CNC machined from Bar-Stock, Heinie's cross dovetail front sight for the 1911 Mil-Spec features a serrated face with a single tritium insert (no outline). The tritium dot glows in the dark, great for front sight acquisition at night. This front is designed to pair with the Heinie proprietary dovetail cut 1911 rears.
Machining of the slide is required for installation. Heinie recommends using a competent pistolsmith for installation. HSP offers installation, turn around time is currently running about 1-2 weeks.
Blued finish, rust preventative is recommended.
