Night sights?
 
Ok people i need some help figuring out what night sights will fit on a Girsan MC1911 .45.............i have seen a few differnt ones but none are specific to Girsan. Do i need s&w, glock, h&k, or what? Any info is appreciated.

Any night sight requires a dove tail for the front sight. Girsan's are staked like the original 1911s.

I recently ordered some novak tritium night sights for my Taurus 1911. Had some good reviews and looked solid to me

new_girsan_1911 03-05-2013 03:10 PM

Yeah i was looking at those but not sure what dovetail i have. Was hoping someone like SS had already looked into it and could help me out. Lol

If you have a micrometer just measure the size of the dovetail and you will know. They made it easy for me and had a special Taurus sub section

new_girsan_1911 03-06-2013 09:45 PM

Yeah, you got lucky and had it done for you. And i unfortunately have no calipers or micrometer to measure my dovetails and no one seems to have done it at all. Cant even message Girsan / Yavuz / Tisas and get that info. Ugh.

You may wish to call Novaks and they will be more than happy to assist. I have a set of 3 dot tritium on a 1911 that are outstanding in my opinion. If needed, I believe you could send them your slide for installation if you cannot determine the dimensions to your liking. I had very good service in my dealings with them.

New-Girsan...give me a couple weeks and I'll get you the right specs.

I called my local 'Smith and he is going to do a custom job on the front sight and add a fiber optic sight with dovetail post. Right now its a staked black post with no sight.

Once he gets in and takes measurements, etc Ill let you know what size product he ordered for my front sight. Leaving the rear Novaks alone....just want a kickass new front f/o sight ;)

new_girsan_1911 03-08-2013 07:46 PM

Wait a sec both of my sights look like dovetails...... And i talked to budsgunshop on facebook and they said they were told that the rear was a novak dove and the front is the type of dovetail s&w uses. Not sure if they got it from a reliable source or not. I also am in contact with tooltechgunsight.com and they are looking into what can be done with the Girsan. But keep me updated stainless........... Thanks
