While shooting my new to me Range Officer 1911 I racked the slide and racked my hand up. I drew blood. The rear sight sticks out to the sides with sharp edges.
What the heck is with that??? I can not rack my slide without the sight cutting into my hand. I don’t understand how they can sell them like that. They must test these.
I’m not sure what to do about it. I could get a replacement sight but I think I may grind mine down. It’s a adjustable sight so I don’t want to affect it’s functionality. It’s parkerized so I’d have to paint it. Dawson Precision makes an adjustable sight. They had the forethought to design it so it wouldn’t cut up your hand.
