    got the taller front sight installed and took it out for a bit of sighting in. the taller front sight was enough to bring the point of impact down. i also have plenty of adjustability which is really helpful cause I'm having a heck of a time being accurate with this sidearm. gonna need plenty of range time (and a couple more kegs of h110...if ya hear of any sources let me know, I'm currently on 'empty') to get to where i'm confident in my capabilities with it. i'm okay with that as i really enjoy shooting it and thoroughly enjoy the challenge of becoming competent with a new sidearm. i've definitely appreciated all the feedback provided!

    I put Meprolight sights on my 480,they are wonderful at night in a tent, you always know where that gun is due to the glow of the 3-dot system. They are pretty rugged and have been on the gun for more than 1500 rounds of full power 480's. They run around $125 on Amazon. The big dot would work well too. Jim

    2 different rear sight blade heights are also available.

    so i finally got a new front sight. it is 0.533" high. i went yesterday to sight it in and ran out of adjustment with it still being nearly 8" high at 25 yds. i have the v-notch rear sight. i assume if i switch back to the square notch i might get a bit more adjustment; also, as i thought more about it, if i got a taller front sight (0.610") it would bring the point of impact down a bit more also. right? so by getting the taller front sight and switching back to the square notch in the rear do y'all think it would bring the point of impact down enough?
    i sure appreciate all the suggestions on sights. there were many that i wanted but were also incompatible with my particular side arm so i ended up getting the hi-viz front.

    so i thought about it a bit (never a good thing) and correct me if i'm wrong...with the shorter sight i'll have more close range adjustment and with the taller sight i'll have more longer distance adjustment?

    When the phrase "I seem to have plenty of adjustment left" is no longer applicable, you will be driven do buy a taller or shorter sight.

    I put Williams Firesights on my .480 Super Red Hawk. The shoot ability went up tremendously. Makes for tremendously easier sighting over stock, especially when it's dusky. Man I love my Ruger.

    I've seen broken sights of all types on just about ever make of handgun. More a sign of abusing handling than a certain type of signt, IMHO. I believe the new Talo Toklats comes with standard and gold bead/ v notch rears? Not sure they'd work on a regular Super Redhawk?
