Today, I bought dad a Williams Fire Sight set for his 1911 as a late Christmas/birthday gift, they're Red pipes on the back and a Single Green on the Front:



That should make it easier for him to acquire the target. Now I'll just have to install them, after they come in the mail... Any pointers on installing sights on a pistol?

I think that Taurus has a dove tail slot
if you dont have access to a sight press you need to use a flat punch & hammer to drift it out
then drift it to get your zero

put the slide in a vise between 2 pieces of wood

Alright, I think I might get a sight pusher, don't have a vise nor access to one, unless I can clamp it to a desk using one of the old clamps that have wood on the jaws, then use a Rubber mallet and a brass punch.

They came in a day early. Seems pretty straight forward on installing the rear sight, just tap out the old, tap in this new one:

Gave the sights and pistol to one of my uncles and he's gonna install them for us. Been about two weeks, but he's always busy so its just a bit of a wait..
