Springfield® Dovetail ProGlo - Tritium Night Sight w/Lumi GREEN Outline, Beveled Flat BaseKensight Sights
Springfield® Armory ProGlo™ style Ramped Front Night Sight. These highly visible front sights incorporate a self-illuminating Green Tritium Dot nestled within a bright Lumi Green outline. The perfect combination that glows brightly in both low light and well-lit conditions. This is accomplished with the optimal color contrast between the front sight in ProGlo™ Lumi Green color, and a rear tritium sight with Arctic White outlines, or your basic black serrated target rear sight. Based on studies and reviews, the extreme contrast helps quickly draw the shooter's eye to the front post, which allows quicker sight alignment and target acquisition.
This Front Night Sight comes equipped with a 0.118" wide blade and a beveled flat base. Compatible with Springfield type front sight dovetail cut (0.340" x 60 Degree x 0.075")
Used on Springfield (1911's, EMP’s and some Range Officers), some model Colts and Dan Wesson’s that were made prior to January 2015 (the first two digits in the serial number are the year of manufacture). PLEASE MEASURE YOUR FRONT DOVETAIL BEFORE ORDERING. This front does not come standard in any sight set.

Standard Dovetail - Flat Base vs Contoured Base
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, some OEM manufactures have adopted this same size for their 1911 platform.
However, other 1911 platforms such as Springfield®, Colts, and Dan Wesson have a propitiatory dovetail. We offer two basic configurations of front sight bases. 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. Please check your existing front sight dovetail dimensions, before purchasing the Springfield front dovetail sight.
