I love it! It looks pretty much like mine, except mine is blued. I like those grips, too. I need to get a set to help tame the bite a bit..

briarhopper, does your DW 44 have removable front sight??? If it does I can send you a white or yellow insert front sight....Let me know and I will get it out to you......There`s no way I will let an Alaskan walk out his front door without a front sight he can see

Love that 44 spec too. I sometimes put 44 special ammo in my DW and carry it in a holster I made for a daily carry. Not often, but sometimes. With the .44 special ammo, a 4-year old could shoot it. Very, very tame.

There is a pin-hole in the front of the sight under the blade, so I assume that is for a removable blade. I think I read you push a pin in and it releases a plunger, and the blade lifts out???

BH, I believe you can use a tiny allen wrench to back out a set screw holding in the front sight...see if that`s what you have...
PM your address to me and I will send you the front sight...white or yellow????? I was thinking yellow in case of snow but its your choice.....also send extra set screw....
