    I'm looking for recommendations on a 1911 adjustable rear sight. This is for a Springfield Ronin 45 that has a Novak style dovetail cut. It will primarily be a range gun and not for carry. My preference is probably a blank sight with no dots but I imagine that most good sight products will have multiple options in that regard.

    Thanks

    My adjustable sights on 1911s are all Bomar cut and I believe are Kensights. I’m not sure what is out there to fit a Novak cut, so a good gunsmith and a mill might be in order to change that sight.

    As the first product review says it won't last past 10,000 rounds for sure. I have one on my Springfield Operator and need to just install a fixed sight. Yes mine broke as well, even same malfunction as the first review the windage adjustment broke.

    He has an assortment of adjustable sights available to purchase off his sight. You are correct that he doesn't make one but he has a great rough service rear sight that is great.
