Front Sights

Bowen Classic Arms offers a wide variety of front sight blades for popular Ruger, Smith & Wesson and Colt/USFA revolvers. Largely unavailable anywhere else, these parts will enable custom pistol-smiths and shooters alike to easily produce front sight installations that meet their specific requirements. All too often, existing front sight blades are too short for proper sight regulation, especially with modern heavy-bullet hunting ammo. Others are invisible and can be improved upon with better shapes and styles and simply the crisp, sharp blades that only custom work can supply. These parts represent real savings in time and trouble to gunsmiths who would otherwise have to make such parts from scratch at considerable expense.
