New member new 22/45 need opinions



Log in to see fewer ads
Purchased a mark III 22/45 with a 5.5 inch bull barrel new in case for $190.
The fired case is dated April 2014 . The 22/45 assembly dance thread doesnít inspire confidence . I got the impression itís quite challenging . My question is what
is the best height and width for a Dawson fiber optic front sight ? Older eyes find them very beneficial . I havenít had time to comb through all the interesting threads
on this forum . Any information would be appreciated .

Rather than try and second guess the Dawson sight height business I simply installed Williams "Firesights" on all my Mark series guns. They come as a pair and are easily installed. However, if you're dead set on Dawson's I can't help you. Good luck.

Assembly isn't that big a deal if you follow the instructions. There are YouTube videos to lead you through it but it simply isn't as big a problem as some folks would have you believe.

As far as the front sight is concerned, I suggest that you shoot the pistol and see if the current sight is an acceptable height (I can't believe that it isn't but check to be sure). That should give you direction regarding height of a replacement sight. Width is up to your preference.

Try some orange nail polish over a white base on the existing sight first. I find this method cheaper and brighter than fiber optics and it doesn't break in the middle of a match.

Williams fire sights worked on the 22/45 lite.

Tried just a front Dawson sight on the 22/45, removed it for the front and rear fire sight.

Used the Dawson front sight on my new browning standard SS, with a Williams rear sight. the front sight on the Williams was too high. Had to mod the dawson front sight by drilling a small dimple to fit the Browning.
