allstar I agree it looks like you are right. I looked at a Browning parts list and it said 'front sight assembly'. That front sight is 'hard' soldered to the barrel. It could still be a three piece sight because after they are polished and blued it can be very hard to tell but like I said your pics make it look like a one piece unit. Here is that schematic if you want it (owner's manual).

It says in the owners manual that the front sight is soldered with silver solder on the 44 mag models. The text regarding the front sight is on page 5.

That is really unusual for a Browning. Then again Browning has slapped their name on all sorts of stuff from cheesy pocket knives to coats.

I did a quick check on Google and it looks like it is a common problem. I would take it to a gunsmith and see if he could modify the front sight either by milling a slot or attaching a riser.

Either would be a pretty easy job.
