Got these a while back and ended up not using them.

Think they go for $40 plus shipping on Bowens site.

$35 shipped each. Buy two for $65 shipped. Buy all three for $95 shipped.

These are plenty tall and can be used on other guns. I originally bought them for my 10.5” barreled Rugers.

Carbon. Sorry.

Here is one I shaped and then cold blued. Fun, rainy day project.

Thanks I’d be interested if they were stainless steel. My single six are all stainless.

I’d like some stainless ones myself. I’ve never seen any. Not to say they arent made. I’ve just never seen any.

Joe, would you be kind enough to PM me the measurement of inside the curve of the base to top? (ie, what would be the height above barrel)
I sure will. It will be this evening before I can, but I will get them to you sometime after five.


What is the purpose of these sights?
Couple things. A lot of times the front sight is too short to get a proper zero. Especially if you shoot long-range, heavy for load bullets and slow powder with a magnum charge.

Sometimes, you just want to different shape sight. Me personally, I do not like the ramp sight Ruger installed on their guns. My eyes do not do well with that style site in the sunlight. I prefer a vertical face on my front sights. Similar to a post, or a Patridge style. These sights allow you to create whatever shape front sight you want.

Yeah, my local smith put one of these on a 45 Blackhawk for me back in the '80s, looks nice, works perfect, same brand, Bowen. Otherwise I could not get the Ruger on target at 25 yards with the sight that came on the gun.
