    Ruger wrangler front sight

    My new Ruger wrangler shoots about 4 low, anyone try and file down the front sight blade. Seems about everyone complains about the same issue.

    Anything after market available to fix this?

    My first one needed about a sixteenth filed from the front sight to get it right. My second one was on from the get go. I mostly use Mini Mags.

    Do your calculation before you start filing … https://www.brownells.com/aspx/learn...aspx?lid=13093.

    I for one would like for all the revolvers to come with a front sight that is a little too high. That way you can adjust it by judicious filing. It is a lot harder to go the other way on a sight that is too short. my .02 anyway, james

    It is really not that big of a deal to take a file to it. Obviously go slow, and shoot in between. What could be better than more shooting and POI moving in the right direction? If you are not that skilled with a file, I'd practice a little bit first. Good luck.
    How meaningful can you be, there is only so much to say before you are talking too much.

    Yep, I had to file mine down a bit.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me I am that fool.

    You can use the calculator above or remember CRED. Correction is Radius times Error divided by Distance. Convert all factors to inches before crunching numbers
