fellow shooters,


guys help me out,the rear end of my front sight is sytled like a ramp, so on hot a sunny afternoons it has a tendency to glare and shine. Im gonna change my front sights; there are two type of sights right the military and the combat (or is it the competition style, i dont know something like that)?
what are the diffrence between the two (besides the spelling hehhehehehe)

Light a paper match, and hold the gun upside down, with the sight ramp just a fraction of an inch above the flame for about one second. That should put enough soot from the flame onto the ramp to make the glare go away. You may have to experiment just a little, depending on your matches.

Look at the Springfield Armory web-site, you can see pictures of the GI model (also called the WWII reproduction) this is the original combat sight: http://www.springfield-armory.com/images/pistols/PW9108LLarge.jpg

Compare that to a Mil-Spec: http://www.springfield-armory.com/images/pistols/PB9108LLarge.jpg

and then the Loaded model front sights: http://www.springfield-armory.com/images/pistols/PX9151LLarge.jpg

, and then the Trophy Match: http://www.springfield-armory.com/images/pistols/PI9140LLarge.jpg

and the Leatham model Trophy Match, with Fiber-Optic: http://www.springfield-armory.com/images/pistols/PI9146LLarge.jpg

You should see the variety of choices out there. (This is not an advertisement for Springfield, they just happen to offer models with most of the sights that are availabe...)
