Just remove the front sight. Cut a dove tail in the barrel. You can put a sight on it and drift it right or left. I would not hammer a sight in a vise. You can damage the barrel.

I would not hammer a sight either. You put a rag around the barrel, put it in the vise and use a vise grips or channel lock to bend the sight a little. Very easy and less expensive then replacing the sight. I own quite a few SA revolvers and have had to adjust the front site on all of them, even my Rugers. I like all my revolvers to shoot the same and this just does not happen with them right out of the box.

The Italians are making some fine reproductions. Never fired one personally but they have been at it for a while now. AND more importantly, they make an honest 22 revolver vs 22 & 22 Mag which are chambered .224 and does not promote accuracy for the 22 LR side.

Ruger does make rock solid revolvers and makes both 22 LR and combo revolvers. Both are built to last for generations but this is a $550 in SS gun - not a $200 and under.

Fixed site firearms - it is an art form to sight them in but it can be done and tuned to shoot POA w a specific load. I will not bend/twist a barrel but people do it every day. I prefer to change front sights but they can be filed down. How steep is the learning curve - no idea but I'll bet there's some FTF members who have been down that road.

Gonzilla, so true. There are a number of ways to correct the zero on SA handguns. The trial and error method of hand loads is the best. Front sight replacement and a file is a very good fix. The Colt SAA was inteneded for close combat from horse back. The training was done while riding and firing at a 4' X 4' target at 5'. These were sabre replacements close combat weapons. Most gun fights were carried out at under 7 yards. Point being the early SAA was not intended to be a target pistol. Modern shooters don't often need to finish off their horse at point blank range. So we have to tune these guns to shoot 2" at 25 yds. or we are confused.

Can I ask you why you don't buy Ruger? Is it a quality issue or something?

I have a Rough Rider combo (.22lr/.22 mag) I LOVE IT!!!! In my opinion it shoots just like the Ruger single six accept no adjustable rear sights. i paid $150 for it w/ the .22 mag cylinder. I've never had a problem with it but i don't like the hammer safety.

Do any of you guys have any experience with them? also how are the finish because it will get wet and muddy it will get cleaned regularly but I don't want to get a gun that will turn to rust after a few days.
I would get it. Love mine, never had a issue with it. Good price for a good gun.
