Product Description

Kensight Springfield ® White Dot Rear, Serrated Blade W/ 0.230'' Tall White Dot CONTOURED base front

Kensight Gun Sights are used as original equipment for many of today's top manufacturers. This Kensight Springfield Rear Sight is Fully Adjustable for both Windage and Elevation, and is an ideal low profile sight upgrade for a concealed carry pistol due to its thoroughly dehorned exterior with no sharp edges to cut hands or catch on clothing during the draw stroke. The rear sight body is Wire-EDM machined from 4140 Chrome Moly Steel that is then heat treated to a hardness of RC 38-40, ensuring tight part-to-part fit and long-lasting durability. Click-adjustments are positive and precise, allowing for reliable and consistent point of impact changes.

This Kensight Springfield Rear Sight is equipped with a Partially Serrated Slanted Blade for reduced glare, and incorporates a High Visibility White Dot on either side of the sight notch that helps to funnel the shooter's attention toward the front sight post. This rear sight fits the popular Novak LoMount rear sight dovetail cut, often found on many factory-produced and custom 1911 pistols. Fits certain model Springfield Armory, Colt, Wilson Combat, STI International, Les Baer Custom, Rock River Arms, Dan Wesson 1911s and many others.

This rear sight comes paired with our standard white dot contoured front sight with a serrated blade. For this front sight, blade heights from 0.150'' to 0.220'' are available upon request. Compatible with Novak type front sight dovetail cuts (0.340" x 60° x 0.075") as typically found on both customized and factory 1911 pistols.

Novak® LoMount™ Dovetail Sight CutNovak Sight Installed

The Novak® LoMount™ dovetail is a somewhat standard dovetail sight cut found on many popular factory-fitted (OEM) and custom platforms. The Kensight® DAS™ (Defensive Adjustable Sights) and DFS™ (Defensive Fixed Sights) are the perfect low profile upgrade for your concealed carry, or combat carry pistols, due to a smooth, thoroughly "dehorned", low-profile exterior. The benefit of this feature is there are no sharp edges to cut hands or catch on clothing during the draw stroke which compliments your concealed carry or defensive style 1911. This particular sight will only fit an existing Novak® LoMount™ 1911 dovetail. If you unsure of your current dovetail configuration and would like to know more about dovetail styles, click the button below.

Add The Optional Front Sight

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, other OEM manufactures have adopted this same size for their 1911 platform. There are two basic configurations of the “standard” front sight base. 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. We recommend that you check your existing front sight dovetail dimensions, before purchasing the standard front sight.

DAS™ Suggested Front Sight Height

The front sight height will greatly vary depending on your rear sight selection. Most of the Kensight DAS˜ (Defensive Adjustable Sights) will require a front sight height of 0.190” - 0.200” tall. We ship most of our DAS sight sets with the recommended 0.200” tall front sight. In some cases your existing front sight may work, but this could limit the amount of elevation adjust-ability in the rear sight. If you would like to learn more about front sight heights, visit our Front Sight Height Guide.
