WELL, EARLIER TODAY I TOOK THE REVOLVER TO A RETIRED GUNSMITH BUDDY OF MINE, IN NO TIME AT ALL HE HAD FILED THE PESKY GOLD BEAD DOWN TO THE BLACK PATRIDGE BLADE, PUT SOME COLD BLUE ON THE BLADE, AND I KNOW HAVE A BLACK/BLUE PATRIDGE FRONT SIGHT. HOPE I CAN SHOOT THIS REVOLVER BETTER NOW.
TOOK THE GP100 327 UP TO THE RANCH AND IN SOME INFORMAL SHOOTING AROUND CAMP I WAS ABLE TO GET THE REVOLVER SIGHTED IN AND WAS BANGING STEEL TARGETS PRETTY REGULARLY. FOR ME THE BLACK PATRIDGE FS WAS A 1,000,000 % IMPROVEMENT OVER THE GOLD DOT.
I replaced the barrel on my Single Six a while back with a new 10/22 take off barrel. Like the integral banded front sight base but the little brass bead is just isn't cutting it. Will have a find a 3/8's dovetailed sight blade to replace it. I swapped the rear sight blade to one with a narrower notch but that still wasn't enough.
