    Accro White Outline Sight Blade for Colt Revolvers

    I can recall reading a few post sometime back on the forum that the Ruger white outline blade that fits revolvers, Blackhawks, Redhawks etc. is the same blade that was used on the Colt Accro sights for the Colt Revolvers. Anyone ever used them or have any knowledge of that? Thanks in advance.

    Laying one on top of the other, they appear to be identical in size and shape, except the Ruger blade has a slight "bulge" in the base. If you filed this off, they would probably be usable in a Colt sight.

    OK thanks. Wasn't aware of a bulge. 1st time I hear of that. I'm trying to find the past thread.

    Actually, they're not.

    Basically, unscrew and remove the windage screw.
    Hook the sight blade notch with your fingernail and pull it to the left.
    Lift up the right side of the blade and remove it from the base.

    To reassemble, insert the spring into the base and push to the left.
    Tip the blade and insert the left side into the base. If necessary push the spring over with a punch so you can get the blade tipped down into the base.
    MAKE SURE the rounded lobe on the bottom of the base faces the left side toward the spring and the sharp cornered side to the right.
    Push the blade over and tilt the right side down into the base.
    Replace the windage screw and test operation.

    OK thanks for the info D. The Ruger sight base looks different and the Ruger blade looks taller than that of the Accro. Maybe it's just a stock photo?
