    I went shooting with my newest gun and I can't even pick up the front sight when it starts to get dark is there any company that makes a new front sight for a taurus 431? I looked on midway and didnt find anything.

    I just looked at the front sight and it is just part of the barrel is there a custom gunsmith who would even work on a taurus?

    Any capable gunsmith with proper machine shop should be able to put a drop-in front sight on your 431. Perhaps a XS Night Sight similar to what is on the S&W Nightguards would be to your liking?

    There are special coloring kits for sights. I have a stainless steel revolver that the sight is integral with the barrel like yours, that I have trouble with in the field in daylight. I'm going to try paint before getting serious about the machining route.

    Yes I would very much like a night sight with the fiber optic tube. Also is it a special kind of paint meant to go on a front sight?

    Yes, it is a special paint, just for sights. Check Midway, I'm going to when I get time.

    Nail polish works great and there are tons of colors to choose from.

    Ask you wife for her opinion! :D

    My wife doesn't even know what nail polish is I'm gonna talk to her mother about it she is always painting nails. I called a couple of gunsmiths and they told me they would touch a taurus is there any gunsmith who will?
