Installing a JW rear sight blade on a S&W revo, easy right?

It took me two hours :)

 

First it didn't fit, then the replacement screw didn't fit, then the bit from Brownells didn't fit.

 

Then I lost the little detent spring, then I lost the little detent. 

 

I should have let a gunsmith do it :)

Paying for?  I remember you grabbing those sights pretty darn swiftly off the prize table back in August lol....

 

 

Haha, did you see the cheap ass comment?  I've paid for many of them, was very pleased to get one off a prize table.

Call me crazy, but I ordered two more. One for my 617 and one for my 686+

 

There's no way it can take me two hours again, right?

I have the Weigand sight on my 627, and it is perfect!  Back in the day, I mailed my rear sight to Weigand, and they installed the blade and mailed it back to me.  Unfortunately, I just saw on their website that they no longer install them.  However, they are really nice.  They do move when you push down on them, but they spring back into place, and I have never lost my zero.
