Kensight '80 Series Colt 1911A1 Tenon Staked Patridge Front Night Sight
The M1911-A1 Series 80 tritium front night sight is a direct replacement for the Colt Series '80 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 0.210" tall x 0.118" wide and has a 0.125" tenon to fit an '80 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.
Please note that this sight it made to pair with SOME of the Kensight adjustable rears. These include the Bo-Mar®, Rollo™, LPA®, and ELEVATION ONLY adjustable DAS™ (Novak®) sights. It will not work with any fixed or adjustable MIL-SPEC rears. If you have a fixed MIL-SPEC, the height required is .150" tall (Kensight will offer this size by the end of August 2017). If you have an adjustable MIL-SPEC, the front height required is a MINIMUM of .350" tall (Kensight does not offer the .350" tall front in a night sight).
BE CAREFUL ON THE INSTALL! The tritium tube inside of the sight IS GLASS and it can break.
