    The original rear sight on my Dan Wesson 357 Supermag was loose as h*ll, so I replaced it with a Bo-mar as many people advised me to do. (The model designed for my Dan Wesson, of course!). After installing it, It's securely mounted, but it just doesnt look right to me, with too muuch "overhang" off the backstrap. Is this normal, or is something wrong? Thanks-

    I think it's normal, within a limited context. Most of the sights were used on Silhouette guns where the shooters' wanted maximum sight radius. They were very good for the purpose intended, but not much else. For general use a Millett might be better.

    Old Fluff has nailed it. Bo-Mar sights made their name in bullseye competition, and remain champions of accuracy to this day. Millet sights are usually much more practical, but don't provide the extended sight radius.
