Ruger SR 1911 Night Sights




Just an FYI for those wanting to put night sights on their Ruger SR 1911s.
I prefer a night sight only in front so that is all I changed. When I called Novac to inquire as to the recommended front sight height for the factory-installed Novac rear sight the man I spoke to was unsure but told me he thought it was the .180. Well, when I got home and measured the sight, that was incorrect. The correct sight as ordered from Midway is #254169. The correct height is .215
