A few weeks ago, I bought a 4" model 627 that I love to shoot. I have two problems/questions about this gun.

1. While trying to clean the ports on the barrel, I got solvent on the front sight. To my surprise, the nice orange part of the sight that helps me shoot so well turned out to be a sticker that just slipped right off. I managed to get it to stick again, but it is a matter of time before it comes off again. Does anyone have any suggestions for this problem?

2. This is my first stainless ported revolver. What is the best way/tool for cleaning the ports and the barrel around the ports? I want to get the power burn residue off, but I don't want to scratch the finish. I used a brass brush with minimal success.

Thanks in advance for your helpful answers!

can always try the old trick of brightly colored enamel paint, dayglo colored nail polish, or you can spend a few bucks and get sight paint kit from a gun store.

A sticker? I thought they were inserts. I would call Taurus CS and tell them what happened. I bet they would just send you a new sticker.

Clean powder burns off your gun with Flitz. All my Stainless guns look allmost like new. No burn marks on the face of the cylinder. It drives my buds crazy. Just call me Mr. Anal.

Yep, paint it back. Testors day glo orange or insignia orange work well. I've been wanting to experiment with some of those glow in the dark fingernail paints on the front site. Poor mans night sights. ;)

Thanks for all of your suggestions. I have one question about the Testor's paint: Wont it disolve the first time I get a little solvent on it?
