I'm building a 1911 for hunting using a 460 Rowland conversion. Just wondering which sights you all would recommend? Prefer something pretty sturdy that can handle the rigors of hunting and thinking adjustable would be best. On the other hand I really like Novaks because of the clean lines. I'm using a standard 1911A1 slide with standard sights so what would you all recommend to replace them? Bill

Most hunting of medium/big game occurs at dawn/dusk and frequently in timber, or low light. The ability to see the front sight is mandatory.
Fiber optic FS (on an iron sighted handgun) is what I use.
An adjustable rear sight is also required to be able to dial the gun in to shoot precisely to POA with your hunting load.
I won't get into rather the .460 Rowland is an appropriate hunting cartridge.
Using a 1911 for hunting I would have Dawson FO frontsight and a BoMar knockoff rear.

These are examples of my hunting handguns for deer and hogs:

Stand, stalking, or with dogs play a role?

Mostly stand sitting for deer, with the occasional stalk thrown in. Also as a back up when hog hunting. I usually carry my AR in 50 Beowulf then but like to have a back up.
