    Had a question for the resident experts, if you have a 1911 with a bomar sight, are there any fixed sight alternatives that would fit instead?

    Is this a high-mount (base sits above the slide) or low-mount (the slide is cut out for the base and a new dovetail cut into the slide)?

    Heinie (IIRC) makes one. I did look at one for my Kimber after the fatory adjustable rear sight broke in half. :uhoh:

    I have one in the junk box in the shop that I turned into a fixed ghost ring rear sight but I have no idea who made it. Sorry I can't help with this one. I was just playing around and .......................................ooooppppss.

    fixed sight

    I put a set of Heine slant pros on my kimber target. These are possibly the best sights I have ever used.
