Commander 04691 OEM front sight help


Front sight flew away at the range today. It was one with a dot. I want to replace with same OEM type.

I measured the tenon and it is .125." Not sure if I need .175" or .180" height for poa=poi. I hate 6 O'Clock hold.

Any advice besides calling Colt?

Thanks in advance.


Called Colt. Based on s/n, .125 wide by .180 high.

Once you have the part find a local gunsmith to stake it on. Unless you are handy enough and have the tools. Good luck.
