View Full Version : Night sight help

October 13, 2017, 19:30
So I purchased a new production colt series 70 last year and decided to upgrade the sights. I bought a pair of Trijicon gov't 1911 tritium sights and absent-mindedly did so before discovering that the front sight has what appears to be a rounded tenon (the Trijicon front sight I bought is the narrow stake on type). Will this sight work or do I have to find one with a rounded tenon? If so, which one should I get? I want to install new sights on this pistol, but I don't want to modify the slide.

I just had a dove tail cut for a front sight on one of my original series 70s. No problem after that. As to your question I do not have an answer for you. I will try to remember to look at one in our shop tomorrow.
