I was in a gun shop over the weekend and took a fancy to a stainless Ruger Redhawk in 45LC. Still thinking I may go back and get it! Something that I really liked about this gun was the iron sights. . .there was a u-notched rear and a brass bead front. I was aiming it inside the store and then walked out the backdoor aiming through the wood lot and my eyes really seemed to pick up targets better. My iron sighted Rugers all have the square notched rear sights and I've been wanting to go to something different that I can see better (hit 46 and eyes are getting fuzzy). I've looked on the internet with no such luck. Anyone here on the forum know of where I can get a set of these for a Super Blackhawk Hunter. . .it excepts the same sight as on the Redhawk and GP100. Also, has anyone had experience with the Warren One Hole Sight? This too has my interest. I appreciate any feed back from you guys. Thanks.

I got a V notch rear sight and front brass bead from Ruger years ago. Works quite well also.

I am also interested in the U notch and gold bead sight. Did you find a supplier? Would like to get one for my SBH Hunter. Didn't care for the V notch I tried.

Thanks.

jp49,

I was very fortunate that a fellow forum member reached out with a spare set he offered up to me. I am reluctant to say, but if you choose to, Reeder Custom Guns lists them on their website. I was also told to check in with some of the silhouette shooters as they were quite fond of them too. I have not been able to find a true U-notch blade, these are V-notch style blades. I'm on the hunt for just a blank blade so as I could file in my own U-notch. If you should happen to come across any of these, please keep me in mind and if I come across another set of the sight you're after I'll let you know.
