Para Sight Dovetail Dimensions

There seems to be a lot of wondering in regards to our Sight Dove Tail Dimensions, so we thought it might be a good idea to post them in the hopes that the moderator will make a sticky for all persons looking for this information.

Our Rear Sight Dovetail on all models is Standard 0.375" 30 degrees
Our Front Sight Dovetail on all models is Standard 0.250" 20 degrees

Since the original 1911 design called for a simple blade rear sight, and a staked front sight, there are no "standard" or "mil-spec" Sight Dovetail dimensions. The dimensions we are using are very common, and if the industry were to somehow select a "standard", these dimensions would be the logical choice since many Sight Manufacturers are already utilizing them.
