Range Report on "One Ragged Hole" sights

Ordered a pair from Brownells. With each set you get one small and one large. They state the size, but I don't have the paperwork with me now.

Simply made, stamped from steel and finished with a black parkerized like coating.

Both installed easily. One on a MkII and the other on a NM Blackhawk. A nice benny is that you get 2 sights in one bag so you can try the different sizes for different uses.

The small on on the Mk II shot great. I felt as if it improved my groups a bit and made for very quick shooting. Really just felt great and shot fast! However, had to move the sight base as low as it would go and even then I have to go with a 6 o'clock hold to put rounds into the bull. Minor downside and it might just be my weapon.

The larger sight on the Blackhawk also worked very well at close range. However, at 25m my groups were horrible (weren't really groups). Not sure if this is a training issue for me or if the sight hole is just too large for that use.

Overall, I'm happy with them. Money well spent (under $30) even if I just use the small hole on the MkII.

I would like to see them let you order the sizes you get and make them available in other diameters. I'm going to order one for my Winchester next time I need stuff from Brownells. I think that will be a real improvement over the factory sights. Will probably order another small one for the Blackhawk also if I can't get resolve the poor groups at a distance.

Also, I'm going to take them over to my Father's when I get a chance and see if they help his poor eyesight any.
