I'm trying to create a slick semi-melt.

The sights I installed are butt ugly and too large for what I'm trying to achieve
(pics are in the gunsmithing forum)

any recommendations for a good looking, small but fuctional, LOW profile rear sight?

That WON'T break the bank??

Thanks

I've been looking for something similar. I liked the Nowlins that Pistelero put on his Officer's build and I'm thinking about those for my Commander - (I'm gonna replace the GI blade)
Here's a link.

The nowlin is a really nice one if you don't want to machine the frame and want the novak look.

Is this stock dovetail cut or something else?

If you are shooting for a more traditional look in the stock dovetail, then the yobo retro is nice (it's called something else now but I forget) as the king-tappan sight.

Ah, it's heirloom precision:

King tappan.

Thanks Jerry

I'm not sure i know what the "stock" DT cut is.

the stock GI sights I removed were .306 on the ends and .310 in the middle

The sights I installed could be drifted in at .312

If they are stock gi sights then it's a stock gi dovetail.

In my opinion the nowlin, heirloom retro and king-tappan are the best looking sights for that cut. Drop in sights.
