617 sight in



Log in to see fewer ads
I installed a new Vortex Venom red dot on my S&W 617 and did a rough sight in at 15 yards. We finally got a cool day so I decided to refine the sight in at 45 yards. I used CCI Mini-mag HP's, CCI SV, and Aguila HV 40 gr. All had been run through the Waltz die to either hollow point them or in the case of the Mini-Mag's I just opened up the existing hollow point. I was very surprised by the accuracy of the 617 especially in my hands. [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG]

That's some great shooting at 45 yards. Here's 10 shots from a VQ LLV on a Ruger frame at 50 yards with an Ultradot tube sight. I'm thinking of temporarily mounting a scope and trying again.

My 617 is my second favorite range gun, right behind my Victory.

Flangster,

What grips are those? They really change the looks of the gun, in a very good way.

LOL. Funny, I was thinking the same thing about Prarieviper's. I am pretty sure mine are Hogues. I believe this is the item at Midway:

or possibly this one:

My grips are Ahrends Retro Combat in goncalo alves. The finish is pure tung oil.
