Having been a service rifle competitor for too many years, I have learned to carry some basic tools and parts in my travels. In all honesty, the last thing I would want to do while either competing or carrying, is to take my first line pistol out of service due to a broken front sight. I would have no problems fitting and replacing a sight in the field. Might Ruger CS provide a spare front sight on request for field repairs, or would they require the slide be returned for sight replacement?

Thanks in advance for your opinions!
I thought Ruger had corrected this problem years ago.
I got my SR1911 in 2012 and at 500 rounds my front sight fell off.

I considered sending it back to Ruger under warranty but the better solution was to put Novak Night sights on it.
It's been fine ever since
