Brazos Lightning Rod has the longest and brightest FO insert.
Dawson has the narrow blade and fine bead that is popular now. Also better protected than others I have seen.

I don't use a FO rear and cannot help there.

Going to have to do some homwwark

I know that on many of their models, Ruger uses Hi-Viz and Williams. I do not know if they make one for the SR1911. Hi-Viz does make a front sight for a 1911 but do not know if this dovetail is standard/the same. ....

Good Luck and;

Use Dawson's sights. Blacked out rear and fiber optic front of your choice. Or black front with a gold bead

I have a fiber optic front site on my Tanfoglio Witness Stock 10mm. I like it on a range gun, which is what my 10mm is.

However, I am wondering how did you break your Novak site? The fiber optic site, though it has not given me any problem, probably would not stand up to the abuse of a Novak steel site.
