Does anyone know of a non adjustable FIXED sight with tritium??? I have been looking and cant find shit...

I found a bomar cut fixed sight, but no tritium, and all the bomar cuts with tritium i find are adjustable...

Just to clarify something real quick, the LPA-cut sight and a Bomar-cut sight are NOT the same. I'm not sure if this is for your TRP Operator, but if it is, the LPA-cut won't fit it.

Here is the Harrison HD-001 for a Bomar rear sight cut: http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=26360/Product/1911_AUTO_HD_001_REAR_SIGHT

If you want tritium lamps in it, the only way I know to get them is to order direct from John Harrison. He will install the lamps in any configuration you want for $45 per lamp. That's what I did

I would like to find something a little more combat usable to replace the rear sight of my Springfield loaded target. I have seen the harrison fixed sight replacement for my LPA cut rear sight and might end up with that. I would like to keep the adjustable option though.

The rear blade on my pistol has sharp corners. If I could even find a rear blade replacement that isn't so... Big...

Trijicon makes nice stuff, but they don't make anything to fit a Bomar sight cut. Neither does Heinie or Novak. Harrison is pretty much the only option.

Oops, skipped over the title and just read the OP text. Fully agree with Harrison being it to my knowledge on the Bomar cut.

They make this thing called a "file" - its kinda like a rasp, except its for metal. It works real good for removing metal to round sight blade corners, etc....

That is something I am familiar with Was hoping to avoid that and find an adjustable combat sight that was tougher than what is on there.

I have not seen many Bomars break. If I was really worried about it I would just replace the roll pin with a solid pin. That should stop it.

The solid pin on my TRP Operator started coming out after my first 50rds. I'm sure Springfield would have replaced it, but I just don't have much faith in adjustable sights on any gun that might see hard use. Plus the TRP sight is made-in-China crap to begin with

Norinco 1911 is made in china, and it is tough as nails....besides, your only two spot welds or drops of super glue away from a "fixed" sight, if that is really what you want. As hard as ammo is to get, I would think long and hard before giving up the ability to zero to a different load....

when i first got mine the same pin would walk out after 50 rounds as well, took it out, put it on a pice of wood, used a punch to put a slight bow in it for more tension, put it back, has not moved since, over 3k rounds later...

i thought the adjustables that came on the springfield were novak? they are made in china? maybe they arnt novak, i could be totaly worng...

eather way, i took a long look last night, thought about it, and i think i am going to leave them, after the pin fix they have been true and solid, and the tritium has many years left, might as well just leave them for now, and nice point whoever said about adjusting to different loads...

maybe when the tritium lamps burn out ill go to fixed, but for now i think ill just save the money...

but thanks for the responces guys, and now at least i know the option is out there and i know where to get them too!

The TRP Operator rear sight is made by Champion, which is made in China. They make a lot of Novak knock-off sights. Here is a link to the same sight, SA just puts their logo on them. They are pretty well made, and not all China stuff is junk by any means. If yours is holding up I wouldn't worry about it. I just prefer fixed sights on most of my handguns. http://www.championgunsights.com/proddetail.asp?prod=860%2D093
