Question about front sights

Recommended Posts

Evenin'...

 

So a quick question about the front sight on a single action.   Can these be removed and still be used in SASS events?


I didn't see anything in the rulebook mentioning removal of the front sight...merely the requirements for sights on your pistol.  

Maybe...I read right past it.  

 

Anyway...appreciate all comments about this topic.

 

 

Many thanks.

Why would you do such a thing?

HA.  I know almost sounds like sacrilege.

But the reason is to use one of the same guns for CFDA...and SASS.  

 

The gun itself is only a slicked up New Ruger Vaquero.  Main difference would be no front sight.  

Just wanted to see if SASS had a rule against that.

 

Many thanks PaleWolf for the answer.  Takes a load of my mind.

Ah, a Fast Draw gun.  Gotcha.  You may find that if you have a hammer bent up for fanning for CFDA, then that will work against you in SASS matches.  Either way, it'll help you get you started.

I've taken the front sight off during a match a couple times... :lol:

These things have sights?  What are they used for?

I have a pair of GW II that I use for both. The front sight has been filled about 3/16" for my .45 Special 200gr Red Dot load. I don't think you are really gonna gain anything by removing the front sight. Good leather with a cant that fits you and regular practice will more than overcome anything you think you might gain by removal.;) Good Luck:)

Thanks Jefro.  

Did you file down the sights for SASS then?  Or to help you fast draw?

Howdy Calvera, I filed the sights for SASS, it was probably 8 - 10 years later that I picked CFDA. I've had the pleasure to shoot with some CFDA top guns at both state and regional championships, I don't know of any that removed the front sight. The way you  I draw the front sight is not dragging in the holster. IMHO it would be a waste of time and multi use of a good firearm.  Go shoot it for a while first. Good Luck:)
