Never had a problem with any of my Novaks.

Novaks are pretty snag free.

10-8 work well too.

Novaks it is.

It only took 22 rounds from my Combat Elite for a dot to fall out of my Novaks.

Call Colt, either they will take care of it, or Novak will; both are excellent companies. Oh, and good choice on the Combat Elite

I've actually found that the top-rear of the sight blade on the 10-8 grabs clothing frequently as it's a sharper edge than Novak's sights.

I prefer Novaks on my 1911s

All depends on how you run it. For instance, I find the 10-8 works better for over the top one-handed sling shot loading than the Novak. I run the Novaks, but the 10-8 work as well.

Either Novaks or the Trijicon Copy.

On a 1991A1 you will have to get either the stake in front sight, or have someone mill a dovetail for the front sight. It's getting very difficult these days to find a gunsmith willing to stake a sight, most want to mill.

I've run both, including the Novaks on one 5 day class that was to say the least...very tough on the gun and the shooter. A few thousand reps will shed light on your gear; what works and what won't.

I found the Novaks to be a fine sight. Nothing fell off and it was easy to get on them.

The reason why I switched all my carry guns to the 10-8/Yost-Bonitz configuration is because of the one handed drills. It was more difficult to index the ejection port than it was on the sight ledge.

I've never felt either sight snagging to the point where it interfered with the drawstroke.

I'm talking about strictly hiding it under a t-shirt IWB. It performs perfectly, it's just that the top edge grabs my shirts more creating more of a profile than the Novaks did. It still draws just fine, I just found it to print slightly more. My one carry gun has a 10-8 that replaced a Novak rear. That's about the only thing I can fault it for.

A hub cap fell off a Chevy that I once owned. I'll never buy abother one.

If you carry the gun then you may have to use the gun. It that case I prefer a practical sight that allows me to rack the slide with one hand. Something like a 10-8 or a Heinie Ledge sight is my preference. I have both and have no snag issues.
