Default Will S&W adjustable revolver sights fit 1006 adjustable sights?

Obvious question here:

Will S&W adjustable revolver sights fit a 1006 with adjustable sights?

It looks as if they will -- and the suggestion is they will.

Has anyone tried it -- with what results?

The simple reason is my eyes don't pick up the Novak 3-dots any more -- and the revolver outline looks better.

Plus, night sights were available sometime back in revolver configuration -- and that would expand options if the operation is workable.

Thanks!

Default 1006 adjustable rear sight

I previously posted:

The rear sight blade & it's windage screw are not the same as on S&W revolver adjustable sights even though at first glance they might appear so. However, the windage screw's nut is the same as the ones used on S&W revolver adjustable sights.

I wanted to replace the 1006's rear blade as it had some minor damage. The new replacement 2-dot blade I purchased did not come with it's dots painted; weird. Because it's rear dots were slightly smaller than the front dot I decided to just go with a white outline rear blade (.146") used on the revolvers, which I had an assortment of on-hand.

The auto blade's threads are the same, diameter & pitch, as on the revolvers. The revolver's blade fits but is too wide (.530" vs .495") to allow it the full range of adjustment so each end to the blade needs to be filed down, contoured & blued to shorten it up.

Once reassembled the nut needs to be staked on the screw the same way you do on a revolver by slightly flaring the screw's hollow end where it pass thru the nut, so it won't come off when adjusting the sight's windage.

Bluedot37,

Great info! Just what I needed!

Suddenly, 3rd Gens with adjustable sights aren't off-limits to me now...And THAT'S a big deal.

What about the LPA's that are designated for 3rd Gen 10mm S&W's?

Nothing wrong with replacing the Novaks with LPAs.
