Fiber Optic for Pointman?

Anyone know the dovetail cut size on the Pointman? Who has a fiber optic front sight for the DW?

dean : front sight cut is .330 x .075 x 60 deg. which is different from the normal Ed Brown / Wilson / Novak cut . You can try XS Sights web site as they make wessons for them. they might have what your looking for ! JW

Thanks for the info everyone. I had to replace the front sight on my other DW, a .45 PM Major and DW was good enough to send me a replacement. I had to go from .210" tall to a .155" tall. It shot very low out of the box and there was not enough travel in the adjustable rear to get on target at 25 yds. The .155' put it on POA with the adjustment just a tad below the center of adjustment which is fine. The slightly lower front sight is a bit better for less snag and it actually gives a better sight picture. Now when the top of the front blade is even with the top of the rear sight the bottom of the front blade (and the end of the rib) is also even with the bottom of the rear sight cut. Don't know why, everything if of course tight as a drum on this pistol. My 10mm has the same sights and is right on with the .205", must just be machined a bit differently.

Now, back on topic. When I spoke with Phil at DW he mentioned that "they no longer use that front sight". He only had the one .155" sight to give me, fortunately it was correct. I asked about the dimensions of the front cut and he told me .330 wide x 65 deg x .090 deep.

So evidently not all DW's are the same.
