Title says it all. If so where can I get them for a springfield?

I do not believe these are made. To my knowledge, you can go with night sights or FO, but there is not a combo.
BTW...After attending some night IPSC shoots here in Houston last spring, I found my 1911 with green FO front sight really sucks in low light conditions. It is very hard to pick up.

Yeah, the gun I want to put these on will serve house duty but I would like to shoot some IDPA/IPSC with it as well.

Trueglo sells them for kimbers but I have springfields. I emailed them to see if they will sell me just the bars.

Truglo does make their Tritrium-Fiber-Optic (TFO) sights, and they are quite effective, but they are fixed configuration, not adjustable.

However, I think Truglo is somewhat hesitant about trying to make 1911 sights (other than Kimber) due to the wide array of sight cuts available.

What kind of Springfield do you have? If you have a Loaded with the Novak cut, there are some options for an adjustable tritium rear. I'd probably go that route, and see if I could get a Kimber TFO front sight working.
