Any Gunsmiths in the house?

This is a pistol I recently purchased. Its a colt 1911 with a Randall Slide. As you can see in the pic its missing its front sight. So tonight I am up late so I decided what the heck, I would stake in a new sight. Problem is as you can see in the second pic the hole does not have the normal square hole. Any ideas on finding a correct sight? Otherwise I will be filing the hole square.

Looks like there's more than enough meat left to dovetail the front if you wanted to. The sight would probably even cover the impression left by the last installation so that you would never even know. Not something you want to attempt at home with the dremel unless you've done it a few dozen times before. :)

As jimb says though it looks like s&w, and those are readily available.

Now assemble your 1911 and take it the gun shop and trade it for a Glock! :lol:
Ohhh, you were about one second away from a like for that post and as my mouse was hovering over the button I read that. Had to go there. :)
