    I don't think you can.

    You can buy a whole new red ramp sight from S&W, but not the red insert.

    Or there are casting resins you can buy to put it in wet and let it cure to hardness.

    Heres how.

    That was a pretty cool video. Nicely explained.

    That would prolly be your best bet.

    The ramp front sight on the -4 models aren't pinned in, so replacing the whole front sight would be a pain.
