GI sight replacement?

Hello,

I'm new here and basically a beginner. I am looking at buying a pistol and one of my options is the GI mil-spec. I have a few questions.

1.) Are the sights changable and if so how hard is the process? Can I do it myself?

2.) Will the standard ejection port give me any trouble?

3.) How durable will the olive drab finish be?

Thanks for any info!!

1.) Are the sights changable and if so how hard is the process? Can I do it myself?

Rear sights, as long as they fit the factory dovetail, are pretty easy to change, front sights are staked on and require tools. The cost of the tools is usually not justifiable if you are only going to change the front sight on one 1911.


2.) Will the standard ejection port give me any trouble?

It will likely put a small ding in the case mouth of ejected brass, otherwise it does not present a problem.

3.) How durable will the olive drab finish be?

Parkerizing is fairly durable and holds oil nicely.

If you want larger sights and a lowered ejection port, go ahead and get the Springfield Armory MilSpec 1911 rather than making a WW II reproduction pistol into a MilSpec.
