'70 Series Colt 1911A1 Tenon Staked Patridge Front Night SightKensight Sights
The M1911-A1 Series 70 tritium front night sight is a direct replacement for the Colt Series '70 Gold Cup pistol.
This sight has what is called a patridge style blade. It is ideal for target shooting because the rear of the blade is completely vertical. This gives the shooter a better sight picture because there is virtually no glare from the sun and there is a good contrast between it and the rear sight. This front works perfectly with any of our Elliason and Accro rear sights.
The blade is 0.210" tall x 0.118" wide and has a 0.56" tenon to fit a '70 Series Colt. The green tritium insert is made and installed by Trijicon, is 0.077" in diameter and it has a bright white outline painted around it.
Please note that this sight it made to pair with SOME of the Kensight adjustable rears. These include the Bo-Mar®, Rollo™, LPA®, and ELEVATION ONLY adjustable DAS™ (Novak®) sights. It will not work with any fixed or adjustable MIL-SPEC rears. If you have a fixed MIL-SPEC, the height required is .150" tall (Kensight will offer this size by the end of August 2017). If you have an adjustable MIL-SPEC, the front height required is a MINIMUM of .350" tall (Kensight does not offer the .350" tall front in a night sight).
BE CAREFUL ON THE INSTALL! The tritium tube inside of the sight IS GLASS and it can break.
BEFORE INSTALLATION - Inspect sight(s) immediately to verify that the tritium lamp is functioning. Any warranty claims for broken or dim tritium lamp(s) must be made prior to installation on your firearm. We will not be held responsible for breakage of tritium lamp(s) during the installation process. If you feel that the tritium lamp(s) in your sight is dim or non-functional in any way, you must contact our customer service department for warranty exchange or replacement before you attempt to install the sight, otherwise the warranty will be denied. No exceptions.

Our sights are Wire-EDM machined from a single billet of 4140 chrome-moly steel. The result is a precision sight built with better materials and the Wire-EDM construction ensures the tightest tolerances possible.

This is the second tenon sight I've purchased for customers's guns. They are solid built, precision sized, and the customer's really like them. Good illumination. I wouldn't try installing one without a proper jig, to protect the tritium vial...
