    Revolver front sights

    I have a Rogers and Spencer with pin front sight. It shoots about 18 inches high at 25 yards. Windage is perfect. How do I fabricate a taller front sight or should I just have the barrel dovetailed and buy a skirmish sight from Lodgewood or maybe S & S. Have same problem with .36 Remington Navy. It is dovetailed; shoots aout 16 inches high and right at 25 yards. Has original front sight. Taller sight available?

    There are taller front sights available with the dove tail for the Remington. You just need one and fit it to your revolver.

    Assuming your RS is a Italian repro, The Rogers and Spencer sight pin is a Metric threaded pin. You can unscrew it and obtain a metric screw the appropriate length. After you get it file down to the correct height, file the threads off and you have a taller pin sight. I believe the size screw is 2-5 mm in size. Any good hardware store should be able to help you.
