IMO the Millett adjustable sight reduces glare by eliminating the varied surface planes that are present on the OEM sight. I also find the look cleaner and less distracting. These were probably not major concerns when I was younger, but my older eyes appreciate any help they can getBoomer":258ib7k0 said:...Not meaning to be contrary, but I'm not seeing (no pun intended) how replacement Milletts would be a significant improvement over factory adjustable sights except for dots already in place vs painted on by owner...
Here's another shot of a Millett sight showing the adjustment screws:Retired Utahn":1rm77my3 said:The visual simplicity of the Millets looks impressive. Does Bomar make sights for Mark II's?
Can't see from the pic - the Millet's adjustable, I guess?

Charlie,Leucoandro":10doz6dy said:Quick question.
I have a MKII Bull Barrel model with 5-1/2 barrel. I believe it is 512 model. If I get the millet rear sight, do I also need to get a front sight as well?
I got them from Brownells, but they have not had them in a while. They do show up every so often on gunbroker and ebay. I did notice that Natchez Shooters Supplies has them listed as "in stock".cobalt402":3f3piik5 said:gb6491:
Where did you purchase the Millett sight from? Did it fit the factory dovetail w/out any adjustment?
I respect your opinion. but have always found the Millett more than capable; better than the stock Ruger adjustable sight and surely equal to the Bo-Mar on my 1911. I'll pay postage for any you are going to toss in the futureMy guns hit center":3dallvck said:The Volquartsen or Champion sight both are MUCH better than the Millet. I have tossed Milletts in the passed. The two sights mentioned are as good as the old BoMar.
