As most of ya'll are wearily aware, I've been working on an old Super Blackhawk. Bottom line, front sight was too short. Gunsmith replaced it with another, it too, too short. So, my gunsmith asked for some of my reloads and said he would make a new front sight blade, mill off the old blade and pin in the new one. And, he would regulate the sights for my ammunition.
This the gun in question:
Saturday, at twenty-five yarda, my first ten round group was one inch to the right, at three-o'clock. I estimated two clicks left windage was needed, so took the old Army practice of doubling my estimate and took four clicks left.
Next ten rounds one inch left, so came back two right, and Bingo!, centered.
I'm a happy shooter.
That is a nice looking toy Bob.
Good looking revolver there Bob.
That is very nice. I'm dying to shoot my new blackhawk. I have to wait for it some more, though...stooopid California.
Those grips look good, too!
Who made them for you, if you don't mind me asking?
Not at all, I'm always glad to talk guns.
