Anyone know if the sight cuts on the PT1911 are "standard" dovetail cuts, like Novak or Kimber or whatever? Has anyone actually installed aftermarket sights and had it work? I want to maybe change mine out, but not if I have to go into some seriouse machine work to do so. Thanks.

NO! they are a special cut designed for the heinie straight 8 system as far as I know there are only 3 sites that fit. Heine makes a 3 dot night sight and a company called PT ttp://store.ptnightsights.com/index.php?p=product&id=96&parent=26 and one other if anyone knows of adjustible or any other opions please let us now

At the risk of beating a dead horse here, is the rear Heinie dovetail on the PT1911 the same dimensions, depth and width, as a Heinie dovetail found on those 1911's other than the PT ?
