I didn’t have time to test more loads, but these targets are the best groups I got at the range today. These were shot with my Dan Wesson 715 .357 Magnum with the EWK fiber optic front sight and the Williams Firesight rear sight. All targets were at 10 yards, 18 rounds each, offhand.

The top target is .38 Special, 130gr FMJ factory loaded target loads. The bottom target is .357 Magnum, 158gr FMJ under 15.8 gr of H110.

This gun does all of the work, I just point and pull the trigger.

I bought mine from Bud’s Gunshop(https://www.budsgunshop.com). It is the Williams Firesight(model 70958)for the Ruger GP 100. You can only buy them in sets, so unless you own a GP 100, you’ll wind up with a front sight you can’t use.

YEE HAW!!! I like the EWK Fiber Optic front sight.  Haven’t tried the fire sight rear sights.  So when you order from buds is it just the rear sight OR do you get both a rear and front sight??  Can you take a pic of how the sights look on your gun??

they should let them hunt, I have answered, yes – remembering that it was
one of the best parts of my education – *make* them hunters.”

Same here, I’d like to see how the sights look. smile

*edit* I see you posted your sight pics in THIS THREAD.

Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.

Thanks for the link to the pic.  Is that rear sight only going to work on a small frame DW??

As far as I know, it will only fit the Dan Wesson small frame revolvers.

It will also fit later model large frames because they also used the small frame style rear sight.
