I'm talking about the bottom gun in the picture. Is this a type of sight that comes this way or has someone blended a Bo-Mar or other brand into the slide? I think it looks pretty nice and was curious how they did it.

Interesting... It's not a Bomar though...

Notice, back by the blade, there is no adjustment screw for windage. Normally, the captive end show's on the port (left) side, and here, it's solid or flush. Also, the rear blade appears to be pretty verticle, and not angle to the rear for glare reduction.

It may be a clone, something possible where the Bomar leaf is set into a special mount, but regardless, the blending of the mount to round the leading edge is a nice tough.

Still, the newer Low Mount versions of the Bomar's, and even Wilson's adjustable sight seem to sit much lower, and have less exposed area, providing a slightly cleaner look, rather than the "tumor" approach.

I was just about to say that! Well, if I can't figure out what kind of sight it is, maybe I can just grind a little off my Bo-mars if I decide I like that look enough and that it's worth the trouble.

Looks too beefy to be a Bomar. My guess is that it is a Wichita, (it looks like one anyway) though I don't believe they are being made anymore.

Dang crappy low-resolution monitors at work!

Upon further examination at home (on a decent monitor) jaydee is right - there is no windage screw! Not a Bo-mar.....

It looks like an ugly job of melting a Bo-Mar but who cares? It looks awful but on plastic guns I don't think it matters.
