My point is, here we are 40 years later and Glock is still putting the same cheap $.50 cent sights on their supposedly first-rate handguns. They do it because half of buyers are too dumb or inexperienced to understand the need for decent sights, and the other half are Glock geeks who will replace them with their favorite aftermarket sights anyway.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
