Froggie,I'm pretty sure you're right. I know I got a Micro sight from E-bay that was supposed to be for a Ruger Mark 1 and it worked out fine.

Default Addendum

I've seen or owned all three of the sights mentioned on semi-auto pistols, and decided to do a bit more research... but if you have thought about getting anything useful on the subject out of Stroebel's sight book (the "SCSW" of sights) don't bother... it aint there!

Anyway, I have little to no info about the King rib assembly for the revolver, and that's what really got me interested when I saw them in a couple of threads here. You guys just have to stop showing me all this neat stuff that brings lust to my heart! I can't stand it.

They're not S&W's, but both of these Colt's wear Micro Sights. The first an Army Special sporting a pair of Sanderson grips as well as a Micro hammer. The second a 1917 with what I believe to be Hurst or Farrant grips. The frame is cut for the grips on the 1917. It still shoots good, but is an ugly duckling for sure. I've been thinking about having it hard chromed or perhaps satin nickeled.

Well, this thread has lain dormant for a while, and now I have a question to be added to it. What few pix I have been able to find of the rear of the King ribs around the actual sight blade look as though they are used on a target sighted gun and utilize the little niche that S&W used for the elevation nut to anchor the rear of the rib and to make the King Sight's adjustment work. Is this the case or is it an optical delusion on my part? I'm still searching but I wonder, does anyone have a King full rib on a Bekeart Model or a 22/32 HFT? I'd love to see pix of that one!

TIA ~ Froggie

With the closeup of the "Cock-eyed" hammer I am glad to see that King was willing to release something with a booger on it. Its a good weld job, just not the degree of perfection I would have expected. I owned a King Super Target Colt Officer's Special and am still kicking myself for trading it off, it did not have the cock-eyed hammer.
