    Rough Rider grove sight leaves a lot to be desired

    I never noticed on the inspection of the revolver when I accepted it, sure did at the range though. The grove sight on my rough Rider.22 revolver leaves a lot to be desired....actually it is real bad. Name:  SAM_1684.JPG

    I've seen a lot of SA revolvers, shot a lot, and own a few. But I've never seen anything like that. So, how's it shoot?

    As above - contact Heritage for warranty work if still in warranty period. That is unacceptable.

    Not sure what could be done to correct this problem. It is not like the sight is a separate part of the pistol...it is a molded part of the frame.

    You are correct, they will have to replace the pistol.

    If it were mine and warranty was expired I would grind it level, file the notch and then file down the front blade until the point of aim and impact were the same.
