If you want to eliminate the short sight radius use a red dot.


Yup, makes it a non issue.

Yes, the 4" is ideal, time to move it from the top of your list to your holster.

I'm fond of Ultradot red dots. Had one on my 6" 629. Held up great with no problems.

UltraDot or Bushnell TRS-25. I have both and have had them on 45/70's and 12 ga slug guns as well as 44 mag. They both hold up to the recoil. The Ultradot has a lifetime warranty. The Bushnell may be better on your 4" just due to size.
