This Kensight Competition Front Sight incorporates a bright, light gathering fiber optic rod that naturally draws the shooter's eye to the front post for quicker initial sight acquisition and faster sight recovery from shot-to-shot. In order to ensure the strength and integrity of their front sights, Kensight wire-EDM machines them from 4140 chrome moly steel and then heat treats the completed parts to a hardness of RC 38-40.

This competition front sight comes equipped with a 0.100" or 0.118" wide blade that is partially serrated for reduced glare. The 0.060" diameter fiber optic rod is protected by a unique front sight blade shape featuring a series of cutouts along the top and sides that allow the rod to gather ambient light while also shielding the fragile fiber optic tube from potentially damaging impacts. This sight's contoured base blends in nicely with most round-top or "carry melted" slide profiles, resulting in a clean looking installation that requires little (if any) filing to accomplish. Compatible with Novak type front sight dovetail cuts (0.330" x 65 degree x 0.075") as typically found on both customized and factory 1911 pistols.

Authentic Kensight ® Sights - The Professional's Choice

This is an authentic Kensight ® sight, and not to be confused with other brands. When it comes to durability, and features the Kensight® sights far exceed our competitors. 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 translates to ultra-smooth adjustments, audible clicks for both windage and elevation, and consistent dovetail dimensions in which the "industry standard" CNC construction cannot compete. Backed by our Limited Lifetime Warranty, Kensight 1911 sights are premium quality and the first choice for factory-fit OEM manufactures, competition shooters and professional's worldwide.

    decent site... somethings fall short

    Posted by Alex on 25th May 2018

    Received my sights about a week ago and finally got to put them on. The adjustable Lpa cut rear fit my Springfield 1911 with very little fitting and was a quality sight. I decided on this front sight because the contour fits my slide perfectly. I am use to sights arriving pretty over size but this one didn't come as big as I would like and fittment worries me a little bit. Also the pin for my Springfield doesn't line up with the pin on the front of the sight and lastly both fiber optic rods supplied are too short which basically added more wait time to finishing up the install. Reply By Kensight: This is not the correct sight for your Springfield. This is our "standard" front sight with dovetail dimensions of .330x65 Degrees. Springfield front sights are .350x60 Degrees. This is why you were experiancing the fitment issues.

    Fit great and enjoy the contour base

    Easy fit due to proper machine by Kensight. Usually just a few file strokes to get them on nicely. I like using the 1/16 vertical hole, most of my guns have that from the factory /builder. The contoured base blends real nice on round top pistols, it's a great option.

    High quality, premium grade.

    Great sight overall. The build and finish were top notch. The only con was the sight dovetail was just undersized creating a non-interference fit.

    Quality product. Slightly oversized allowing for a perfect fit with slight filing.

    I like to spend my money on quality products, not junk. Thats what I got with Kensight. Following my purchase I had an opportunity to contact their customer service dept. and I was very impressed with how they responded.
