Product Options


Longest, brightest fiber optic sight on the market.  Comes with red 0.060” diameter fiber optic insert and includes three inches of each red, green, and yellow replacement fiber optic rod.

Kimber/Novak dovetail cut is 0.330x0.075x65 degrees.  Center of dovetail is 0.320 back from front of slide.  Available in several heights:  0.150, 0.160, 0.175, 0.200, and 0.240.  The 0.200 height is generally used with an adjustable rear sight on a flat-topped slide.  If your slide has not been flat-topped, the 0.175" height will likely be better.  For a fixed rear sight, measure the highest point of your current front sight (side closest to you) and select the sight with the height closest to this measurement.  

A higher front sight (than your current sight) will shoot lower on the target.  If your gun is currently shooting high, select a higher front sight; if it is shooting low, select a lower front sight.  For a 6-inch sight radius, a change in front sight height of 0.010 inches (from a 0.150 height to a 0.160 height) produces a change in impact of 1.5 inches at 25 yards. The formula is: (sight radius(in feet) x desired change in impact of bullet (in inches) divided by (sight in range) = change in height of sight. For this example: (0.5x1.5) divided by (75 feet) = 0.010 inches.  Remember, higher sights shoot lower and lower sights shoot higher if you keep the rear sight the same.
