Default Rossi Ranch Hand Truglo Sight.



Advertise Here

Some owners have experienced a problem with the front sight being too short.
Rossi will replace it for free but you have to send it in and they were out of stock on the sight when I called.
I elected to add a Truglo instead. I got the TG95530RR .530. I sighted it in with the laser and it seems to be spot on. I did have to hit the front corner of the base with the Dremel to get it past the front bracket.

My local range has been closed but is supposed to open this week. Range report to follow soon hopefully.

One minor issue. The base sit above the barrel a tiny bit so I will fill the gap with a rubber grommet before I shoot it.

Yes, Blackhawk makes one that fit pretty well. Not real easy to conceal without a long coat

Well, I finally got a chance to ring out the new sight. All I can say is, "Fantastic."
I had to tap it once to get the windage spot on but the elevation is perfect at 7-10 yards with the rear sight on the bottom notch. I did end up putting a rubber "O" ring around the base to fill in the tiny gap. I could have used a metal spacer, I suppose, but this seems to do the trick just fine.

I let several people try this out at the range the other day. Two were experienced shooter, one had previously shot it with the original, gold bead. All were favorably impressed with theTru-glow. One fellow, who was shooting for the first time since he was a kid, was amazed at how well he could shoot with the Ranch Hand. His very first shot was dead center on the red dot of his target at 30 feet. Subsequent ones were either touching or within a finger's width. He been shooting .38 Spl out of a 5" Model 19 just minutes before, and was grouping about 6" at the same distance.

I already have Hi-Viz on my Ruger Mark II and love it. I am thinking of adding these to more things. Next would probably be my Henry .22lr lever action.

I have never had a problem with any kind of .38 SPl or .357. I shoot whatever I have at hand. I had some really cheap Armscor stuff that ran beautifully.

It does require some break in. I would clean it before shooting and make sure there aren't any burrs or rough spots. I also worked the action quite a bit to take out any stiffness in the beginning. It was a little stiff to load in the beginning also. They do make a lighter spring for the tube magazine but mine was okay after some use. I find that pushing the rounds in with my pinky works best. (I start it in with thumb and forefinger and then push in with the pinky.)

*UPdate* I did find a round that my Rossi did not like. Federal Champion RN lead. It was all over the place.

I have seen guy put a buckskin cover around the buttstock with some padding in it to get a better fit for the chin/cheek area. I may have to give that a try if I can find a nice piece of buckskin at Tandy (in the scrap box)

Would you mind posting a close up of the front sight you installed?

Sorry, didn't know the original picture had disappeared.

I also ended up replacing the rear sights.
