    Ruger SP101

    Ok, I just bought a new 2 1/2" Ruger SP101 in .357. I was wondering if there are options for replacing the front site. Is there any kind of night sight available for these great little guns? I think it would make the gun perfect. I also don't want to break the bank with a purchase. Any ideas folks?
    God Bless America!!

    I am a big fan of XS Sights. They don't have them listed on their website for the Ruger, but if you call them, they will hook you up. I had a trijicon on there for a while, and I was not too enthused about the glowing agent.







    I would recommend having a smith install it for you. It has to be drilled and pinned.

    +1, as soon as I saw the title this is the first thought I had, but Danimal beat me to it. I love XS Big Dots!!!

    I put a mep on mine, easy install, just drill a hole basically. I like the fact that its the same shape and size as the factory front sight so your sight picture dosn't change all that much.

    I have XS Big Dot Tritiums on my XD9sc and love them. I like them so much better over a standard 3 dot sight configuration. Gives my middle aged eyes a markedly faster target acquisition.

    I fully intend to put XS Big Dots on more of my guns! I just have to quit buying whole guns and spend the dough on the guns I already have.
