Guys, can you help out a noob? I am confused on the model of night sights for the standard Springfield loaded 1911. I want to get night sights, but their are never any for this specific model. Am I supposed to get the Colt 1911 sights? This is the standard 5" barrel and non target model. Please let me know which night sights model I need to select for. Any help appreciated.

You need to know if your Loaded came with Target sights or Combat sights, then go to Brownell's and look for the night sights you prefer for the sight cut you have.

SA fixed 1911 sights are Novak cut.

IIRC...

SA loaded 1911 that has night sight installed are typically using Trijicon night sights with Novak dovetail cut, for their fixed sight models. So in theory, if your loaded 1911 does not come with night sights installed, you can buy a set of Novak cut night sight and install it yourself.

Call Springfield C/S and talk to them. Have your serial # handy with it they can tell you what you have and also give you a price for their sights.

This....my Loaded parkerized came with Trijicon night sights that were Novak style/cut.

Exactly which Loaded model do you have OP? The non-target models usually come with night sights already from the factory.

Lots of loaded models guys...some come with fixed night sights, some do not...

PX9151LP for example, comes with combat fixed 3-dot.

I think the OP would know if his gun already had night sights.

Then your slide has a Novak style cut....order night sights accordingly
