    The availability of this sight might have just sold me.

    I have one of these on my 856. Today I was shooting some revolvers and this sight was the most visible.

    What weight bullet does it shoot to POA?

    I've been mostly shooting my 138 Bayou wadcutter at 700 fps and a few light loaded 158 grain. Today I shot some 135 Gold Dots at steel and they were in the same group as the other stuff I was shooting. Pictures in my latest LCR post.

    Considering the apparent similarity of these two front sights:

    to the factory front on my SP101, I am wondering if the orange Ameriglo would fit? It's probably worth $30 to find out.

    I did some measuring. My Ruger Sp101 sight is .125" wide and .145" tall.
    My Taurus 856 Ameriglo front sight is .115" wide and .170" tall. This is predrilled and may or may not line up with the holes in your SP101. Plus being taller, it would have you hitting low.

    Here's what you want for your SP101. https://www.geminicustoms.com/small-wonder-sights/

    Thanks for checking that out. The gold bead sight would be pretty sweet.
