I notice how S&W M29 and M629 mostly all have pinned front sights and Ruger introduced the pinned sight on the new 4" Redhawk and the Super Redhawk Alaskan. Taurus is also pinning the front sight on their heavy revolvers and they were one of the last companies to offer milled front sights. I like the dovetailed front sight on my Super Blackhawk Hunter and I like the screwed front sight on the Blackhawk. For a smaller more portable revolver I think it would be nice to find one with a milled front sight. The gun companies are advertising pinned front sights as an advantage because they are easily replaced. Is this just a way to cut costs or are pinned front sights really an advantage for most of you? Personally, I have never had to replace a front sight on any revolver but I'm careful not to abuse my gear and I usually keep it holstered 99% of the time.
