Look at it from the side the rear looks like a bump the front a hump.

Personal defense guns dont need sights jmb knew that when he made the 1911. The small sights are there for taking that rare aimed shot with a combat handgun. If you got time to aim the simple lopro sights are all you need.

I wish my new model series70 sights were a lot lower profile or not there at all. Less to hang up on crap

Great question and equally great answer.

This is why we're here. If us old farts depart and you young pups haven't ask the questions, "Old School" may just fade away.



Note the "hump and bump" sights on this M1911 as issued to the GI.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Cane, I'm pretty sure that's the best looking 1911 you've ever posted! No front cocking serations! Blued! Your effin killing me partner. Thats exactly what I'm looking for.
