Re: Front sight problem with Ruger Vaquero
Ive been adjusting my handloads and my gripping of the gun to shoot closer 'to the sights'. Also, when I use my normal, everyday bifocals I get a less good view of the front sight than if I use my 'arms length computer' glasses; I cant define the blade in the 'notch' as well.
Welding on small stuff is an art form; I am not an artist.......
You might try making a 'form' atop that front blade and using something like a black JB Weld epoxy. Make it taller than you think, or calc., you need (IIRC Brownell's has a chart for correcting handgun error; or look online, there is everything online now). This would be a fairly user friendly and reversible way to see if it improves things.
I have considered filing down the top of my rounded front blade some and filing in a 'dovetail', then making a 'blade extension' to fit in it. At this point Im thinking life is too short and I wont get aroundtoit.
