Damn, all I thought one needed to change the "site" on a 1911 was a pair of legs, minimum?

Staying with the same model? Some sights require special cuts.

Ok sorry SIGHTS Gees

Anyway I want to put targets on my full size springfield from novaks and then put the novaks on my older ultra compact springfield.

Make sure you match the sights you want to buy with the same angle dovetail, and same width dovetail that your original slghts have. If not, you will have to take the gun to a gunsmith to have the new sight cuts made. Then you also have to refinish the gun.
You should be able to buy drop-in sights for whatever model 1911 you have.
Best of luck,

Novak makes an adjustable sight now, last I heard.

I believe Springfield sells an adj. sight for the Novak cut. Not for sure though.
