View Full Version : Fitting A 1911 Front Sight?

Trijicon front staked sights for a Commanders come with either a wide or narrow tenon.

They claim the overall sight dimensions are identical.

So, if one used the correct tenon width on a 70 Series Commander, how does one "fit" the sight to eliminate the gap shown below?

Or is that just the nature of the beast when installing aftermarket sights?

(The slide itself is original and unmodified)

Thanks for the lesson.

That is wrong. The sight might need hand fitting before staking.
