So I recently acquired a really nice SA Trophy Match 1911 in stainless for target shooting. Going to try a little IDPA shooting as well. The thing is, I think I would want a fiber optic front sight to go with the adjustable rear target sights but the front sight is a post. My gunsmith can't find / doesn't think a FO front sight replacement is available without cutting a dovetail. Question is : Do I cut the slide or not ???? Part of me doesn't want to alter the character of the pistol by putting it under the saw but part of me thinks a could shoot it and enjoy it more putting the red dot on the target. Thoughts? FYI. This is my first 1911 so I am probably over-emphasizing the importance of maintaining the integrity. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
