Seeing as you ask, why not!!

Two pics.

One of the original sight and the small diameter 5.5mm peephole (made by me), and another of the larger "close range" 7mm peep-hole I made, on the Redhawk.

As you can see my blueing was not as uniform as the standard painted sight, but dark enough to show the glow-in-the-dark paint I've used.

Also the maching is not pretty to the metal worker's eye, but all was done by hand with either a small dremel type thing or hand files.

The main thing is that the sight hole is central and concentric, and the lugs fit the sight carrier so I can live with slightly uneven edges here and there.
