I have been using a Weig-a-tinny mount. You remove the rear sight, and screw in the rail in the existing frame holes. Less elegant, perhaps, than the Allchin, but it works for me:

Well I went back to my LGS and swapped out the Trijicon for another Fastfire III. I'm happy with my other one so it was no big deal to get another.

I figured it was easier and much faster to get a different sight than it would be to procure a different mount and it still not fit.

Now for some new grips.

I opted for the C-More Red Dot with a 12 minute dot for Steel Challenge Matches. The 617 is my favorite revolver. It's had a lot of work done to it and boasts a 6 1/5 pound double action trigger.

Do you get sticky extraction? With a clean gun I get few drums worth and than when I try to eject they stick to the point that I have to hammer eject rod with something for them to come out. I even got quick loader for this gun but this issue is preventing me from enjoying shooting this gun.

Finally got it mounted.

Had some parts problems from Leupold, but finally got it mounted today.

I had this problem with cheap ammo, which I don't use anymore. Mini mags or copper plated boolits run well. It also helps to clean the cylinder every few hundred rounds and keep it a little wet.

A nylon bristle brush through the chambers every now and then is all it takes while at the range.

Well...I was happy with the Leupold mount until I saw the pic of Furhunter's Allchin mount. Thanks, dude. You cost me another $45...

Allchin mount came today. Much cleaner install than the Leupold mount IMO. Two criticisms are: The screws supplied with the Allchin mount are too big for the holes in the DP Pro. If I had not already purchased the Leupold mount and had the screws from that mount, I would not have been able to mount the DP Pro on the Allchin mount. The second is the nylon post inserts supplied with the Allchi mount are a bit small for the recesses on the DeltaPoint. Probably not an issue on a .22LR revolver, but might be with a larger caliber. Overall, however, I believe this is a much better mounting option for the DeltaPoint on a S&W revolver. I will probably use a little Acraglas Gel to bed the DeltaPoint to the too-small posts on the Allchin.
