This Heinie rear sight replaces the factory fixed rear sight on the Kimber 1911. It features our rear Ledge design. The military inspired sight design combines the best features of our Classic and SlantPro with a few of its own that sets it apart from your target or EDC sight. Equipped with a wide square notch for quick acquisition of the front sight, the rear face slants forward and is serrated with contoured edges (so it can be carried every day without worry of snagging). The Ledge was designed with a lip that allows the operator to cycle the slide with one hand easily, giving you an advantage in any situation.
The single tritium insert, when paired with a tritium front, will create the legendary Straight Eight configuration. Vertical alignment has proven to be faster and less confusing in stressful situations.
Minor fitting required for installation. No modifications to the slide are necessary.
Blued finish, rust preventative is recommended.
