Morris TKO Sight

Morris TKO Sight

The TKO sight is a sleek, snag-free design available for Novak or Heinie sight cuts.

Pistolsmith Mark Morris builds 1911s for discriminating shooters--including some serious real-world users--and he's learned a lot from those clients over the years. One result of that feedback is Morris' new TKO (Tactical Knock Out) rear sight.

It's built from heat-treated bar stock, and it has a wider, .130-inch notch for faster front sight acquisition. A portion of the rear sight is undercut one degree to provide a good sight picture even in direct light. The face is grooved to further reduce glare, and the blade is deeper to allow installation of tritium night sight inserts. Edges are blended to a smooth, snag-free contour.


The TKO is available with or without tritium inserts in both Heinie- and Novak sight-cut versions for any 1911.


I stuck a plain black Heinie-cut version on a custom Commander, and it went on fairly easily. I shot the sight in both low light and in bright, midday sun. I liked the sight picture and found that the slightly undercut design of the area round the notch really did provide a superior sight picture.

I prefer wider rear sight notches, so I was not surprised to see that the TKO's .130-inch notch made finding the front sight fast and easy.
