I was thinking about making a retro looking 10mm Colt Commander. Would S&W rear sights be too fragile for 10mm recoil in commander 1911?

Anyone make a rear sight that looks like S&W but more robust? Otherwise, I may just put a simple blade rear.

My concerns are not for strength, as that can be addressed. I don't much care for the shallow notch. We have the ability to set up any type of front sight we want - why saddle ourselves with a less than perfect sight picture just for the sake of nostalgia?

Your original retro blade was also what I was thinking.
