Thread: Finally got my Single 10 and......

    Default Finally got my Single 10 and......

    I hate the fiber sights. They are so bright they look fuzzy. I put a Single Six front sight on it and used a permanent marker on the back sight and now it looks like what I'm accustomed too. I was able to shoot the first 10 rounds into the end of a Coke can at 25 yards. I'll consider that plenty good enough!

    I was smart enough to call it good enough after the first can I was using a picnic table for a rest so I mighta been cheatin a bit. However I bought the Single 10 with the idea that I would be able keep all 10 rounds in the black on a B-3 target free handed at 50 ft. and I'm going to be disappointed if I can't.

    EKC:
    I have a Fiber Optic Front sight on my Ruger MKIII, and I was gonna hire *Andy* to switch them out for regular square sights, but by now I'm kinda used to the fiber. Mine has a DIFFERENT rear sight also. It's doesn't have a square notch, but a shallow triangle with a white mark in the center.

    The Fiber Optic does seem to bleed over, some, but paying attention to the luminous mark helps with that.

    If you have the same sights design that I have on my MKIII, I suggest you not make any hasty decisions about changing them out. We just MIGHT learn to like them.

    Otherwise, there's always Andy.

    As a (still) budding OLD pistoleer, I have a nother suggestion. Adjust your sights from off-hand shooting, and not shooting from a rest. I can't shoot a handgun from a Rest worth a hoot.

    Good Luck witcher new vintcher.

    I have a MK II that had a fiber front sight. I replaced it with a 1/16" ivory bead. Still have the "V" notch rear. Good combo for me.

    I also took a green fiber front sight from a Redhawk and put a dab of white paint on the fuzzy green spot. That helped a bunch.

    Mk IIIs come with extry Red and Green Fiber Optic inserts. I've been using the Red.

    I was just looking at one of thoughs today. Did that single 10 come with a 22 mag cylinder?

    Nope just the 22lr. However the 22 mag needs more than 5.5 inches to burn it's powder. Velocity gains with a 22 mag over a 22lr in a handgun are very small. You get more noise and more flash as all of the extra powder burns outside of the barrel after the boolit is long gone. We shot one of the Single Six convertibles through a chrony once first with the 22lr and then with the 22 mag and velocity difference was around 100 fps. I yusta have some 22 mag cylinders laying around but I've given them all away. Had this Single Ten come with a mag cylinder I would have given it away as well.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I really wanted to play with my new toy over the long weekend but it's graduation time around here and though my kids have been out of the nest for 10 years we still got invites to 40 of them graduation receptions. Mother Dearest informed me that I was going to most of them so there went the week end!
