Better sights (throw back) for a R.I.A. 1911A1 GI

I’ve got a R.I.A. 1911A1 GI in 9mm. The sights are a bit small but I do like the look on the gun. I would like to replace them with ones that look the same but are a bit more practical. I don’t want to take what looks like a WW1 1911 and put modern sights on it. I just ones that work as a set and have a bigger front sight butt look like the throw back sights that would match the gun.
Thanks.

You could use this REAR SIGHT along with a .175 tall front sight (lots of options on front sight of that height)

MR. SMALL

Visit the "novak's guns" website & checkout out their sight offerings. Ship your slide to them & have a set of your choice installed. I promise you will not be disappointed with their products or the installation.
