Description

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, DP 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.

    I've gotten several front sights from Dawson, along with other 1911 accessories, and all of their products are excellent. The high quality workmanship is evident and the fit and finish is top notch too. Easy installation with the included sight tool and long term durability under heavy use will keep me coming back to Dawson Precision when I need parts.

    My local dealer turned me on to these sites 16yrs ago and I have been putting them on all my pistols, whether I am using them for competition or just target shooting. They are very exact and fit your pistol as if factory as long as you order the right size ones. Makes my old eyes happy to see that red ball on the end of my barrel. LOL Thanks Dave

    Great product and easy install, needed to take a bit of the sight before the tap in to the slide, but that's the way you want it. Great company to deal with have bought many products thru the years and always a pleasure to deal with.

  5. Customer Service is a product too!

    This front sight for my STI is truly a precision product and the pricing makes it a real value purchase. The installation tool included is an extra added bonus and although I have a "sight pusher" tool I used the Dawson tool as instructed and it worked just fine and did so with out any complicated setup. If you have a vise, you are good to go. This brings me to what I think is the real value at Dawson, their customer service. I made several phone calls to them prior to purchasing the sight to make sure I was ordering the correct sight (width, height, etc.) and they could not have been more patient and helpful in directing me to the correct item. Those conversations and the installation video on their web sight resulted in an installation process that was straight forward and a weapon that now shoots where I want it to shoot. Very squared away outfit that I highly recommend to shooters of all disciplines.

    They make it easy to select the best sight for your pistol and it cones with great instructions and a tool to install. My when on easily and I only had to adjust my rear sight a couple clicks to get it dead on. Extremely happy with the purchase and install.

  7. Simply the best

    As I have gotten older, for some reason, my black front sights aren't as crisp and clear as they used to be. Well, Dawson fiber optic fronts are crystal. Not only that, but I love the ability to go with a thinner blade. I'm up to 4 of these things and with the exception of tritium sights on my duty Glocks, they are all I will use from now on.

  8. Finally I can see my front sight.

    I installed this fine front sight after using the great sight selection tool here online. I viewed the appropriate video for installation that Dawson has posted. I chose to use my Wheeler Sight installation pusher instead of a hammer and the provided punch. The sight did require me to fit it using a file; oversized as stated on the website and in the video. This sight was installed on my STI Lawman 3.0. My 64 year old eyes had difficulty with the black on black square front sight at the range. This solves that concern and I could not be happier. This is my 2nd sight from Dawson and they are my go to for fiber optics. They are built tank tough and bright as can be. Thank-you for the opportunity to share some praise.

    I have these on all my 1911's, they work great and easy replacement of fiber. I bought these to replace the one
    I broke while abusing my weapon when it got tangled up in a barricade at a match. Great sites, recommend them, especially
    for us older folks that need a little help seeing the sites.
