Can any of my fellow 1911 experts tell me the proper sight cut for a Dan Wesson Pointman (Adjustable). I do not care for the stock ones.
I found the link below. It looks like Dan Wesson used 3 different styles depending on when the gun was made. The best thing to do would probably be to call them and let them tell you what you have. I tried to be helpful.:)

Dan Wesson 65 Borden Ave. Norwich, NY 13815. Monday-Friday 7am-4pm Eastern (800) 955-4486

Huh, I typically do the above research after I make a move, it just increases my frustration levels. Unfortunately not joking around. I'm still trying to learn patience.

I recall more than a few threads about DW sight cuts. Seems DW provides their own increased frustration. Hopefully , by now you've got it all sorted.

Based on what you just said, you and I have a lot in common.

All I can say is that my Valor and Silverback both have Novak fronts, the Valor a Novak rear and the Silverback an LPA /Bomar adj rear. DWs are confusing so I called Shawn Sastri at CZ/DW and asked him. He is their lead gunsmith and spot on with the knowledge.

I went with Dawson adjustable rear and Novak N/S white dot on the front. Thanks for all your input. The front took a little fitting and the rear was easy. Like always Patience is the key. And I have to work at mine. More with people that anything else.
