Need higher front sight.

Recommended Posts

I bought a set of LPA adjustable FO sights for a S&W 625-6 in .45 Colt.  The LPA rear is about 0.15” higher than the factory sight and the front is 0.06 lower, so the gun shoots 8” high at 25 feet.  With the factory front, it still shoots 5” high.

Factory front - 0.34", LPA front = 0.28"

Looks like I need a front sight (preferably FO) that’s 0.4” tall and I can’t find one.  Any ideas?

Oh, and it's a pinned front sight.

Not fiber optic,  but I have welded up and refiled more than one front sight.  Might be an option if you cant find a FO or something else that will work.  You might also try faster bullets

Since I couldn’t find a suitable front sight, I bought a sheet of 1/8” florescent orange acrylic and made my own. 

I have similar sights on three of my other Smiths and love them, but those sights aren’t high enough.

I took the gun to the range yesterday and it’s just the right height - 0.4”.  With the rear sight cranked up just 3 clicks it’s dead on at 50 feet.

The .45 Colt is at the bottom of this pic.

LPA distributor is Fusion Firearms in FL.  Give them a call.
