Product Description

Kensight Standard Fronts - Fiber Optic Blade Flat Base

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.

  1. 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.
