Rance - SASS # 54090 Posted April 30, 2013 Share Posted April 30, 2013 Quite a few years back... I was sighting in my Rugers... I had my bullet load (grains and bullet type and weight) I wanted to shoot and stay with.. Kept filing to POA... Geesh.. gotta take off quite a bit.. Used my belt sander...(goes faster.. not recommended) Last part was with a file.. Well I had one pistol done.. Hurrah!! Started on the second.. Ok.. I'll use the belt sander down to a certain point.. Whoops... Picked up the wrong Ruger.. I took some more off the front sight of the Ruger I had already done. Well.. Reckon it's already done.. live with it, Well... unless I want to buy a new front sight and pay somebody to put it on. Well at Midwest Classic this past weekend I was on the loading table a lot.. Riverview Rattler came up.. I was looking at his front sight.. Gold plated.. but it was different than just gold plating... It was a slotted gold sight that went over the old one.. I asked him if he liked it.. "Sure do.. Can pick up the front sight real quick." "Slick McClade has 'em." Up at the Vendors there was Gunsmith Frank selling Slick McClade's "Sure Hit Sights" Gold slip overs.. just what Riverview Rattler had.. hmmmm. Gunsmith Frank showed me how they went on.. slipped over the original sight.. little bit of epoxy.. Same height as the original Vaquero height.. Huuuhhh Dang ... That will fix the too short sight and give me gold sights ta boot.. Needless ta say I bought a set.. Put 'em on.. filed them down.. (not to where the others were) Now I need to get out and sight 'em in... Thanks Riverview Rattler, Gunsmith Frank and Slick McClade Rance Thinkin' problem fixed and new gold front sights.. Life is good .. Edit: Oh yeah.. almost fergot... I ain't a gunsmith!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
