Having owned a Ruger Bisley .44 mag. in the mid 80's, I'm ready to get back into the singleaction market. I'm interested in the 4 5/8" barrel I would prefer the blued model, but I've read that shooting heavier (300 grain or more) bullets requires a taller front sight. I can see that on the stainless model that the front sight is pinned and I believe the front sight on the blued model is soldered on. Is the pinned sight removal as easy driving the pin with a punch or is there more to it than that. Heating and removing the front sight on the blue model and resoldering a new sight would probably require rebluing. Is it worth that to have a blued gun or should I just go with the stainless?
