How to modify a S&W sight for a Taurus M44

Fortunately,  this was such a quick job, I forgot to take pictures of the process itself.  I started with a extra SDM S&W sight I had laying around.  The S&W sight had a square mount and then I overlaid the Taurus sight and scribed the radius onto it.  With a belt sander I reshaped the sight to scribed line.  Then with a file remove some metal from each side, just enough for it to fit the mount on the M44.  Now take a drill bit that is smaller than the pin and start a hole through the pin hole into the sight, just enough where you can see it.  Then take the sight out and finish drilling the hole on a drill press. A little cold blueing will cover the bare metal and reinstall.  I added some loctite red to give it a little extra hold and a gunsmith recommended it as a general good practice when staking sites.  Remember to let it cure and the gunsmith went as far as not returning the gun until it was cured!

Enjoy your new sight!

    That is a pretty sweet job. Love all of the Taurus revolvers (with laser sight of course!)
