    That is the continual problem. The Clearance on the BEIII slide behind the dovetail cut is too short. The Novak-style (1911) cut is .466 with a standard 65degree angle. The stock rear sight has a distance of 0.469 from the dovetail cut to the back, leaving it only a hair before you hit the slide cut.
    I spoke to Novak sights and Brownells and BOTH said they do not make or carry a rear sight that fits. They also do not make a front sight that fits (why Magnum Research has proprietary sights without other options is beyond me).
    The problem, as I and Bugbottle above have found, is that any adj sight when being lowered will hit the frame before it's zeroed. If using a dremel works, I'll try it. If this fails, I'm taking gun to gunsmith to have the slide cut milled a bit (there's a lot of room back there) and then a bunch of sights will fit, maybe only needing to be filed to .466 for the cut.

    Your welcome folks. I'm glad it worked for you. The baby eagle III with the crosman rear sight is now the most accurate handgun I own. Glad it helped you too.
