    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. :eek:

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