Walther Colt 1911 Gold cup shooting to high



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi!
I own a 1911 Gold Cup that is shooting to high. I've already tried to adjust the sights, but the adjustment isn't enought. I'm considering to replace the front sight with a higher front sight. Can you tell me if I can buy any 1911 front sight or do I need to buy specific models in order for them to be compatible with the dove tail on my gun?

If mine, I would let someone else shoot the pistol before I modified anything. If it still shoots high for the other shooter and you have maxed out the rear sight adjustment then do your modification. Dawson Precision has sights for these.

I had the same problem and replaced the front sight with a taller one from Dawson Precision and am very happy with it.
