    are the gi sights on the 1911 integral?

    IIRC, the front sight should be staked in place and the rear should be dovetailed.

    But I could be mistaking them for one of the other variants.

    Not much help, I guess.:banghead:

    GunNut is correct.

    The front sight is staked, but can be removed and replaced by your gunsmith or yourself if you have the tools and patience.

    The rear sight is dovetailed and there are aftermarket sight made to fit the cut, although not as many as for other cuts such as Bo-Mar, for example.

    I was wondering because I like the kimber rcp but think it would be much better with a laser max so me and a couple buddies deided to try and make a 5inch model of the gun but it would be eaiser to just grind down sights that are integral rather then make a piece to fill the void in the gun left by the sights.
