    hello all, went to the range last night with my new RIA 1911A1. I really like it. shoots great and the trigger is not half bad. but when i put the target our past 10 yards it was hard to see the sights.. very small. what is a cheap upgrade for this pistol? can i do something like this myself? good smith to go too?

    did i mention cheap. :mad0079:

    In the world of 1911's. "cheap upgrade" is an oxymoron

    Google King's gun parts, they have some three dot sites that fit in place of the old GI type sites. The front one has to be re-staked and the rear just drifts in.

    If you want windage and elevation adjustability, then why not just get the target sights that use the "stock" dovetail?

    Well, maybe I don't know enough to contribute, but I thought sights like this didn't require modification...
