    Someone here once said sights like mine were made from something called "hose cutting blades" which have a really nice bevel. I never looked those blades up but might do it now. The sight picture is really good and no worse than other typical front sights. It's not sharp having been rounded off a little.

    Nice one, and killer grips!

    Here's mine again with a '52 Cobra and a factory 3" 1903 .41. I sold the stags on it, though, because I didn't want to seperate the gun from the original hard rubbers.

    I had this one done several years ago and used a buffalo nickel for a front sight.

    There's something so appealing about big bore snubs, it's like holding a fistful of dynamite. They're ideal for a big man with big hands, and easier to carry concealed than men of smaller physical stature.

    Man, you don't see these often. S&W's yeah, but Colt's not so much.

    It doubles as a pizza cutter.
