Is the Auto-Ordnance 1911-A1 good for Wild Bunch

10-8 and Harrison both make fixed 1911 sights which are Traditional legal by name in the rule book.  I run 10-8 NM (National Match) model.  10-8 does not have a big selection of 1911 front sights (last time I looked they only had fiber optic sight blades with a Novak size base).  So, I had a smith make a custom dovetailed front sight and dovetail the slide for it.  That also is legal by rules.  Each 1911 model CAN have some variation to the front sight mounting system.  If you are not set to cut dovetails yourself in 1911 slides, it really is a job for a pistol smith, which our Boggus Deal is one.


Many folks find that when they try to STAKE on a new taller front sight on a slide originally made with a staking slot, that the weight of the new blade shakes it loose from the staking.  Yes, I was one of those folks.  The dovetail system is SO much more solid and reliable.


good luck, GJ
