    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)?

    fixed sight

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