    Colt SM Ace rear sight cut for Accro. Pic

    Notice the width of the slide outside the dovetail cut for the rear sight. One side is 1.48mm. The other is 1.0mm
    That little bit makes for a lot of rear sight adjustment to get centered on target,first time I’ve noticed this
    on adjustable sight 1911. FWIW. Pete

    I just came from the indoor range. The good news is it didn’t take much windage adjustment at 50’ to center. I was afraid
    the rear sight blade would be lopsided as to look bad but not the case. If I was trying to sight at 50 yds it may be
    different but as a practical matter for a 22 LR handgun I don’t think it’s a problem. Pete

    One thing about these Colt's is that they are not and never were perfect, although we like to believe they were.

    In this case that sight cut is obviously off center compared to the end of the slide, assuming that the firing pin stop hammer cut is centered. The widths of the sides of the cut may or may not be an indication of the cut being off centered, because the sides of the slides are not always even.

    My early 1970's Commander has a trigger cut that is too shallow on one side and too deep on the other side. The magazine that came with the gun was sanded on the sides. The pistol works just fine its one of those things like this sight cut that happened

    That’s weird. I had to look at pics of mine, seems straight.
