    Blued Sights on Stainless Steel Ruger

    I have a Ruger SP-101 for CCW. I notice that Ruger tends to leave blued front sights on their stainless steel guns.

    Is this because the blued sight reduces glare when sighting the gun during daylight hours?

    I would welcome your comments.

    Yes.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    For some very functional and cool sight options for the SP101, look at the "Wondersights" offered by Gemini Customs. They have fiber optic, gold bead, and a night sight front sight. They look well made. You can buy them and install yourself if you feel capable or send the gun to them.
