Hi All, I live in Australia & can't get a hold of a Dawson Fibre Optic ( .040 )
Micro dot front sight for my Springer RO anywhere here. Firstly I'm keeping the original rear adjustable sight on my springer RO & want to swap out the original front blade with a matching ( size/height wise ) Dawson F/O to complement my original rear sight. If anyone knows the part number I need would be very much appreciated as I will probably use speed shooter int/world wide sports network to send me one as Dawson precision don't export/sell o'seas, their is a pic of a RO on Harrisons website fitted with a Dawson F/O which looks trick but he uses his own ' U shaped/elevated rear sight ' so I would hate to order wrong part number lol. I can source some Wilson combat mags for my RO locally which is good, any good info on the RO would be much appreciated as a lot of blokes over here use the STI trojan, Hopefully I've made a good choice with my RO!!

Consider keeping your plain black front sight. I shoot roughly half of my matches with a .45 RO with the factory black sights, and another guy at my club shoots a 9mm RO with the black sights, and we both do pretty well relative to the club's other single stack shooters.
