Is there really a difference with Dawson Precision® sights? You bet there is!

While other sights give off a hazy glow making it difficult to focus, Dawson Precision® sights offer you the sharpest picture. We counterbore the blade so the optic is recessed. This subtle difference focuses the light in the sight making it not only brighter, but clearer. A fully cradled optic provides a longer optic lifespan.

  • Counter Bored Optic Keeps Sight Picture Clear and Bright
  • Dark Shadow Serrations Blackout Blade and Enhance Optic
  • Extra Optic Included - Both Red and Green
  • Easy to Install - Tools and Instructions Included
  • Also Fits these Colt® Pistol Models: 1991A1, XSE, and .45 Rail Gun

  1. Fits the CZ 40B

    If you own a CZ 40B you must have this front sight! The .200 tall X .100 wide is a perfect match for the OEM rear sight. What a difference this front sight makes in comparison to the OEM front sight!

    having fiber optic sights on all my match pistols, I pretty much have to have them on my carry pistols too. Just makes for quicker acquisition. The Dawson sights are top quality, I've never damaged one, and in fact I don't think I've even replaced the fiber in one yet either, so that part of the sight is not likely to be damaged either. Thanks for including the aluminum punch (now I have more than a few).

  5. Outstanding front sight

    I mated this FO front sight .125width with a plan black rear sight .156 width on my Colt Combat Elite for action pistol competitions and its outstanding! For me the red FO stands out like a beacon .
    Minor fitting required, Punch included makes life easy.

  6. FO front sight Colt Defender

    The new sight takes a lot of fitting to get it to mount, but once it's done , you have a fine , fast acquisition , front sight. I have put Dawson sights on about 8 pistols so far, and have been happy with them all. On most pistols, I remove the optic, ream out the hole and install a larger optic ( .060" ) . So far with the Colt Defender , I'm sticking with the original optic rod.
