    I like the Harrison "Retro" rear sight. No machining required, has a stock look, but with a wide notch.

    If it isn't durable, it isn't reliable.

    I'm doing the same.

    Yeah they are and that's why.

    I love the Wilson sights. I have them on my Glock and my old 1911 that I just sold. I also replaced the HDs with them on my wife's M&P. My new 1911 is a SA and doesn't look like they'll fit so I ordered a 10-8 rear last night. I also greatly prefer the u-notch.

    Wilson's rear sight fits the Novak Low Mount dovetail. It'll work.

    They do, but they require a taller front sight which isnít the right cut. Shouldíve clarified.

    I have the Yost, now Harrison Design, retro rear sight with a Novak gold bead front. I like it a lot.

    They have a good wide notch like the models mentioned, but don't need to have the slide machined.

    JUST had these Trijicons (#600527) installed on my SA Loaded.




    It's a big change for me, as I've preferred low-profile Novaks, since they came on my S&W 1006 back in '91. But I'm getting the hang of them.

    10-8 u-notch is installed, looks dope and I think itís the perfect height. I should be able to verify tomorrow.

    Can't go wrong with a 10-8 rear!
