I just bought a four-inch, stainless, Ruger .357 magnum GP100 (the KGP-141 model with full under-lug and adjustable rear sight). I understand a "gold dot" drop-in front sight is available for this revolver. I really like the gold dot sights on my "N" frame Smiths and would happily buy one for this Ruger.

I've tried Dillon's, Ashley's and Brownell's with no luck. Any idea where I can order it?

Thanks.

RWK, I don't know who carries it but have you tried Ruger? George

George,

Thanks for your reply. The simplest answer is usually the best. Discovered it's the same drop-in front sight useable in the Redhawk; my range ordered one for me late yesterday.

Regards.

I put the gold dot sights on my GP about a year ago, ordered them direct from Ruger. Be prepaired to use up most of the upward adjustment on the rear sight getting it zeroed in. They're great for precision shooting but now I thinking about swapping them out for a set of Williams fire sights.

All my Rugers but one (a 7.5" .357 Redhawk that wears the gold-dot front) wear Millett orange-ramp fronts.

41, 44, 45 5.5" Redhawks, two 4" GP100's.
