Uniquely configured for combat / carry applications, the MMC Combat Adjustable Sight meets the need for an extremely durable and snag free adjustable gun sight. Currently available for the 1911 with variations for other Colts, S&W, Ruger, CZ, Springfield, Browning and H&K pistols, and Marlin rifles coming soon. Competitively priced and easy to install, the MMC Combat Adjustable Sight for the 1911 is the best value on the market.
When considering an adjustable sight for a handgun, the question should be – How will it be used? If the application is exclusively to punch holes in paper, perhaps target sights are in order. However, if the gun is to be used for carry or combination carry / target, then a lower, snag free design would be a better choice. Unfortunately, current adjustable offerings are largely unsuitable for combat use. In addition to the low, snag free profile, a combat sight should be very durable and quick to acquire. It is this segment of the market we wish to address.
Because the windage consideration is normally a “once and done” adjustment, the combat adjustable sight is best designed (smaller and less complicated), WITHOUT a windage mechanism. This also allows for the sight picture to be symmetrical, which aids in quicker sight acquisition. Therefore, the MMC 1911 combat adjustable sight is simply drift adjustable for windage correction. The sight blade employs a patented mechanism which gives the shooter ample, fine increment adjustment for elevation.
The 30 degree rear face and truncated round outer shape of the sight base makes it far less likely to snag on clothing, belt and holster during presentation. Since the sight sits directly over the factory dovetail and forward of the rear edge of the slide, it’s less apt to sustain damage if the gun is dropped. Additionally, the sight is machined from solid hardened steel to further diminish the potential for deformation due to impact.
The sight base “ears” provide additional protection for the sight blade. These protective ears also assistin the transition to sighted fire from simply shooting off the front sight under high stress situations. This minimizes the time it takes to get on target. (See this Massad Ayoob concept outlined in his excellent defensive handgun book Stressfire.)
Regarding the combat defense pistol, the rear sight is the best “handle” for one arm slide manipulation. The blunt forward face of the MMC sight base facilitates one hand cocking / clearing of the handgun. Please study the three sight identification pictures to insure your pistol is compatible with the MMC sight.
