Available for the Novak cut in two sizes- "Oversized" and "OEM".
Oversized- Recommended for slides that have already been cut with the Novak sight cut from the factory. Leaves extra material to be fitted to the slide. There are variations in these cuts from manufacturer to manufacturer, so the extra material on the Oversize model ensures that a proper fit can be achieved. Recommended for Springfield, Dan Wesson, Les Baer, Ed Brown, and most factory 1911's except for Colt.
OEM- very closely matches the original specs of Novak sight cut. The OEM is recommended for fresh sight installations, where the gunsmith/builder is making a fresh sight cut on a bald slide. This allows the new cut to be as close to factory original as possible. The OEM also works very well on current production Colt slides which come from the factory with the Novak cut.
Please note, the Chen Full Custom Rear Sight requires some basic gunsmith skill for installation. Normally, either the sight or the slide will need to be filed for installation. If you are not familiar with the operation, please have a reputable gunsmith install one for you.
I received a new slide with the sight dovetail cut too big, new sight would just slide right through the dovetail. I ordered the oversized sight, a little filing, now it fits like a glove.Not everybody offers an oversized sight Couldn't be happier. Highly recommended.
Great sight very fast shipping
