    Opinions please on what replacement sights you think are best for a 1911...

    I have a Ballester Molina and have given up on the original shrinking sight package (couldn't be me, could it?).

    So - Novaks, Tritium-based, rear peep sight into a holosight - what ideas?

    Well, what do you want to use the gun for? Target shooting, concealed carry, nightstand/home defense? As far as target sights, I like Bomars. But Heine and some others make a decent target sight. For any self defense or low light shooting something with Tritium inserts would be good. A fiber optic sight such as a Dawson is worth consideration as well.

    Actually shot a Colt 1911 with a set of ghost sights once. Kind of liked them.
