I have a stock Norinco 1911A1 & it's time to put better sights on it. My eyesight in't what it used to be and I find I sight a lot better when I use other's guns with good sights. I get a much sharper sight picture with those better sights.
So, not knowing a whole lot about handgun sights, I would like some advice on middle-ground expense sights. I do mostly range shooting. The gun is, of course, a defensive gun but I do not carry this one.
I'll probably install them myself as I have the tools (mental & physical). I was thinking maybe a decent, adjustable night-sight.
A friend of mine has mepro-light, which i undertand is now Kimber. I did like his sights.

ROYCE,
If want a bright front sight for the range check in to MILLET SIGHTS, as long as you can handle restaking of the front sight, roughly 17.00, they also offer a fully adj. rear that requires no altering of the slide, roughly $55.00, or mmc puts out a nice set of adj. fulls in the same price range.

Thanks.
It's more about a good crisp sight than anything else. Mine are so bad compared to just about everyone else's which seem to be so good.
I either gotta buy more expensive guns or more expensive sights....the sights are cheaper.

Royce,

The Millets are great suggestion! Although, if you are looking for a "sharper" sight picture, stay away from colored front sights. Big, bright, high visibility sights are all the rage right now, but colored sights will not be as sharp as black front post on a black rear.
