Hello, I’m new to the forum but have been reading ya’lls wisdom for a minute or two.  I finally took my OEM inch barrel 15-2 .357 to an indoor range and couldn’t see the sights for jack.  I originally thought I was getting old and needed a new glasses prescription, but I could see the sights on when firing other things so this ruled out both my eyeballs and lighting.

Is there an adjustable rear dot and front sight post set available?

dwf-welcome to the  dwf Darren !

Regarding better sights, I concur with DakotaJack on the EWK fiber optic front sight.

For rear sights I recommend the Williams Firesight. Get the one for the GP 100. Unfortunately it comes as a set with the front sight you can’t use. Maybe you could resell the front sight on ebay. I have used the Williams sight on my DW 44, DW 15-2, both with the EWK fiber optic front sight as mentioned above, and for my Ruger MK III Hunter. You can probably tell that I like them a lot.

I kept looking for better sights. I bought a model 12 thinking those big sights would help. Nope. Tried fiber optic. No help. I am nearsighted and farsighted because of age. I had bifocals. The front sight was too far away for reading lenses and to close for the distance lenses. I got trifocals that have what they call computer distance lenses in the middle. My shooting improved tremendously.

I am pretty blind, might try one of those EWK fiber optics. But I found a big improvement for me anyway. Was just swapping my red sight out for one of my yellow ones I have. Works much better for me anyway.

This is uninteresting fact. If you are near sighted, red will appear sharper, blue will be blurry. I don’t know why, but it’s true. I noticed this one evening where I could look at a red neon sigh and a blue neon sigh a couple feet apart…blue ws very fuzzy. 

Hence, I use a red fiberoptic on my Dam, and I painted bright green on my S&W model 60, it was brighter than red paint.

I just picked up a set of SSP shooting glasses with the bi-focal on top; outstanding! No more looking down my nose or having issues with seeing far and focusing on the front sight a second later.  Highly recommended- clear/ amber/ smoke lenses.

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....
