    Question RIA GI sight swap?

    I was wondering how hard it would be to swap out the standard GI sights on my RIA 1911 for a set of wilson combat three dot ones? Can it be done??

    The rear is usually pretty easy. The front sight may be pinned, if it is you should have a gunsmith do it. I would recommend getting the front dovetailed, itís a bit more expensive but it holds the sight well.
    Most people that have shot a lot of .45 in a pinned sight 1911 have come back down on target with the sight gone. Its an odd thing to have happen to you.

    I've changed the sights on 2 RIAs with 3 dots from Brownells. The front sight is narrow tenon and it is staked on. You can do it yourself with no problems or have a gunsmith do it. The sights were $35 no charge for installation as I did it myself...

    SEND YOUR SLIDE TO NOVAK'S IN WEST VIRGINIA & HAVE THEM MILL THE SLIDE & INSTALL A SET OF THEIR LOW PROFILE FRONT & REAR SIGHTS. I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED !!!!
    GO TO THEIR WEBSITE @ www.novakguns.com & check out all the combinations of fixed sight patterns they offer for our favorite pistol.
