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 comes with a flat base that is optimal for use with a flat-topped slide or for those who intend to file and blend the front sight base to match the contour of their pistol's slide for a seamless installation. 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.

Gunsmith installation recommended

* Novak type front sight dovetails can vary in Depth between different manufacturers. Depth can be as shallow as 0.060" or as deep as 0.075". Because of these variances, fitting may be required for installation.

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.

    Flat base fiber optic front sight

    Posted by James D on 17th Nov 2023

    I had purchased a contoured base and a flat base fiber optic front sight. I wound up using the contoured base but this flat base will remain in my parts inventory for future use. It’s attractive, rugged, and well-made.

    Didn't work for me

    Posted by Michael on 26th Aug 2018

    Nothing wrong with the workmanship of the sight at all but i had to return it because it didnt fit my Remington R1 Enhanced at all. It was very loose in the Novak cut, too loose. You could slide it all the way through from either side. So i had to return it. Not sure if it was the sight or my pistol but the Remington dovetails are supposed to be cut to Novak im not sure

    Kensight Fiber Optic Front Sights

    Posted by Frank on 5th Jun 2014

    I recently had the Kensight fiber optic front sight pressed on to my Colt Gold Cup and could not be more pleased with this choice. Best sight for the dollar and quick and easy payment and shipping. Would definitely recommend to anyone, who inquired about them.
