Default Best overall sights for my 1911?

I want to change the sights on my 1911 that I'm using for single stack in USPSA. I don't have much experience on using other sights other than 3 dot style. All my hand guns have 3 dots, except some of my glocks with the stock sights. Anyways, I don't have much experience with other types of iron sight setups.

My 1911 I'm using is a Kimber Custom II which currently has the meprolight tritium 3 dots. This 1911 will primarily be used for single stack USPSA.

I'd like the best sights to get more A zone hits and faster sight acquisition.

What do you suggest?

Thanks for you thoughts

Dawson Precision, either a fixed or adjustable all black rear mated with a fiber optic front sight. The fiber optic really draw your eyes to where the front sight is. Their "Perfect Impact" guarantee can make sure you get the right height for pistol.

I don't shoot SS/CDP but uses them on my G34/G17 in Prod/SSP.

Everyone else shooting USPSA/IDPA at a higher level is using something along the lines of what Atekhed suggested. I took the 3 dot sights off all my guns after a Bob Vogel class. I was a noob and had never shot under a timer before that.

Why? Did it slow you down or make you less accurate or something?

Even though I had been a gun owner/shooter for 8 years before that, I had just been a plinker, so speed was never something I had considered. I had taken a few "tactical" shooting classes just 2 weeks before but again, not on a timer. The uncluttered sight picture of a single dot front with a blacked out rear really helped with getting shots off quicker.

Interesting. Thanks for the follow up.

I also agree with the fiber optic front mated to a all black rear. At speed, it really does make a difference in how fast you'll be able to break an accurate shot

I prefer a Dawson front matched to a 10-8 rear
