I also replaced the original rear sight with the newest style rear sight.
The only complaint I've read about these barrels is that the recoil is excessive compared to it's same length bull barrel counterpart.
I cant wait to get a chance to shoot it. I believe I'll start with standard 45 Colt loads, before trying any of the heavy loads.
Does anyone else have any experience with these older octagon barrels?
It's hard to see to octagon barrel with the forend swallowing it up.
