I finally got the Fusion 1911 kit that I ordered awhile ago, and I had the slide cut for Novak sights, with my intentions being to get Novak Fiber Optic sights. After a little more investigation, I discovered that there is quite a few options when it comes to those very sights. For instance, the Novak Fiber Optic rear sights have a couple different options: S&W, Colt, Kimber, and Taurus. Now, the 1911 I'd be putting these on is a Fusion, so could anyone help me out with which of those four rear sight options would be correct for a Fusion slide?
Also, if anyone has a suggestion for which height I'd need for the Novak Fiber Optic front sight, I'm all ears

Thanks for the help

So does it not matter whether i get the Novak rear sight made for Taurus, Colt, Kimber or S&W?

Any recommendations on which front sight height would be a good one to get?

You want the novak rear sight that is cut for the novak sight cut.

Novak is a sight manuf, but Novak also has there own sight cut, and this is what fusion would of cut the slide to if you specified novak sight cuts.


for front sight I get a gunsmith blank and machine the front sight down till I get poa/poi I am looking for.  Email novak they may have a sugestion.

Colt Novak rear will likely be the best fit. Not all Colts have the same front sight cut, as I found out with my Rail Gun. Luckily Novak made one for my XSE, as the standard Novak front overhangs the slide.
