    rock island night sights

    can someone please give me a review or direct me to one of the factory night sights available on RIA 1911s. I'm planning on buying a 2011 model soon and was wondering if their night sights are worth the extra cost( 80-90 dollars).


    thanks

    Can you post some close up pictures of the new Front sight,from different angles, do you have a .015'' gap between the front sight base and he slide? Thanks, AL.

    You may have bent the sear pin, if you did it may not work right, get a new pin, put it in, like always, then raise the Right side safety straight up, now put it in the thumb hole, now just lower it, making sure the shelf is in the groove,
    now put the Left side safety in, lining up the two, now press,
    hard you can tell when it is seated, you should be good to go. take it back apart in reverse order.
