The front sight can be changed by hand with no tools.
Nice guns and 7.5" production revolvers aren't made all that often.
These guns had nothing to do with the performance center.
They were the first revolver I know of to use the rear sight with a rounded front edge. All had a round butt.
Thanks Joni,
You answered all my questions regarding the MagnaClassic. You are a wealth of knowledge!
Also, thanks for all the replys, and photos.
