Real Talk

Here's what gets me going about that wheelgun sans front sight I linked the other day...

Taking the front sight off a Charter Bulldog is just pandering.

A Baughman ramp-type front sight does nothing to make drawing a handgun slower or more snag-prone. Its presence does nothing to make a revolver harder to "point-shoot", if that's the sort of thing you like to do for some reason.

Removing the front sight has literally no advantage except a marketing one, for signaling to the cluefulness-challenged.

With a dab of nail polish (or, if you want to be bougie about it, luminescent sight paint) and, hey presto! Your simple Baughman combat ramp is now a hi-viz front sight!
