I was wondering if any of you knew if the dove tail for the rear sight of the Spanish Llama X1B is the same as other 1911 style handguns? I have a need for an adjustable rear sight on my 9mm Llama and I was needing to know if I could just order a standard sized rear sight or if I will have to take this one to the gunsmith. It has a windage adjustment, but I need some elevation.
Thanks in advance

I don't have a real clue what Llama used.
But I would be simply amazed if it was anything standard to American guns.

Prepare to be amazed. Most llama 1911 parts ARE standard and interchange with Colt 70-series. Major differences are grips and plunger tube.

Note the 11th item "rear sight".

There are several 1911 sight cuts, but I'd bet it's the same as a Government model uses.

Note that most of the target sights with elevation adjustment require additional slide cutting. Look at a Kimber Target for a common example. There may be a windage/elevation adjustable rear sight out there that will work with the stock front sight, but it would be a marvel of miniaturization.
