Adjustable Sight for Novak Cut

Post by mprince on 10/16/2018, 12:26 pm

Does anyone know of a good quality adjustable sight for the novak sight cut.  I got a Springfield 1911 at Perry for a ridiculous price, but it came with Tritium Novak sights.  I would like to occasionally use it as a Ball gun, if only for practice and would like adjustable sights.  Anybody know of a good one.

Thanks

I’m going through the same thing. I’m buying Dawson precision sights.

Another line of adjustable sights for Novak cut

Wonderful Dan Wesson 1911 in 9mm had silly, fixed, two-dot sights in what seems to be a Novak cut.  Found LPA (Northern Italy) sights that fit and are adjustable.   Conventional three-dot adjustable:  P/N SPS07NK30.   Fiber three-dot adjustable: P/N SPF42NK.  Installed the latter and made the pistol usable. [Some Dan Wesson chambers are TIGHT - use Lee U die (90313) and gauge with L.E. Wilson gauge]

I got the one that JGlenn suggested but no white outline.   It gave me an excuse to buy that MGW site tool I have always wanted Smile

The full MGW sight "adjuster" is good.  However, many factory sights are almost welded to slide.  I have found that the most important thing is to adjust the big, white, plastic dome that is to sit on the top of the slide just right.  For 1911 sights, I found it desirable to take out one of the washers that are behind the dome so as to have adjustment.  Do report your experience.  The two-dot sights used on Dan Wesson were very difficult to remove.

I am glad you mentioned that.  I will definitely be taking out one of those washers to let the pusher sit lower.  The Trijicons that were on it came off reasonably easy and the Kensights went on with about the same amount of effort.
