Front sight solution for Service Six w/ 2-3/4" barrel
At 25-ft, my 2-3/4" Service Six hits 4 inches low.
I'm confident it's the gun because:
1. I can drive tacks with my 4" Speed6.
2. My son get same results with both of these revolvers.
3. Results are same for cowboy .38 spl, +P gold dots, and .357 magnum.
Looking at the front sight on the Service Six, a couple things to point out:
1. It is 1/16" higher than the front sight on the Speed6.
2. The serrations on the ramp are angled (progressivley) and not as fine as those on the Speed6.
So, perhaps this is not the factory sight? (I recently bought this Service Six and do not know its history.)
1. Replace the sight. It would need to be a lower than the existing front sight, but I never shopped for sights. I don't want adjustable sights, just a good fixed sight with a low profile. OEM or other sight recommendations?
2. File down the existing sight? Never done this, but other than taking care to not remove too much metal, what tips would help?
3. Shoot it as is? Nah, I'm a tinkerer and I'd really like to get the sight picture closer to what it should be so I don't have to "remember" how to shoot this gun.
4. Other options?
Thanks in advance for the help!
