    I need to replace my front site on my S&W 657 with 7 1/2 barrel (41 mag). I am having a hard time finding any information or locations on replacing them. I use this for hunting and I need to see it in low light as well as heavy cover. I like the sights that I have seen on some of the 44mag (the ones with the red front ramp). I don't want to paint the front sight, so I would be interested in fiber or something that really stands out. Thanks for the help...

    Brownells and Midway sell fiber optic front sights for N frame S&W's. You don't say what suffix your gun is. You'll need to know if the existing sight is pinned or the newer style with the hex screw.

    Not sure what your refering to when you say " what suffix your gun is". I looked at the front sight and it appears to be pinned in. Did they change the way the sights are fixed? This gun came from S&W in October 2006 (according to the shipping label). I have seen those sights at midway, but not sure which one would fit. Thanks again for any help...
