Who makes them for your Rugers? Maybe they make a replacement blade for the S&W? If not, any competent gunsmith should be able to make one for you. The only limiting factor would be money.

Warren custom outdoor, and no they do not make one for the s&w. I think they are about 25.00 for two.

You intrigued me. I ordered the Warren Custom Outdoor aperture sight to try out on my Ruger Redhawk Kodiak Backpacker. I placed the order online and got an e-mail receipt, but no shipping information yet. Hopefully it will come in time to try it out before winter arrives. It comes soon up here.

Took my .357 flattop out to practice this morning, am getting comfortable enough with it I might try deer hunting with it this year.

The Warren Custom apertures arrived today. I am sorry to report I am unimpressed. The right "leg" on the sight blade is shaped incorrectly to be able to engage the click detents on the windage screw, so it just turns freely. That is not acceptable for my application. The blades are a bit thin for their height also. It would not take much to bend them. I must admit I am a bit bummed out, because I was really excited about having a peep sight for my Ruger revolvers.

Try Trijicon. It will be a night sight and both will have to be replaced. The link below does installation.

Peep?

Not sure I would call this a peep sight.

Where is the round disk with the super small hole that functions as the rear sight?

You would have to have it threaded for an insert or sleeved. The Trijicon is a ghost ring and meant for combat type shooting. You might try calling Skinner Sights. They do some nice work and it might intrigue him.

I found this online: https://www.tandemkross.com/Eagle-Ey...ts-_p_600.html

I might order one along with a Williams Fire Sight rear and see if it will work on my Redhawk. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1005990985

Mike, sorry you do not like the sights, they are a little thin but work fine for me. Looked up the tool tech sight, looks like a good sight, but half the price of a new gun, no thanks.

I have a rear sight similar to this on my Glock 34 long slide pistol. It helped my shooting quite a bit!

I have used a large opening "Peep" sight on rifles all my life for hunting because they are very fast if use properly. To work properly the Peep sight has to be close to your eye so you can look through the sight without looking at it. So normally they are mounted at the rear of the rifle action or on the grip of the stock.

The problem of a peep sight on a pistol is the arms extend grip used to shoot a pistol. The peep sight will be too far from your eye to look through it. Rather than looking through the peep sight, you will have to look at the peep sight to align the front site and the target. Like we do with normal pistol sights. There won't be any speed advantage to a peep sight mounted on a pistol.

Try it. You'd be surprised. It works quite well.
