The M1911-A1 Series 70 tritium front night sight is a direct replacement for the Colt Series '70 Gold Cup pistol. This sight has what is called a patridge style blade. It is ideal for target shooting because the rear of the blade is completely vertical. This gives the shooter a better sight picture because there is virtually no glare from the sun and there is a good contrast between it and the rear sight. This front works perfectly with any of our Elliason and Accro rear sights. The blade is 0.215" tall x 0.117" wide and has a 0.056" tenon to fit the '70 Series Colt. The green tritium insert is made and installed by Trijicon, is 0.077" in diameter and it has a bright white outline painted around it.
BE CAREFUL ON THE INSTALL! The tritium tube inside of the sight IS GLASS and it can break.
BEFORE INSTALLATION - Inspect sight(s) immediately to verify that the tritium lamp is functioning. Any warranty claims for broken or dim tritium lamp(s) must be made prior to installation on your firearm.

If you feel that the tritium lamp(s) in your sight is dim or non-functional in any way, you must contact our customer service department for warranty exchange or replacement before you attempt to install the sight, otherwise the warranty will be denied. No exceptions. International shipping not available on this product.
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTES: Please be sure you are purchasing the correct sight for your existing slide dovetail. If you are unsure of your factory dovetail dimensions, call the manufacture or do some research to be sure this is the correct sight for your dovetail cut. There are a lot of Forums around the internet that will be able to help with this information as well.
THE SIGHT WILL NOT JUST "SLIDE IN" TO EXISTING DOVETAILS. DO NOT FILE ON YOUR SLIDE! Kensight sight dovetails are slightly oversized to provide a factory fit. The actual sight dovetails are larger than your existing slide cut, and this is intentional. Each manufacture has slightly different tolerances on the slide dovetail dimensions. The Kensight sight oversized dovetail will need to be filed and fitted to your particular slide dovetail size. We recommend installation from a competent Gunsmith.
