Rock island Sights replacement




Hello fellow 1911 Armscor owners!

I have a Rock Island compact officer's model (older roll mark style with GI sights) that I would like to replace it with my take off's from my full size tactical model. I know that I have to send out my slide to get em' cut down to Novak specs.

I call Armscor (NV) and they are not accepting any custom work untill their new shop is done, and they are only accepting warranty work untill then.
I also called Novak and they said they cannot do my front slide due to armscor front sight being much narrower. But I can still get em cut but I have to buy thier particular sights.

So I'm stuck, any suggestions? I really don't want to be paying too much

You can find lots of sights to fit your pistol without milling your slide. try Fusion Firearms I used these on my CS....

I read that a certain, higly purchased nite site mfg is about to change their spec's for their nite sites, read it some where, but it now fails me where so I could link it....but the read went on to say, do not have your slides cut now, that in the future, the sites would be too small and you can not put back what you remove?

Just food for thought.
