    I've decided that instead of buying a new gun in the near future, I want to make some improvements to the ones I already own. It's mostly aesthetic stuff and accesories like holsters, extra magazines, etc.

    I'm going to start with my Para P14-45. It needs some nice wood or G-10 grips, any suggestions about where to get them? Standard 1911 grips don't fit. :mad:

    The other change I want to make is the rear sight, I'm looking for an adjustable sight that's not very bulky. What brands should I be looking at?

    Novak makes excellent adjustable rear sights that don't have any sharp edges or stick way up.

    Thanks for the Hogue link, Cane. I'm feeling a bit silly for not checking that one first.

    My pistol has a regular dovetail cut, not a Bomar cut so that sight won't work. :(

    I've used Dawson Precision for sights on more than one occasion - they carry a wide variety. As for grips, I've found Para double-stack grips on Ebay more than once...

    They dont ship to Argentina, or they don't ship out of US/Canada ? Did you talk to them ?
    I'm down here in Chile, and I was about to order some item from them...:confused:
