I have Bo-Mar's on two of my Colt 1911's and on a SW Model 10 revolver with a bull barrel and the full length Bo-Mar rib with their rear sight along with their front post, which is a simple blact design. I personally like the set up and do not like fiber optic fronts in neon colors. Might just be that I am old school, or just old, but the fiber optic sights are just too distracting to me. They may be optimal in low light combat situations, but for target shooting I prefer the all black sights front and rear. But if you have the opportunity to try several different types on 1911's it would be very beneficial to your decision. Good luck.
However last I checked Bo-Mar may be out of business. But there are a number of copies on the market by different companies. Check some of the major suppliers for alternatives. Some may use the standard dove tail already cut on the slide some may require a modified dove tail be machined.
