    I was not happy with the front sight on my 1911-22 so I had it removed. I took it to a gunsmith had a slot machined to accommodate the Colt 1911 Optical sight sold on e-bay. I purchased the .165 optical sight to keep the sight lower on the slide. I then ground the stake in order to allow the barrel to be assembled in the slide. I then glued the front sight into place with top of the line two part 3m metal construction adhesive. I am looking forward to taking it to the range.

    Open a free Imgur account and upload your photos. Then select a picture and copy the link. Come here, select the picture icon above, and paste the link there. Easier to do than to say.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] It looks like I may have figured it out. This gun is my daily carry. This is the red fiber optic sight I installed on my Browning 1911-22. I know there has been a lot of dis-satisfied owners with the front sight on the 1911-22 . This is one option and I am sure there may be other ways to improve the front sight. I tried painting the original one and was not satisfied with it, I don't want to be searching for the front sight when the s--t hit the fan. https://imgur.com/BeJ7c6O https://i.imgur.com/sSYVLyk.jpg
