Whether you’re using your handgun to compete, hunt or safeguard your life, proper shot placement is the key to success, so having a sighting system that is quick and easy to use is imperative. Forming a simple, single-point sight picture, Gun Pro’s Delta 1 adjustable 1911 Sights provide fast and intuitive target acquisition for your M1911-pattern pistol. The set’s Novak-style rear sight features a green fiber-optic delta (triangle) that collects ambient light. The front sight contains a V-shaped groove running its length, and its rear face is serrated and has been painted blaze orange. Once installed, just align the vertex of the front sight’s groove with the tip of the rear sight’s delta. Fixed sights for Glock and Smith & Wesson M&P pistols are also available. Price: $120.
