Chiappa 1911-22 Rear sight size?



Log in to see fewer ads
Anyone know what size the rear sight on this gun is? Looks like the GI rear sight, but i dunno if it's the same dimensions. Need a taller rear sight to bring the POI up, if the front sight is filed down it will probably be filed nearly completely off before the POI is brought up enough.

Have no clue of its metric size. Are you shooting farther thAn 50 yards ? When I was shooting mine at 25 yards, I had to use the 6 aim. My GSG 1911 came with three front sights and I'm using the middle one for 25 yards.

By all accounts it is GI spec, or **** close, so I ordered one of these:

Will probably be too high, but too high of a rear is much easier to correct.

On the Chiappa, the front sight is cast into the slide, so filing it down is the only option (or removing it completely and dovetailing in a new front sight which seemed like a lot of work). It looked like filing it down would have removed about 1/2 of it's height, which was not optimal.
