Which fiber optic front sight 22/45 Tactical



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a new 22/45 Tactical and want to add a fiber optic front sight. The sights on Ruger's web page says their fiber optic sight wont work on the threaded barrel. So, I'm looking for a fiber optic "front sight only" that is the correct height, that will work for my 22/45 threaded barrel. Thanks in advance!!

I bought the Truglo FO front sight, for both my slabside and 22/45 LITE. The sight is a bit lower, and in order to sight-in both pistols, we had to raise the rear sight, using the elevation screws to their maximum height. It's money, sights are now dead on at 25-50 feet.

Think I recently read the Lites need a higher front site. From what yo had to do with the rear site this sounds accurate.

Measure your width and height of the front sight and if dawson precision makes one I would get it.

I called Dawson and I was told to make sure POA = POI. Then measure from top of sight to bottom of barrel, measure diameter of barrel and subtract the two. The difference between the two would tell him what height site I needed. I just need to buy a set of calibers now.
