did you ever finish that front sight??? love to see what you did... I am gunna have to tackle mine as well... i have seen several of them done on this site, but have not gotten to mine yet... my conversion is dead on shooting way out there... but up close and personal, it is about 1 foot high...

Mark!! Nice to see you around again!

I think you're referring to my 72 Open Top that I cut the barrel down on. And yes, I did finish the sight on that one. You can see my remedy here.

On this one, someone else cut the barrel down, and they cut a factory style sight channel in the barrel. Sight replacement should be as easy as fashioning a new blade and installing it.

Things are coming together. Got the tracking info today, it's scheduled for delivery on Monday! Also got a mold coming and some brass cartridges from Buffalo Arms. Just need to round up some lead and some caps now. I'm getting REALLY excited!

I often wonder why Preparation H hasn't bought the rights to Johnnie Cash's song Ring of Fire for their commercials.

Thanks fellas.

Richard, you're absolutely right. I have the materials here to do just that. I'm going to make a new front sight much taller than I think I need, then shoot and file, shoot and file, until it shoots right where I want it to.

Hi Dave, very nice looking revolver. You will need to get a taller front sight on that pistol shooting .45 Colt.

Regards,
Richard
