    After playing around with my SRP, i realized i dont like the sights at all. Mine has the night sights with metallic rings around them. They are really distracting.

    I want a plain black fixed rear sight. Besides the 10-8 that everyone seems to like, are there any other good options? Thanks.

    Harrisons rear sight looks pretty good as well as PW's Tier one..

    Heinie Ledge rear sight...for the most part, sight's are similar. I prefer the 10-8 for the U-notch rather than the other's that have a square notch.
     
  4. Was debating between the 10-8 and the HD, but went with another 10-8.

    I'm having a Harrison put on mine. Basically from what I can tell, it's the exact same as the 10-8, except the circle vs. square cut.

    Me too on the U...if you don't like Harrison or 10-8, maybe Warren.

    I like the Novak plain black .145" notch myself. Works well with a Baer tritium front.

    I had that setup on a LB Custom Carry.

    I just tried another 10-8 on my Springfield and I like 'em until I get outside. The serrations catch my eye, where the smooth Novak kinda disappears.

    The Harrison is cut deeper than the Heinie. Some people don't like that but I have taken a liking to it. There are some other minor differences.

    are there any options for the colt standard dovetail besides the GI type ? Everything i've found require the slide to be milled... which i'd rather avoid...

    Something along the lines of a novak low mount or even the 10-8... would like something carry friendly with a plain or serrated face, no dots...

    the Nowlin lowrider rear sight is what you are looking for. Looks like a Novak, but no milling of the slide.

    Thank you Quack... Im gonna look into that one, i like it alot more then the GI's i've found although I like the harrison if i had to go the GI route... i forgot that i did see the novak that fit the colt but it looked horrible...

    I've also been playing with the idea of trying your infamous Quack trigger since i doubt i'll ever run into one in the WV area

    You might want to look at an Heirloom Retro as well.

    It seems that they have stopped making them ? And i saw that 10-8 makes something similar to it but it doesnt say that it will fit the factory dovetail...
