When I read about people hunting iwtha single action revolver, its always one with massive target sights isntalled or a high powered scope.

Is a single action revolver with only the fixed sights usefull for deer hunting?

And is it better to get a nice longer barrel for it?

I hunted javalina, coyote and deer for years with a .41 Ruger Blackhawk.

The only mod I ever made to it was to put a set of Pachmeyer grips on it.

Took most of the game at less than 100 yards, never needed any more range where I hunted, didn't have the visibility in most cases.
It worked fine.

My backup gun for hog hunting is a Ruger Bisley Vaquero, 5.5", .45 Colt, with handloads. Worked up a good load using 300 gr WFNGC cast bullet over H-110, and "adjusted" the sights to that load. Doesn't have a lot of versatility, but it's awfully darned accurate out to 100 yards, and I don't have any business shooting iron sights past that distance anyway.

This is opinion, and worth very little more than you paid for it.
