My Ranch Hand (38/357) shot high right out of the box as most others do. Ordered a higher front sight and a lower rear sight to compensate for this! Other than that problem....I love my Ranch Hand!!

I would just have left it alone, ammo and distance could account for the high shooting. I have many pistols shooting high, from 50ft out to 50yds, just an inch or so and most ammo flattens out at 200yds. Just a friendly info-you and also JMO

I had to cut a slot in tge bottom of the rear of the rear sight so it would sit lower. Now it shoots to the POA on my 45lc RH.

Cheers,
Mad

I filed a slot in mine down to the bottom of where it dishes out in the front. I then cut the Buckhorn down to make the slot shorter and had to file the top of the elevator down so it would not get in the way of the sight picture. Mine was shooting about 18 inches high until I did this now at 25 yards it shoots POI. I will get a fiber optic front sight for it next month. Mine is in 45 Colt. I did not want to mess with a front sight now because I am going to use it for some hunting applications. I made a sling that goes around my neck and holding it out on the wrist with one hand and the forearm on with the other is real steady. I added a magazine swivel mount from Uncle Mikes for trhe sling swivel. I have had it about a week shot it a couple of times getting it sighted in before and after the rear sight work. I like it.

I like it, but I'm still not seeing how it's legal. They can call it a pistol all they want, but it has a stock and is designed for 2 hand use. I understand that requires a 16 inch barrel. Can someone tell me what I'm missing?

Mine was shooting really high to when I got it, sent it back and fixed it and for some reason put a new stock on it (maybe got damaged in shipping)? got it back a week later and shoots great now and it did not cost me a dime.

legally barrel length is what makes it a pistol. If it had and actual rifle strock I beleive it woud be illegal.

The correct answer why it is a pistol is it is manufactured as a pistol. As long as a NEW receiver that has never been on a long gun (rifle) is used it is legal. That is the key and is why guns like the Remington and Savage Bolt action handguns were legal.
