    Hi all.
    Can some one tell me the differense between the dovetaill of a Colt 1911-A1 and a serie 70, 80, and 90 dovetaill?
    Looking to buy a LPA TPU rear sight but don't know wich one to order.
    Thanks in advance and greetings from Amsterdam.

    I don't think there is a difference in the dovetail. I think the difference in the LPA rear sights is whether they are meant to work with the very low M1911A1 front sight, or the more recent higher/taller, 1991 style front sight.
