One of my prize 45's got dropped by my shooting buddy the other day:cuss:
He is my friend, but he dutched up the bead blase finish, and dinged up the Bomar adjustable sight on the gun. I plan of sending the gun back to the custom gunsmith who built it, but I am wondering is any other sights will fit the Bomar slot on the gun. While the love the total control of the Bomars, they are pretty straight lines on them, and I can feel it catch on clothing. I would like to find a decent more combat angled site to perhaps at least try on the gun.
Any ideas and knowledge on this out there folks?

Thanks in Advance!!:)

Might contact Brownells direct with your question; I'm sure they'll have your answer.

I picked up a used Colt recently that someone had modified Bomar sights per the method described in the link below.
The triangulated bomar and thin front site are much quicker to pick up then the standard bo-mar.

IIRC, Heine makes a BoMar cut fixed sight.
