First topic message reminder :

I have a Kimber desert warrior my wife gave me and it’s a great shooter and series 70 type ignition system.  However, it has fixed sights!  

The front sight is a dovetail type deal that could easily be replaced but the rear sight seems to be a Novak style cut.  I’m curious if cutting it for a nomad style or Ken sight or even a spare Springfield rear sight I have could be possible.  My hope would be for the finish to not be harmed other than where it’s milled.

Photo included for help. Like I mentioned above having the slide re milled is not a problem.  Not sure who I could have do it.  I need a ball gun for EIC and a new RO is not in the budget.  This was a gift from my wife so selling it is not an option

Look forward to any help
Joe

Kensight #860-063 seems appropriate. Supposed to fit without slide/dovetail mods.

That would be great but it says to replace Kimber adjustable rear sight.  Man, this would be great if it worked

Lablover,

I got a fully adjustable rear sight from Dawson Precision to fit the dovetail in my SIG TacOps 1911 9mm (the one you took to trigger weigh at Bristol). It was not a standard Novak cut.

Call DP, they are really knowledgeable and helpful.

Although the custom height/width front sight also from them turned out to be a little too loose and I had to have a gunsmith silver solder it in place - not their fault.

i need to correct myself. LPA duh. dovetail further forward. Nomar probably wouldn't work. But LPA version could be made similarly. I have an old Colt that I'm putting a Nomar type base on.
