Aftermarket sights are a common upgrade on 1911 pistols. We decided to install Heine Ledge sights on our Series 80 Stainless Officer’s ACP. The rear sight we ordered will fit a Novak style rear sight cut. This type of cut is was developed by Wayne Novak for his excellent LoMount sights. A measured drawing of cuts required to install these sights can be found here.
In this case we are installing a Heinie Ledge rear sight. However, a wide range of sights are available to fit this cut.
