Fiber optic sight
 
Does anyone know what size fiber optic sight goes on the front of a Taurus Judge Poly frame??

The one that is the same height as the current sight. Where did you find fiber optics for it?

I need diameter of fiber optic sight pin. Came on the pistol from the factory

Call Taurus or measure the broken one.

They are a pain in the ass to replace. You have to heat the rod without scorching it to form the bubbles that hold it in place.

I drilled out the ends of the sight, so the rod would pass right thru. Then it's easy to form the rod with a small torch, one end at a time.

Thanks!! I'll give it a try

An easy way to do it is by holding a soldering iron tip a hair away from the filament tip, until it starts melting. Or just touch it up (the soldering tip must be free of any residue)

A tiny dab of clear epoxy holds the rods good also.

Bear in mind that the larger the bubble you form on the inside of the sight, the larger the illuminated dot. :) I make a small bubble on a range pistol and a larger bubble on a carry pistol, as a quick acquisiton aid ( my poor old eyes !) :)
