Kensight (DFS) 1911 Sights Fixed Rear Combat Sight, Artic White Dot, Recessed Blade - Fits Novak LoMount Sight Dovetail CutKensight Sights
Another variation of our popular Novak Style Defensive Fixed Sight, featuring two Artic white recessed dots. Wire-EDM cut from a solid block of 4140 steel, not to be confused with other sights that are metal injection-molded (MIM) or investment cast.
This Defensive Fixed Sight (DFS) has distinctive grasping serrations, large relief cut for an excellent silhouetted sight picture. This rear sight fits the popular Novak LoMount rear sight dovetail cut, often found on many factory-produced and custom 1911 pistols.
Novak® LoMount™ Dovetail Sight Cut
The Novak® LoMount™ dovetail is a somewhat standard dovetail sight cut found on many popular factory-fitted (OEM) and custom platforms. The Kensight® DAS™ (Defensive Adjustable Sights) and DFS™ (Defensive Fixed Sights) are the perfect low profile upgrade for your concealed carry, or combat carry pistols, due to a smooth, thoroughly "dehorned", low-profile exterior. The benefit of this feature is there are no sharp edges to cut hands or catch on clothing during the draw stroke which compliments your concealed carry or defensive style 1911. This particular sight will only fit an existing Novak® LoMount™ 1911 dovetail.

Add The Optional Front Sight
A front sight with dovetail dimensions of 0.330" (Width) x 65° (Angle) x 0.075" (Depth) has become known as a “standard” front sight in the industry. While these were first seen on 1911 slides with the Novak LoMount rear sight, other OEM manufactures have adopted this same size for their 1911 platform. There are two basic configurations of the “standard” front sight base. One is the “Flat Base” style and the other is the “Contoured Base”. The dovetail dimensions are both the same, so the base selection is a personal preference depending on the profile on the top of your 1911 slide. We recommend that you check your existing front sight dovetail dimensions, before purchasing the standard front sight.
DAS™ Suggested Front Sight Height
The front sight height will greatly vary depending on your rear sight selection. Most of the Kensight DAS˜ (Defensive Adjustable Sights) will require a front sight height of 0.190” - 0.200” tall. We ship most of our DAS sight sets with the recommended 0.200” tall front sight. In some cases your existing front sight may work, but this could limit the amount of elevation adjust-ability in the rear sight. If you would like to learn more about front sight heights, visit our Front Sight Height Guide.

For iron sights, I only use Kensight. They are machined from steel and are not MIMs; therefore, do not deform when being installed. In short, they are high quality.
Well made. Required some fitting.
Works perfectly. Gunsmith was able to save my old 1911 slide with the mounting of this rear sight. Very happy with this purchase.
