickup for me.
