The front sight is .050" thick and shaped different. making it a LOT easier to aim at the target. The rear uses an insert to be able to see the front sight better... I only have the front sight for my 1903A3 (bill also makes USMC style front blades for A3's) REAL USMC 1903 sight sets will run you about $350+ IF you can find them......... I believe Bills sets run about $125 Not sure though as it has been a few years since I inquired.. I DO know his front blades run about $45 He wraps them in foam wrap and warns you that you will cut your self if you aren't carefull as they are VERRY sharp on the ramp of the sight. this makes for a VERRRY crisp edge for aiming :)
