Hi everyone, I'm gunshowed and shopped to death. I traded a cW45 (plastic and guns don't impress me) for a PT1911 SS. friggin love it.
However the sights are a joke for anything over 10 yards. Maybe these Hiene Sights are for 10 yards, I don't know- but at 25 yards, i have to cover the bullseye to where i cant see it and shoot.
OK so what sights are suppose to be on these guns? I read thru the FAQ list, does anyone have the magic number for this, thanks.

I am also a new Taurus owner. Just got my PT-1911AR on friday. Ran 5 mags through it to "re-format" the computer's hard drive so i could get rid of the old Gateway. Mine came with Novak sights. I bought it from Bud'sGunShop, but it was drop shipped direct from Taurus I believe. I have seen blase reviews about the Heine sights. Does Taurus use Novak instead now? Looking forward to using this forum

Welcome aboard from Florida the "GunShine" state.

Ignore the sight dots, and practice proper sight alignment/sight picture and your 1911 "will" hit center mass at 25 yards and beyond.

Welcome from West Texas! :wave:

Congrats on the SS PT1911. :thumb: I love mine. Some folks like the straight eights, some don't. I personally don't have a problem with them, so I've left 'em. There are some here that have changed their sights to traditional Novak sights.
