    Lost my front insert on my M44?

    Pulled out the M44 to clean after my last range excursion and realized I no longer had my orange insert. I’ve looked on the internet and have not secured good information on where to get a new one.

    Does anyone have a good parts site to share?

    Then there's Numrich

    Or Taurus...maybe they will send one for free.

    That's happened to me before too!
    I just painted mine with fluorescent red enamel paint.

    Since I got my Tracker, I was wondering how secure the sticker insert is, and how long before it falls off. So how long before yours was lost Moto? There's a few options I can think of to replace it. Either paint, or a better sticker material. I've always had the best luck with 3M products so I looked up their choices and found these.

    I have about 250 rounds through it but it was used when I bought it. I really don’t believe it was shot much before I got it.
    it is not the sticker style. It was an actual insert. I lol try and post a picture of it to show you. Name:  9D3E6679-0094-45C8-B693-283C1731DC5D.jpeg

    Here's a link to the process of repairing the insert. However, Brownell's insert kit is $60 so it might be cheaper to replace the whole sight. I'd do like Cz mentioned above and give Taurus a call.

    Mix a bit of epoxy and fill the dovetail. After it sets, sand it down with an emery board and paint whatever color you want. I've seen JBWeld used for this too.

    Wow. Just looked at that link. That’s a serious time consuming process.
    I was trying to find the year of manufacture and couldn’t come up with when it was made. Maybe someone here might know. Name:  01150BB6-9FF5-4304-A1DB-ABFE3D25FE36.jpeg
