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.

  • FITS Smith & Wesson® 1911 Pro Series® and Performance Center® Gen2 pistols.
  • Counter Bored Optic: Keeps sight picture CLEAR and BRIGHT.

  1. Quality

    Wish Smith put this on factor,much thinner and fiber optic great

  2. FO front sight

    Posted by Dave Hoffman on Dec 23rd 2018

    Quality worthy of a '5', of course, but I would like to see an option for 1.5mm FO rod also. I find it easier to pick up. Hopefully I can drill the sight out. I'll be calling.

  3. Tack Driver

    The sight went on my S&W Performance Center 45 w/o/ a hitch. Now that I can clearly see the front sight, it is a tack driver !

  4. Perfect

    As usual - I have Dawson products on more than 10 guns. All are flawless.

  5. fiber optic sight

    Posted by Terry on Jul 14th 2018

    had it installed by my gunsmith, but in a .38super to 9mm conversion on my Performance Center 1911, dead center POA on first shot and sight acquisition was incredible.

  6. Very good, first rate.

    I always get a quality product from Dawsons. Fast turn around and free shipping. Highly recommended.

  7. fiber optic front sight

    the S&W 1911 tactical I installed this on has it's dove tail but with a little file work pressed in smoothly and made customer very happy

  8. A MUST for action shooting

    Posted by Trung on May 23rd 2017

    The stock SW1911 front sight is a whopping 0.150", which almost completely fills the rear notch, and it's solid black to boot. I suppose that that might be suitable for some applications, but for action shooting, it makes it very hard to find the front sight most times.
    I chose the Dawson 0.100" with fiber optic, and it's completely changed how I "look" at the gun :) The quality is top-notch Dawson. Just be patient fitting it and only take a small amount of material off at a time.

  9. Fantastic Sight

    Requires fitting so be sure you have everything you need and be patient. I wasn't and buggered mine up a bit but that was my fault. The sight is awesome, and I love the tight tolerance of the fiber optic being so close to the top of the sight that you don't have a large deviation between top of sight and where Fiber Optic begins.

    Very bright, really stands out and your eye keys on it quickly. Ordered a much narrower sight then the factory blade, it allows more precision with quicker sight acquisition. Definitely a must for any serious shooter.

    The sight installed was for my Smith&Wesson 1911 Performance Center 5" barreled Pistol.
