Front sight issues???

I just got a NIB 1911 target 1st trip to the range hitting 12 inches low so I assumed the adjustable rears were off, since I didn't have a tool I called it a day. 2nd trip to the range started raising rear click by click, low group after another with rear sight raised as high as possible me, my brother, and range master all had same results then my brother noticed daylight between the slide and front sight, the front sight is literally floating off the slide. I may not be a pistol guru, but I have never seen a front sight that is not flush on the slide. After sending the following pic to customer service I was told the Gunsmith said "this is normal" after arguing that the issue is not the properly mounted adjustable "rear target sight" I finally got a RMA to send my pistol in. My 1911 was made May 2012 just curious if any other pistol models manufactured in the same time frame have the same issue. I was shooting a witness limited .45 along side so I know it's not me or the other three shooters or the load and distance. I bought my 1911 target to compete with my brothers witness limited and so far it hasn't been pretty. On a good note I own my brother with my Sig M400 when we go rifles!

New front sight...problem solved

Well friends I got a new fiber optic front sight installed by a local gunsmith with no gap! Now my Sig 1911 target shoots as well as a witness limited! I could have sent it in to Sig Sauer but I was not comfortable shipping my pistol crosscountry, initially I wasn't thrilled with having an issue out of the box but now that it's fixed I put 2 shots in the same hole turning my 8 shot group into 7. Get your self a Sig Sauer 1911 in .45 acp and get ready for some fun.

That front sight has enough meat on it I reckon you could have filed it down to raise bullet impact.

I like tall meaty fronts on new pistols to enable file zeroing to pretty much any load, especially fast light bullets that may otherwise strike too low.

Sounds like you found another option you like. That's good.
