View Full Version : Need Help Finiding Front Sight for Colt 1911

Was shooting my 1918 Vintage Colt 1911 and somehow lost the front sight. I'm not having any luck locating one, would appreciate any help at all. This is the small sight with the round staking pin.

I got a front sight for a 1914 Colt from Jack First, but just be prepared for some expensive shipping.

Maybe Colt has one left over from their reproduction run.

I called Colt when I was looking for the front and rear sights for that 1914 Colt...they don't sell parts. :-(

It seems like those guys selling reproduction M1911's in The American Rifleman would have made extra parts for restoration.

I wonder how many of those for $5,000 will sell?

Some of them said the whole production runs were sold already.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I tried Sarco, Numerich, and mulitple parts places. Thanks 30/40 Krag, Colt gun parts was one of my first contacts. I've dealt with him getting SA Colt parts before. I'm getting a little discouraged, hard to believe this replacement sight is so hard to find. Colt made 400,000 or so of these. I also found out that a 1903 Colt Pocket Model sight is the same sight I'm looking for, but of course none of those available either. I'll keep looking for Thanks for all the help.
