Hey everyone, this is my first post on the forums. I purchased my first handgun about a few weeks ago and have noticed something that's really irritating me about it. The front sight looks very poorly constructed, and I mean bad. I ignored it at first over the excitement of having the revolver and not wanting to make a big deal out of it if it were just a cosmetic issue. I took it out to my friend's property to try it out, and at approx. 25-30 yards, I wasn't able to hit the target itself once out of about 50 rounds! It wasn't a big target, more so on the small side, (green metal bird that spins around when hit) but I would have expected to hit it once, and instead hit the left metal leg stand. I'm very open to me being a terrible shot, but I understand how to aim a revolver with fixed sights and am decently disciplined in recoil control. (.357 isn't even bad with a good grip, in my opinion) That made me pretty disappointed, so I reached out to the Customer Service line and spoke with a guy who instructed me to get a set of pliars to try and bend the sight to the correct position; and then see if it worked. Worried about the warranty, I didn't want to attempt. I'm not thoroughly familiar with the conditions, but it seemed strange how that was the only recommendation given? Maybe I wasn't assertive enough. I've browsed other forums that have criticized other people asking to do that to a stainless steel front sight. Very confused on where to go from here. Also, the entire barrel just seems asymmetrical... which very well could just be cosmetic, but isn't really my concern. I would like to hit my target and get the properly functioning revolver that I paid for. Here's some photos to give a better perspective of my concerns.
