ROE Target sights POAPOI?

I believe the ROE Targets sights are POAPOI. With no dots to line up on the rear sight I have a question about alignment. Should the top of the front sight align with the rear with the dot cover the bullseye? Or does the top of the rear sight bisect the front sight dot?

I'm not a good enough shot to stay consistent while testing each alignment while trying to figure it out.

No real way to tell as the gun is in your hands, not mine. Can’t swap eyes either.
I suggest shooting it from a sandbag for a few mags and determine where you have to aim.
The original instant emergency response number.

From the Springfield 1911 owners manual:
Springfield Armory pistols are designed to use the “6 o’clock” sight picture at 25 yards. However, some pistols may shoot “point of aim” at 25 yards depending on shooter and ammunition.

If this is true then a six o'clock hold would be slightly low at say 7-10 yards, and probably closer to POA/POI at 7-10 yards.
Both of my Springfield 1911's (TRP & RO) seem to be pretty close to POA/POI at 10 yards right out of the box.

Dots or no Dots, line-up the top of the front sight even with the top of the rear sight. Rather you place the top of the sights at six o'clock or POA/POI depends on the gun, you, the distance you are shooting and the ammo you are using.
Simply put, spend some time shooting and getting to know your gun, and as previously mentioned, use a sand bag or a rest to take part of the human factor out of the equation. This will help to find where the pistol likes to be aimed.
I hope this answers some of your questions and helps a bit.
