Years ago there you could have an insert made in an existing front sight. A gunsmith friend did several for me. Yours looks like one of those. He has been dead for years and I miss the old guy. Wish I had taken more time to spend in his shop instead of working so much. Try Brownells tech dept, he probably bought from them. Maybe some of the guys here can offer more info.

Call Taurus back.... you might have got an uninformed individual. I know on my .22 Model 94 it has an insert (not a sticker). I wouldn't think they had stickers in use back then either.... cleaning solvents would have removed a sticker.

I replaced mine with two Popsicle sticks clamped on each side then I added epoxy glue with glow green paint mixed in. It takes longer to dry because of the paint. I then trimmed with a shop knife. Hopes this helps.

The insert is cast in place. In the past I have clamped the barrel in a fixture and made a dam out of an old soda can. Then mix a little fingernail polish in clear epoxy and pour it into the mould. Be sure to coat the mould/dam with floor wax to keep the epoxy from sticking. When the epoxy has begun to dry but is not completely hard remove the dam and use a razor blade to complete shaping the insert.

Thanks everyone for the ideas I also thought about getting some of that red liquad plastic stuff that you can dip your tool handles in

That's exactly was I was speaking of! :thumb: And, if you can't get it in the exact color you want, you can still paint it with another color afterwards!

That's a very good idea.
